Editors' Review

+

No matter what the reason, there are times when listening to an entire song is just too much. Free MP3 Cutter helps you slice off any unnecessary parts of an MP3 track you don't want. The program has no extras but does what it is supposed to do well.

This program's outdated layout isn't going to win it any awards. That does, however, mean it's easy to find the exact feature you're looking for. It's hard to say if that's a testament to how simple the layout is or how lacking the program is in the features department. Free MP3 Cutter is just that: an MP3 slicing program. It will let you pick any start point and end point for a track and will wipe the rest away. It keeps your original file intact, but it won't let you save in any format other than MP3. It won't add any effects or change anything about the part of the track you cut out either.

Don't mistake this program for a serious audio editor. If you're looking for a program like that, you'll have to keep searching. However, if you're looking to carve some excess bulk from a song, Free MP3 Cutter is a fine choice. It does exactly what you would expect it to, and does it without any hiccups.

"Does not work."

December 09, 2013  |  By xJebix

 |  Version: Free MP3 Cutter 1.01

Pros

None. -

Cons

It wants me to download a newer version of Windows Media Player.

Summary

It wants me to download a newer version of Windows Media Player in order to work. Why would I want to download WMP when WMP don't work on my pc? The description says nothing about needing a WMP update in order to work. I have downloaded 6 programs so far and not one has yet to cut a one hour peace of mp3 track I have. Worthless.

"Ads on a bunch of unwanted ad-ware"

May 20, 2013

 |  Version: Free MP3 Cutter 1.01

Pros

free, easy to use

Cons

The program ad on a bunch of unwanted ad-ware to your computer when it is installed. This junk is added on even though I deselected the options of adding any else but the program when I installed it.

It changed my search engine and added it's installed search engine to my browser toolbar.

Now I also have a bunch of unwanted ads popping up.

Even though I uninstalled the program all the garbage that program installed on my computer remains.

DON"T INSTALL THIS PROGRAM!!!

Summary

Full of ad-ware, hijackers and other unwanted Mal-ware!!

"Resulting File 80% Bigger!"

May 03, 2013  |  By asdfsafasddgasg

 |  Version: Free MP3 Cutter 1.01

Pros

It works easily and quickly.

Cons

-The file created is way way bigger than the orignial!?
-Loads junk on your computer and takes over your browser even if you deselect those choices. Shame on you Cnet!

Summary

First off, my browser was hijacked after installing it. There are choices to load toolbars and Home Page re-directors, of which I deselected all of them. I had to do this a number of times and the font was really really small. It loaded 3 different programs on my computer, other than the MP3 Cutter, closed browser, and my Firefox thought is was loading on my machine for the first time when I restarted it. I uninstalled all of it and got it from another site. That site tried to install it's hijacking stuff, too, but deselecting there did prevent it from being installed. Also, when I uninstalled it the first time, it left 2 files in a folder with it's name.

The program works fine and quickly and I actually liked it's efficiency and ease of use. However, reducing the size of 30-50 MB files was my purpose, since there were 10 to 30 minutes of silence on them - I was converting lectures from cassette to MP3. Unfortunately, the resulting files were 75% or more larger than the original! I saw someone mention in a comment that the bit rate was 227kbps! Mine were recorded in 64. There is no way to change this in the program, so if your like me and are cutting just a voice file, then this is no good.

"perfectly simple to use"

January 05, 2013  |  By rsguitars

 |  Version: Free MP3 Cutter 1.01

Pros

nothing to figure out.nothing to learn.load file,mark file,name it then save it.

Cons

screen shot could be larger.

Summary

finally.a program that does one very simple task without having to decode some geekhead's language.there are not several taskbars with squares and squares of pictures to guess at what they mean and do. i was able to take songs out of our last jam session in just a few minutes on the first try.didn't have to click a combination of buttons just to set a marker then a few more clicks only to see that it wasn't really a marker after all. there is no need for a "help" section or a tutorial that blows by every fancy skill known to man. no redos,undos,file menues,views menues,TOOL buttons! how nice to have a program that has a frustration level of absolutley zero.this program only cuts sections out of a larger file. if you want to change the volume or delete a section or insert,fade-in,fade-out or any other editing feature,forget it. this is probably the easiest program on earth. FINALLY!

"It works exactly as expected, though with few features"

November 26, 2012  |  By MeNSheRWe

 |  Version: Free MP3 Cutter 1.01

Pros

*Quickly loads even large MP3s (at least 53MB/77 minutes)
*Simple cut marker selections
*Quickly creates single cuts
*Saves cuts as new files to preserve originals
*Plays original MP3 files as well as cut selections before cutting

Cons

*Cut selections can only be made by moving the slider with the mouse (arrow keys do not work for finer movements)
*Only creates single file cuts at a time (not capable of batch processing)
*Only opens MP3 files
*Only saves cuts as MP3 files
*Final cut files are larger than the originals

Summary

I experienced none of the problems other reviewers have mentioned and had a flawless experience using the program. There were no other programs installed at the same time Free MP3 Cutter 1.01 was installed - I am always VERY careful when installing free software for these very issues - so I don't know what program 'outyoursnout' was reviewing, but it couldn't have been this one (unless the installer has been replaced in the past 23 days, he/she is probably talking about the CNET installer, which I always skip). 'Alex_Cobleigh' is right about the resultant files being larger than the originals though: my cut files were more than twice as big as the originals.

I have an audio book that is split into 12 MP3 files ranging from 61.5 minutes long to 76.75 minutes long (I have no idea why it was cut up that way originally) that I've been listening to while driving to and from work. My commute is shorter than any of the files, so I wanted to cut the tracks to shorter lengths. I was able to cut all 12 files (cutting each into three or four files, one cut after the other, taking several hours due to performing other tasks as well), into 20-minute files (plus several shorter files) with no crashing, no slowness, no "Register to continue" messages, or any other problems. My original 12 files are 569MB while the 40 smaller files are 1.28GB, though that may be from a change in bitrate to 227kbps (the original bitrate is unknown).

"Not Free, won't uninstall fully."

November 03, 2012  |  By outyoursnout

 |  Version: Free MP3 Cutter 1.01

Pros

It was advertised as free. It had a standard File/Open menu which brought up an MP3 from my local drive. I could set a start and end point for trimming.

Cons

The installation requires multiple questions to not load unrelated crapware on you system, and not takeover your home page. Answer YES on first decline, then NO on second decline, to not receive additional payload.

There was no way to actually cut the section of an MP3 file I was working on after I marked the trip points.

When I went to save my file to see if it would automatically trim off the unwanted section, I was taken to a registration page for a $19.95 yearly subscription fee.

When I ignored the registration, "Free MP3 Cutter" told me it would only save 50% of my MP3 till I paid them.

Summary

This NOT free, and their use of an .org address is abuse of the DNS.
