Placed all my *.mp3 files to a folder, and open Terminal to that folder ..
Especially when the files have helpful names such as 01.mp3, the seemingly endless list of files that results in your i Tunes library makes listening to a book quite a chore.
Lucky for you, I have an absolutely free method to make listening to books a pleasure again by combining all the separate files into one audiobook file.
The method uses a script from Doug’s Apple Scripts for i Tunes, an extremely useful site with a plethora of scripts for Apple’s media application.
The particular script I’ll be using is called Join Together and uses Quick Time to stitch the files together into larger one.
However, it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.
You can also double-click to change the names of the tracks, so that they correspond to the chapter names later.
Add all the appropriate tags and information for the audiobook.
Once you’ve downloaded Join Together, open the application, and open i Tunes. ) and clicking, select all the tracks in i Tunes that you want to combine, then switch to Join Together and click the button at the bottom of the window labelled ‘Get Tracks From i Tunes’.
This grabs all the tracks you have selected in i Tunes and adds them to the list in Join Together.
