Is there a way to merge mp3 files in iTunes.
I want to merge 13 small parts of a DJ set, to create one mp3 file?
Or if i cant do it in iTunes is there any other program you would reccomend?


You should use the "cat" command in the Terminal:
$ cat *.mp3 > bigfile.mp3

Or, if you want to see which order your files have been concatenated:
$ for i in *.mp3; do echo $i; cat $i >> bigfile.mp3; done
