Free MP3 Cutter and Editor works effectively, is easy to figure out, and includes a few bonus features that add some value. While it won't do everything you might expect, if you only need to trim an audio file, this program is one of the easiest ways to do it.
In addition to letting you trim any MP3 file, Free MP3 Cutter and Editor also accepts WAV format, which means it can take care of most audio files you have on your PC. The program packs its main features in a straightforward interface that even non-experts can figure out in no time. In addition to trimming off excess audio, the program can change the volume and fade your tracks in or out. It can also convert tracks from mono to stereo and vice versa. Converting mono to stereo is a really basic process, as the program just duplicates the mono track. However, if you wish to convert mono to stereo with spatial depth, you'll need to install another tool this program suggests. While the program performed its main functions without any problems, one feature that we really felt was missing was a much-needed "Undo" button. Since it doesn't insert a timestamp for more precise cutting, make sure you test things before you make any cuts or trims on your final file by playing the file from inside of the menu.
Free MP3 Cutter and Editor is less intimidating than more powerful software while being almost just as effective. If you need an easy-to-use tool for trimming and basic editing of your audio files, this one will serve the purpose just fine.
