How to add blank between joined tracks?
By default, MP3 Joiner merges all tracks directly and they just play one right after another with no blank space between. If you want to add blank between joined tracks, you need to have a blank MP3 file, for example, 5 seconds blank MP3 file, and then add it right after the MP3 file you are going to merge in the merge list box.

If you don't have a blank MP3 file, you can use a recorder to make it. Please download a free trial version of Audio Recorder Pro from our download center, and make the blank MP3 file as you need (please use the same MP3 encoding parameters when recording, e.g. sample rate, bit rate, channel, etc.).

Sometimes when I listen to the merged MP3 file, I hear a short noise at the point where the MP3 files are joined, how to resolve it?
This problem is caused by the inconsistent data in your source MP3 files you are joined. To resolve this, you may need to re-encoding them before merge. 

You can download a free trial of "MP3 Audio Converter" from our download center and it can help you to re-encoding them to fix the inconsistent data - just load the MP3 files in MP3 Audio Converter and select MP3 as output format. If you want to keep the similar file size after converted, please set the same encoding parameters as the originals (e.g. sample rate, bit rate, Stereo/Mono).

What is CUE file?
CUE file is a simple plaintext file that contains track information of one specific MP3, such as the title, performer, time position of each tracks, here is a sample of CUE file:

PERFORMER "MP3 Performer"
TITLE "MP3 title"
FILE "MP3 file name" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
     TITLE "Title of Track 1"
     PERFORMER "Performer of Track 1"
     INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
     TITLE "Title of Track 2"
     PERFORMER "Performer of Track 2"
     INDEX 01 01:23:76
   TRACK 02 AUDIO
     ...

MP3 Splitter is able to import the track information (title, performer and time) and automatically insert all tracks in the split list from a CUE file, therefore, you don't have to manually add the track information for splitting.

Why MP3 splitter & Joiner says that the file was already in use and asks if I would like to abort when I start to split or join mp3?
The message indicates that at least one of the files you want to generate has been locked either by a application or by operation system. Most possible, the file was locked by your Windows Explorer if you selects a MP3 file in  the explorer. (please refer screenshot). Therefore, you can either close the explorer or just click another directory to unlock the MP3 file.

The MP3 file will be locked once it is loaded by MP3 splitter. Sometimes, you will get the same message if you want to join MP3 files to overwrite a MP3 file in MP3 Joiner which was just loaded by MP3 Splitter. In this case, you can load another MP3 file to unlock that MP3 file.
