"Simple, reliable, easy trim and cleanup of mp3 files"
Small, fast, easy to use.
Reliably remove unwanted lead-in and trailing silence, or sounds.
Allows me to setup a fade-in or fade-out on recordings that start or end too abruptly.
Cleans and helps repair 'broken' mp3 files.
While easy to use, there is a short learning curve to understand the keyboard and concepts. Not really a con, as any program probably has similar need.
I have used this product from its early versions - liked it so well that I registered it quite a while back. It continues to improve and refine over the years.
It is very reliable and accurate on allowing me to :
- Trim or remove unwanted silence at beginning or end of song,
- Trim or remove unwanted sounds at beginning/end of any mp3 file,
- Lets me add custom shaped/length fade-in and fade-out,
- Will help to repair 'broken' mp3 files,
- can split long tracks,
- does all this without re-encoding - so original sound quality is retained.
I use it on music files, and also on recordings made from internet 'radio' and audio conference files.
(this probably sounds a lot like the program description, but I really have used it to do all these things on my various mp3 audio files.)
Highly recommended. Mac platform only, as far as I know.
