Hi guys,
I am just looking for a simple piece of Mac software to cut a 2 hour audio file in half so i can burn to two cdr discs.

I cant rember if logic can do this?

I am trying to do this before christmas, as it is going to be a present for someone. :eek:

I would think even Garageband could do this. Is it a protected audio clip? I've used Garageband for doing stuff like this so I'm sure Logic could do it.

If not Garageband, Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) is a free simple solution. I use SoundStudio (http://www.freeverse.com/soundstudio/) (which is not free, but used to be bundled with Macs -- it came with my iBook). Rogue Amoeba also recently released Fission (http://www.irecordnow.com/), which is not free.

no its not a protected audio file, it is a DJ mix from 1993 but 2 hours long so needs just one cut towards the middle.

QuickTime Pro can do it, too.

regardless of which software you use, shouldn't you make multiple song start markers? i'd be irritated to get a 74 minute CD w/o markers.
