Let's suppose you have one continuous audio file and you'd like to split it into several independent parts or you need only one segment of the track. AVS Audio Editor is the best solution for you in this case.
Step 1: Download and install AVS Audio Editor
Click here to get it. After the download is finished, run the AVSInstallPack.exe file and follow the installation wizard instructions.
Step 2: Open an audio file
To open an audio file that you intend to split click the Open button on the Home tab of the Ribbon Command Bar.
In the opened Windows Explorer window browse for the necessary audio file.
Step 3: Select the necessary segments
To select the parts of your audio file that you need to have as separate files use markers. Start by marking the first segment: click the required position within the Waveform Display with the left mouse button and press the Add Marker button on the Edit tab. The start of the file will be the beginning of the first segment and the added marker indicates its end.
In the same way set markers for other parts. The end of each segment automatically marks the beginning of the next.
You can also set markers automatically by clicking the Auto Markers button and then selecting one of the available modes in the opened window:
Click the Start Marking button.
Note: you can see the whole list of the markers you set, change their position and delete some of them, if necessary, using the Marker List. To open it press the View Marker List command button on the Edit tab:
Step 4: Split your audio into several files
As soon as all the required markers are set click the Split File by Markers button on the Edit tab. Your audio will be divided into several files according to the markers set. They will be named as the input file name + the order number and placed to the Files tab of the Effects and Filters panel.
Step 5: Save the resulting tracks
To save all the resulting tracks use the Save All option of the File tab. If you do not need all the tracks double click the required file at the Effects and Filters panel and use the Save as option to save this track with any name, location, format which can suit your needs best. For more detailed information on the saving options of AVS Audio Editor refer to the corresponding section of the Online Help.
That's the way how you can easily split a long audio file into so many parts as you need. Now you can proceed editing these resulting tracks taking advantage of various effects that AVS Audio Editor offers you.
