RE: Trimming an MP3 file

I think it's more like "no CD ripper rips/ encodes single tracks without
adding at least a frame of silence to the beginning and/or the end of
mp3 files" I understand that you can use EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to rip
your CD as one big mp3 and have it create a cue file. You can, then,
use this cue file to split your long mp3 file into tracks (shorter mp3
files) using MP3DirectCut.

While I love MP3 DirectCut to edit mp3's (I use it to remove commercials
from radio shows I record on my Archos Recorder 20). I don't see why we
have to use this 2 stage procedure just to get seamless playback of a
CD. I don't want to have a CD as one long mp3 either.

I'm hoping we can find a solution somewhere, maybe in EAC settings.

I understand that due to technical
reasons an MP3 file _always_ must start with space. So I guess that
the only way to rip a CD with contiguous music is to produce one big
MP3 file.
