Any way to edit mp3 without converting to wav?

I'm trying to put song breaks in a complete album mp3. Is there any program that can do this without fist converting to wav format?

thanks.

Problem is that it's still being converted to wav and then back to mp3 after you do your stuff with it.

Really? I haven't done any MP3 with SF, but that would be a big problem. So forget that.

As far as I know there aren't any actuall editing apps for MP3s that don't uncompress the MP3 before processing the file (I could be wrong). The only things I'm aware of are splitters and stuff like HN mentioned. Stuff like that is easy because all that needs to happen is knowing the beginning and ending mp3 frame that you want to crop to. They don't actually have to process any of the audio in order to do the splitting.
