    i have an entire album of music that is all on one file in my itunes. i would like to split it into separate tracks. i have a number of applications that might work but im sure which one to try first. hopefully someone out there has done this before and can save me a lot of time trying different things.

    i have:

    audacity
    garageband
    audio highjack pro
    imovie hd
    dvd studio pro
    mpeg streamclip
    mpeg2 works

    garageband would certainly work

    as would imovie

    i'd lean towards gb though. open up the single file, and cut it up. then export as aiff. bring them all into itunes and convert to whatever you want (mp3, aac, etc)

    Right now, (as I'm on a PC) I vote for Audacity. It's pretty easy to just make a selection (by clicking and dragging) and then select "Export selection to (insert choice)"

    In the preferences menu, you can change the uncompressed export option from WAV to AIFF.
    If you want to export mp3, you may have to download the lame_enc.dll. I'm not sure, as I've never used audacity on a Mac.

    There is also another great shareware app, Amadeus 2.

    It lets you place markers into the song and then split the song according to these markers with one click. It also has one of the best convertors out there and implements support for any quicktime music format, and .ogg files.

    It's a little old, but usable.
