Marking sections of an MP3 mixdown for listeners to navigate to next/previous track

I am producing what would have been known as a continuous play CD in prehistoric times ! In other words, one long piece of music made up of different sections, think Jeff Wayne’s “War of the Worlds” only not as good!

Is there a way of demarcating different sections within an extended piece of music so when downloaded the listener can navigate the MP3 as if the sections were separate tracks? In the past I did this with audacity I think! (that’s audacity the software not the attitude!) :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

As ever thanks to all for reading this post and anyone that can bring light to my world of dark ignorance! :crazy_face: :rofl:


I had a look at what they said about it in the Audacity forum, which was informative.

Short answer is no. but check out what they were saying.

(I am not that steve, btw)

That depends on the player, not the encoder. You need to set the encoded files to an album and then the player can play the whole album without gaps.
But Cubase doesn’t render files as an album. You need to use an audio editor (Wavelab, Audacity) for this.
