I tried this, sort of inefficient for combining, or at least I don't know how properly. It seems more like manual pasting.

No, you can't. it will uncompress each file, then let you combine, then convert back. So yes you will lose quality. there's a free program called mp3 direct cut. However, i know nothing about it other than it exists and allows you to edit mp3 files without uncompressing. Possibly someone might want to look this up.

Jenny, thanks, but if you have two MP3 files whether made in wave pad or
else where, can you combine them without the program opening them and
then having to reconvert them thus losing quality?

Neal,

the wave pad program is also the one i have been using.  It has many
features including a file converter, CD burning program, and such.
However,
the editor only deals with wav files.  After you have mixed, added
effects,
combined, whatever you want to do, then you can save it as an mp3.  It
will
open an mp3 file, but it uncompresses it for editing purposes.

Hope, with a name like wavepad, one might be tempted to think that
this program deals with wav files only.  Does it also combine MP3
files?

Thanks.

Neal

Hello, I use wavepad, and one of its selling points is that it will do what a

program like mp3 surgeon will do.  The best part of it all is that
it's free.  There is a Masters Edition, but you do not have to
upgrade, and the program is not just a trial basis.
Anyway, this is just another solution, perhaps, or it is what I use. I
hope this was of some use.

Hi, so where do you get MP3 surgeon?

Thanks for the tip about gold wave. I guess it's not as good an idea

as I thought.

To combine mp3 files without reencoding you need a program like mp3 surgeon. The joined files need to be at the same bit and sampling rate. Using goldwave works but the files get reencoded which means losing quality.
