MP3DirectCut

MP3DirectCut gives you the tools you need to remove sections of a video and then reattach the other sections to create a smooth finished product. The intuitive interface makes the app's features accessible to all users, and the quick processing makes completing a project an overall pleasant experience.

Pros

Nice interface: The tools and other controls for this program are clearly arrayed around the main window. There is a large time readout over the audio track visual, and three sections of controls below let you access the various Navigation, Editing, and Audio Tools.

Compression option: This program also give you the ability to compress your completed MP3 files into PCM format. This gives you the luxury of additional space on your machine, as PCM files take up considerably less space than their MP3 counterparts.

Cons

Tricky installation: This program comes in the form of a self-extracting ZIP file, but the automated extraction doesn't work. Instead, you have to locate the file in your Downloads folder and extract it manually. Once you've done that, though, installation can proceed normally.

Bottom Line

MP3DirectCut is a free program that offers plenty of functionality in a convenient and intuitive package. If you often need to remove sections of MP3 files or combine others, this is a good program to try.
