WAV file joiner (free...hopefully)
« on: January 23, 2016, 07:40:29 PM »
Anyone know of a FREE program (Windows or Linux) that will join wav files back into 1 long wav?

I need to convert some old shows where I don't have a copy of the full master into 1 file of the complete show.

Only thing I've found so far WAV Joiner and it's $30.

This is something I'm going to use for a dozen or show shows and be done forever...I'd prefer to spend $30 on beer.

EDIT:
I do have Wavelab 6 available as well. Maybe I could use that somehow.

I almost always use shntool's join function. I've been using it for 10+ years so the command line nature does not cause me any issues.

If you have a problem relating to the Live Music Archive (http://www.archive.org/details/etree) please send an e-mail to us admins at etree(AT)archive(DOT)org or post in the LMA thread here and we'll get on it.

Cool. I'll check into that. I'm "medium comfortable" with command line.

As far as Wavelab is concerned I've found a way (via Audio Montage) to load all of the tracks in order...but it puts a 2s gap between songs. I can change each gap to 0s, but that is a PITA. Trying to figure out if there is a setting to change the gap to 0s on all of the tracks.

BOOM! Got it.

For anyone interested. In Wavelab 6.0:

1. Open new Audio Montage (select your bitrate).
2. In the MONTAGE  window that opens, select Options > Edit default pre-gap... and change it to 0s.
3. Right click in the area where the WAV file will display and pick: Insert Audio File(s)...
4. Navigate to your files
5. Make sure the radio box is selected for Line up the current track. Click OK.
6. Done!

Another way is with foobar. If you load the files in the order you want, select them all and right click > convert > "wav one file" (may have to setup the format first for it to be in the short list)

Makes a single wav file in the directory with all the tracks.

For Linux, there's also some command-line tool called wavmerge that comes with wavbreaker (http://wavbreaker.sourceforge.net).

With sox (Linux, Windows, Mac: http://sox.sourceforge.net/):

   sox --no-clobber input1.wav input2.wav input3.wav output.wav

You can have dozens or even hundreds of input files.  I use "--no-clobber" to
prevent mistakes where I might overwrite a file.

I use a program called addawav.  Works like a charm, small in size and free.
