Wanted - intelligent mp3 splitter

I want a program that will look at an mp3, determine the silences, and then split the mp3 into smaller files at conveniently quiet points. I do not want to do it manually.

Does such a thing exist?

(i'm splitting an audiobook so I don't have to listen in 60 min increments)

Goldwave can do that. I use it to split my Audible.com files into 30 min increments and it has filters to split only where its quiet.

I've used MP3split - not a GUI but works great. Plus its free!

Thanks to both of you! I started out with goldwave and it was working well, but I was starting to dread spending the entire afternoon feeding through 50 cds.

I grabbed mp3split, and after a few stupid mistakes which resulted in a 3000 track cd, I got the hang of things and I think I know enough to create a batch file which will run all day and night unattended and split everything for me.
