How to join mp3's together?

Hi all,
This may not be related to this forum specifically but I'm hoping someone can help. I need to connect three mp3 songs together so there is no space at all between them. I have no clue where to start. Any suggestions for this idiot would sure be appreciated. Free software would be great. It is for my daughter's graduation ceremony and I have procrastinated too long!
Thanks very much for any help.

with mp3DirectCut (freeware) you can losslessly join the loss mp3 files, that is without re-encoding

one moment please...

you don't need to create a new mp3 from the songs; just use the builtin crossfader

(suggested fading time: ~10 sec)

quick'n'dirty method:

copy /b file1.mp3 + file2.mp3 + file3.mp3 + file_n.mp3 result.mp3

The resulting file is really dirty as it will contain the ID3 tags of the files somewhere in the middle etc. - maybe you will hear some short "plops" at the joining points. But however, the file will play well on all players, that's no big deal.

I use Audacity. It's free, and it has much of the functionality (if not all) of many of the other programs out like it that cost $$$$. And another nice thing about it is that if there is silence at the end/beginning of the mp3s to be joined, this program allows you to easily cut-it out.

Just Google it. It'll be one of the first results (if not the first).

I've used it to join many mp3s together. Just for example, there is a concept album that I own that just sounds better when you hear all of the songs in order, from beginning to end...so, I spliced them all together so that I could hear all of the songs in order, all together without having to take my mp3 player off shuffle.

you can use java programs to split and join mp3 files. Here is the link

Hi rockingravi,

Did you look at the date of that first post? If the OP was talking about a high school graduation, his daughter would be out of undergrad school by now.

Welcome, I made the same mistake when I first joined the forum. By sure to check the post's dates at the upper left corner above the poster's name. It is considered bad form to bring back old posts.

On the other hand, if you did this on purpose its not very funny.
