Editors' review

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.

    "Works as advertised BUT"

    November 29, 2013   |   By Rick787

    Version: Free MP3 Cutter and Editor 2.6.0.1118

    Pros

    Works as advertised.

    Cons

    Software is inundated with malware,spyware and unnecessary "add ons" that jack your' computer up; I.e., changes to registry to name one. I was forced to "factory reset" my computer in order to eliminate all the crap that was included in the download. Disappointed CNET failed to warn consumers of the malicious nature of this download AND had the audacity to give it 4 stars. Unreal.

    Summary

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD unless you want to spend hours cleaning your computer of the various spyware-malware that is included with this software. One dandy "add on" included creates a pop up add every time your cursor touches a link. That is just one of literally dozens of changes to your' computer (registry) this download will inflict on your operating system. Lastly, no option is offered to download a "clean" version of this software.

    "Poor, re-encodes to a different format"

    February 02, 2013   |   By rp2709

    Version: Free MP3 Cutter and Editor 2.6.0.1118

    Pros

    Easy to pick section to cut

    Cons

    Re-encodes, not just cuts. Started with cbr files, found the cut versions were, I believe, vbr. Whatever they were, some played at totally wrong speeds. Uninstalled.

    "don't be scared away"

    January 30, 2013   |   By tonydibattista

    Version: Free MP3 Cutter and Editor 2.6.0.1118

    Pros

    easy install, VERY easy to use

    Cons

    none. unless you want more than what the title of the software is.

    Summary

    i was timid to install seeing only 1 review and not a very high # of downloads. - but, if you have half a brain and don't pound "accept" during the install, you'll see nothing change on your machine other than having a new tool to chop up mp3 files. i use it to take off crowd noise at the start and end of live show mp3s. it is insanely easy to use.
