Projects / wavbreaker


wavbreaker is a tool to take a wave file and break it up into multiple wave files. It makes a clean break at the correct position to burn the files to an audio CD without any dead space between the tracks. There is also a commandline tool to merge wave files together (wavmerge).

    Release Notes: This release fixes three bugs that have surfaced since the last release in May and also adds a silence-based seeking function. Now you can seek to silent passages of your wave files and create a track break there. This should simplify editing of old LP or cassette recordings that have been recorded as one big piece of audio data.
