Unfortunately, there is no simple automatic way to chop up one continuous recording into individual tracks, unless you get some utility that relies on silence between tracks. However, if you don't mind manually choosing the start and end of each track, the tool MP3DirectCut (which is freeware) will do the trick.
To use this utility, open the continuous recording you wish to break up, then perform the following:
- Navigate left / right until the yellow broken line in the middle is within the silence just before the beginning of the track (silence is where there is no amplitude level, shown in blue.)
- Click 'Set Begin' to mark the start of the track.
- Drag the navigation slider until you see the next slient region.
- Use the left / right navigation arrows to navigate such that the yellow broken line falls in the silent region.
- Click 'Set End' to mark the end of the track.
- Press 'Play' to verify this is the end of the track, otherwise go back to step 3.
- Click the 'File' menu and select 'Save selection...' to copy this selection into a seperate file and give it the name of this track.
- Go back to step 1, but starting at the silent region following the selection you've just copied out.
If you are looking for a similar utility for MPEG2 files such as if you have a single MPEG2 file consisting of several continuous music videos, Mpg2Cut2 does pretty much the same job for these, with the exception that it shows frames on screen rather than volume ampliltude.
