It is often necessary to merge multiple sound files into one recording. This need may arise for various reasons: merge ripped CD tracks into one, combine multiple chapters of an audiobook, etc. There are many great programs to achieve this, but very few of them are actually free. I’ve discovered that while all of these programs perform the task well, they also contain lots of other features, making them too complicated for the tasks. This is why when I needed the plain vanilla merging utility, I could not find one that was free – and decided to write one myself. The added benefit of writing one myself, of course, is that it has exactly the features I need – and none that I don’t. When it was done – I decided to give it away for free – to alleviate some of the pains I had.
Merge as many files as you like – no limitations by size, length, or number.
Sort files to be merged by filename (with or without directory), date/time or size.
Optionally write ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags into the merged MP3 file.
Optionally write VBR frame into the merged file – useful when merging files with different bitrates.
View detailed information about MP3 files to be merged, including MPEG header information and ID3v1 and ID3v2 information.
Choose to use ID3 tag from any of the files to be merged to write into the target file.
Display an image embedded into the MP3 files.
Play MP3 files from the list to be merged.
No complicated installation – simply unzip the program and run from any directory.
This is a very simple application to organize your files.
MoP does not use a database. It focuses on the files. The aim is to quickly and easily clean up your MP3 tags and filenames but, more important, to find the covers that are missing.
Where other softwares uses the “Album” to retrieve a cover, MoP uses the Artist AND the Title. So when you have huges collections of singles or compilations, you are able to find the covers for that song only. Of course, it can search for albums covers as well.
MoP as a built in RegEx engine that will allow you to extract the missing tags based on the file name. You will also be able to rename your misformed MP3 files based on the tags according to any pattern you provide.
MoP will always be improved ….. As it will be my main application to manage and edit my huge MP3 collection. I will be more than happy to receive critics, suggestions and demands to make it evolve 🙂
Organize music media files
Edit main tags (Artist, Title, Album, Genre, Cover)
Search Covers ON-LINE based on the artist and title, NOT ONLY on albums
GXLame is an MP3 encoder based off of LAME v3.98.4 and v3.99b0 which has been heavily optimized for high-quality, low-bitrate VBR encoding. It is similar in concept to other popular encoders at these bitrates such as some AAC codecs, Vorbis mods, and so forth at bitrates down to 56kbps. This codec does not rely on aggressive lowpassing or resampling to achieve these low bitrates, and the quality aims to be acceptable at much lower bitrates than have come to be expected of the standard.
mp3tomid chung is a realtime free polyphonic high quality mp3 audio to MIDI converter written in freebasic with fbsound. It converts mp3 files to polyphonic piano MIDI data sent to the chosen MIDI out port, connected for example to a MIDI recorder to produce MIDI files, or to the onboard PC MIDI mapper for direct listening.
converts mp3 files to MIDI in realtime
compatible with freemp3_chung & mp3_chung playlists (.mp3list files)
include 3 band equalizer, autovol+compressor, speed control for the mp3 input
auto pitch lock
written in compiled freebasic and uses fbsound to handle mp3 files
source code (.bas .bi freebasic files) is included in the zip file
BPM Counter is a fast and accurate beats per minute detector for MP3 music. It may be helpful for DJs who need to get information about the entire music collection quickly and for any kind of remixing/sampling stuff. Do not trust online BPM databases, because each musical composition can have several versions with a different tempo. Don’t waste your time for manual tapping with a metronome, just navigate to any folder with music and BPM finder will show all compatible audio files (MP3 and WAV) and start BPM detection automatically.
Have you already encountered the fact that your analyzer returns half or double value? This is a fairly common mistake, called an octave error. Most often this happens with simplified algorithms that cut off the frequency spectrum of the audio signal. Seeing that, we use full-range audio decoders from Audio Converter Plus to ensure a balance between performance and precision.
