Really?  Audacity can chop to 0.01 seconds.  It's about the best you're going to get, and certainly good enough for anything you're going to need in SL.  The real trick is piecing them back together and getting them to play without a gap or a hiccup in SL.  That's almost impossible, especially if you have any lag.

Yeah, Audacity resamples the music each pass through the song and loses some quality on export of the 9 second segments.

Look in the LSL Sample Scripting library. I recall a script that preloads the music song clips into local memory prior to running the play option. You still can experience some choppiness but that's the best that can be done.

Use TAudioConverter 64bit to edit and chop your music into the 9 second blocks. It does NOT resample the music and no quality loss will be experienced. Be sure to NOT accept the 20 additional junk software offers that are bundled with it. LOL.

If you know how to format a .cue file you can automate the chopping process to occur automatically at conversion time. So if the song is named "Hot Tuna - Hot Tuna.flac" then...

Sample Cue Internal Information:

PERFORMER "Hot Tuna"
TITLE "Hot Tuna"
FILE "Hot Tuna - Hot Tuna.flac" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    TITLE "Hot Tuna Song 01"
    PERFORMER "Hot Tuna"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    TITLE "Hot Tuna Song 02"
    PERFORMER "Hot Tuna"
    INDEX 01 00:00:10
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    TITLE "Hot Tuna Song 03"
    PERFORMER "Hot Tuna"
    INDEX 01 00:00:20
  TRACK 04 AUDIO
    TITLE "Hot Tuna Song 04"
    PERFORMER "Hot Tuna"
    INDEX 01 00:00:30

The above woudld chop the input song into 4 - 10 sec files in the format you select [wav] on the TAudioConverter software.
