Edit MP3 Audio Files

I love recording audio using a DAW, digital audio workstation on a desktop or laptop. My preferred choice is Reaper Digital Audio Work Station. I’ll be writing a separate post about Reaper, it’s a fantastic DAW, especially for the asking price! reaper-audio

Today though, I want to talk about “editing mp3 files”. I most often convert my final mixdown to a stereo or mono mp3 file for distribution. Sometimes I also record live from the internet to mp3 using other software. My point thoughmp3dc is that often I want to trim the beginning or ending of an mp3 file. Or, if it’s a long mp3 recording, I may want to remove something in the middle of the file, or maybe even add a fade in or a fade out, or normalize the file. It’s nice to be able to edit the mp3 file instead of having to reopen the wave file and then save it again as an mp3 file. And that brings us to the point of this post, a software new to me for editing mp3 files called mp3directcut“. It’s freeware and it works beautifully for editing mp3 audio files. I spent half a day yesterday editing mp3 files with mp3directcut and it made fast work of editing those files! Saved a ton of time not having to convert each mp3 file back to a wav file in my DAW and then exporting as an mp3 again.I can find no flaw in this freeware, it’s perfect for what I needed to edit my mp3 files. Here is a partial list of the features:

*Non-destructive cut, copy, paste
* Volume change, fade, normalize
* MP3 recording with ACM or Lame encoder
* Fast MPEG visualisation and easy navigation
* Layer 2 support (dvd/dvb audio)
* AAC support
* Batch processing
…and much more!

Check it out for yourself, great freeware!   mp3directcut
