Cut automatically between tracks / silences

I have a recording. 5hrs +, it is a compilation of songs with a pause / gap in between them. I know how to manually split it into single tracks.

Is there a way to do this automatically? And save it to mp3?

Thanks

See this page in the manual: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/splitting_a_recording_into_separate_tracks.html

You may be able to use Analyze > Silence Finder but it does depend on proper silence (often the inter-track gaps on LPs will fool it) and it may generate false positives.

Thanks, heading over there to have a look!
