HV Review: Xmp3split

Ok, the probability of you needing this software is probably pretty slim, but if I did, then someone else might. It's for splitting mp3 files into smaller sections. It's amazingly easy, all you do is set your preferences to the length time time you want your sections into and tell it where to go, then drag your mp3 into the program, and voila! I was really astonished by the speed, my audio file was 18.5 hours long and I split it into 30 minute sections and it took less than 10 seconds! It's a Mac program, it's free, it's small and you can find the download here. There are also programs like AudioSlicer that look for silences in an audio file so it will split where songs end instead of set time segments.

(For those of you who are curious what my file was, I had the audio book of The Half Blood Prince , but it was all one long mp3, which is perfect for my iTunes, but Mike got an iPod and it's easier to have smaller sections. Yes, I'm a Harry Potter fan girl. Yes, I loooove audio books. Yes, I'm a nerd.)
