...be able to chapter mark my live mp3 recordings.

Turns out Audacity doesn't do that.

Any suggestions to free software that does? Thanks!

Since the MP3 standard does not have a chapter mark standard, how to implement this?

I think we'd have to know more about the MP3 player software before we can toss out ideas.

on a standard music CD with tracks). My CD player lets me play them consecutively or jump to any track (which can be considered a chapter mark). And now I come to think about it, so does Windows Media Player when I offer it a folder full of mp3-files on my hard disk (or on CD or DVD or USB-stick) . If I call those "Chapter 01", "Chapter 02" etc, it would quite well mimic the behaviour of one mp3-file with internal chapter marks.

Audacity can surely split your live recording in as much parts as you want.

Audacity *does* allow me to split songs apart, but then what happens is, when they're put back together, it's sounds very stitched together. You get that little pause where it should be a smooth transition between songs.
