Way to stich mp3s (actually AACs) together in iTunes?

Hey,



I've been ripping some lectures on CD to iTunes. The lectures are divided up into 5-6 minute bits, and run for 30-45 minutes total--6-9 tracks each.



I was hoping to be able to stich them together to create 1 track for each lecture instead of 6-9 tracks each. So I was monkeying around and I noticed the Join CD Tracks command in the Advanced Menu. Works great at creating a single large track.



Unfortunately, I already ripped a good chunk of the lectures as individual tracks. Is there any simple way to stich these together? Preferably in iTunes? (I'd be happy even if it was a mirage that just played all 9 tracks of a lecture in a row, but I hate having to scroll through a billion (ish) tracks to get what I want.) Or in another free program? If there's no easy way, I'll just rerip them. But I was hoping to avoid that.



(FYI, I don't have QT pro; can you do it in QT without pro?)



Thanks in advance.

    There's a little AppleScript called Audio Splicer which can be found at http://www.malcolmadams.com/itunes/s...iswhereiwantit which will do exactly as you have said.

    Hmmm... Just tried it. It's weird. It does indeed create a single m4a file as big as all the others combined. But when I try to import it, it links to the final track already in iTunes. (And won't import.) When I play it in the finder or QT, it only plays the first track.



    Weird... very weird...



    Any tips?
