Stringing MP3s Together

September 1, 2011

Have two MP3 files and need to join them into one, but don't have (or want to open) an audio editor? Use a Windows line command instead. Open a command prompt and type

copy /b thefirst.mp3 thesecond.mp3 newfile.mp3

The result will be a seamless transition from the first file into the second.
