[Freeware] A simple and handy MP3 Cutter and Editor
« on: May 09, 2011, 06:38 AM »

This Free MP3 Cutter and Editor is a tiny, portable Windows program. Originally I coded it for my own personal use only.

Yes there're loads of free mp3 editors out there already, but more often than not, I found them to be either too powerful or cumbersome for my simple editing needs.

Hopefully someone will also find it useful.

Looks good!

Do you support FLAC or any non-lossey formats?

The program works with PCM Wave format internally. Wave file load/save support will be added later.

Am also considering to support FLAC.

The program works with PCM Wave format internally.

Does this mean if an MP3 is decoded to WAV, cropped, and then re-encoded to MP3?

If so, surely this means further degradation of the original file?

[Of course I understand that other operations such as fades would necessitate re-encoding since the underlying data is actually changing!]

For some of the editing commands involved, decoding/re-encoding is unavoidable.

This program works in a way that the output quality should be as high as possible while still keeping a reasonably small file size.

After all, most of us are not that picky as professionals, who are unlikely to use a tool like this.

BTW, the latest version lets you save decoded MP3 to the lossless WAV format.
