Is there a way to merge mp3 files in iTunes.
I want to merge 13 small parts of a DJ set, to create one mp3 file?
Or if i cant do it in iTunes is there any other program you would reccomend?

MacBook 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1gb memory, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

    You could try Garageband or Soundtrack Pro, to merge the audio files.

    You can alsp use iMovie to do this. It is a little easier than Garage Band.

    It's pretty simple:

    Just open Garageband, drag one track on. Drag the next track right after that one. Export as .m4a

    I put my audio files into iMovie but dunno what to do now?
    I did it in iMovie 06, but i also have 08?

    It is pretty simple. You drag them from the clips in the order you want them to the bottom pane. Being they are audio, they may already be in this lower pane. The pane should state " Drag clips here to build your project". That is where you can edit the clips, control their volume, and create transitions from clip to clip. If you just are looking to put them together, just drag them down to this bottom area, confirm they are in the right order, and if not drag them so they are. When you are down, under the share menu select /Share... and a menu of choices will come up. If you select "Expert Settings" you will have maximum control of the quality of the output. Go through the steps it tell you to, and you should have your audio the way you want it.

    You should use the "cat" command in the Terminal:
    $ cat *.mp3 > bigfile.mp3

    Or, if you want to see which order your files have been concatenated:
    $ for i in *.mp3; do echo $i; cat $i >> bigfile.mp3; done


    Ave, Saabi.

    See this -> Join Together v5.1.5
    "This AppleScript Studio application will enable you to join the files of selected iTunes tracks together--including CD tracks--with QuickTime and export them as a single AAC file/track. Optionally, with Apple's ChapterTool application installed (download link included), it will create a "chapterized" audio file of the exported AAC file."
