Elpetozede ~ Split An Album Into Tracks


Elpetozede is a multi-platform, open source tool to split a wave file (.wav), which contains the complete audio recording of one side of a vinyl record or a cassette tape into single wave files, one for each track. It searches an Internet database (musicbrainz.org) for the album data, so, with a little luck, you won’t need to type all the track information by hand.
