Concatenate files

  johnincrete 08:53 27 Feb 2009

I had an audio file (speeking not music)over 70 minutes long that I split up into 4 minute bits and then burnt to CD (so it's easy to repeat a small bit). To save space, I deleted the original but now I want it back as one whole piece.
The tracks are in .wav format but I can easily convert to mp3
In Unix it's easy: a + B + c > d. Can I do the same in Windows? I'm using XP Home SP3

I have never joined files before, only split them with Audacity but I can't find any way that it will put them back together. Google comes up with quite a lot of programs that promise to do it, though some are limited shareware. There are some freeware ones too and this is just a sample of them. click here

Hi johnincrete,

You can join any number of sound files in Audacity, go to File Open and load in your first sound section, then go to File New which opens a new instance of Audacity and load your second sound section, from there you can Copy section two to section one and so on. Audacity is a freeware program and can be found here click here

Looks like I will have to do it the long way - open the first in Wavepad & then Insert at End each successive file. Tedious!!!
