MP1 Audio Editing / Split, Cut, Trim?

I’m looking for a solution to split .MP1 audio files, at given time stamps, without re-encoding.
 
Use case: Converting Digital Compact Cassettes (DCC’s) MPP files to MP1, then splitting albums into individual tracks.
 
I know that many years ago (late 90’s/early 00’s) some were able to split MP1’s using a program called “MP3 Splitter”.
I have found a couple of old versions of MP3 Splitter, and am getting mixed results.
 
As well, I’ve tried using ffmpeg. However, whereas ffmpeg has an MP1 decoder, it does not have MP1 encoding capabilities - so, while I am able to split the MP1 into tracks, the split files are being output as MPEG-PS files instead of MP1.
 
Thanks in advance for any advice or recommendations.

Try outputting mpa.

Are you sure that you need to keep the files as mp1?  If you are worried about quality loss, just use FLAC or some such.  Even high-bitrate mp3 would probably avoid noticeable quality loss.

Thanks! mpa works! I will go with that for archive purposes and convert to FLAC for daily use.
