Pcutmp3 is a Java based program that lets you cut and trim MP3 files losslessly (i.e. without any quality loss as there is no re-encoding). Ideal for removing adverts or unwanted intros/outros from your radio mixes.
Originally created by Sebastian Gesemann it is now maintained by Christopher Banes.
PCutMP3 -- Properly Cut MP3 v0.95b by Sebastian Gesemann
This tool is able to do sample granular cutting of MP3 streams via the LAME-Tag's delay/padding values. A player capable of properly interpreting the LAME-Tag is needed in order to enjoy this tool.

--cue <cue-filename> split source mp3 via cue sheet mp3 source can be omitted if it's already referenced by the CUE sheet --crop t:s-e[,t:s-e[..]] crop tracks manually, t = track# s = start sample/time (inclusive) e = end sample/time (exclusive) Time is specified in [XXm]YY[.ZZ]s for XX minutes and YY.ZZ seconds --out <scheme> specify custom naming scheme where %s = source filename (without extension) %n = track number (leading zero) %t = track title (from CUE sheet) %p = track performer (from CUE sheet) %a = album name (from CUE sheet) Default is "%n. %p - %t" --dir <directory> specify destination directory Default is the current working directory --album <albumname> set album name (for ID3 tag) --artist <artistname> set artist name (for ID3 tag)
