I am trying to do a couple of simple edits to a couple of audio files--basically removing some chatter and stuff to have only the song. I thought I had a converter that allowed me to do it, but it turned out that I had to download another file from the same company, which I did, but no matter where I set the start and end of the file, it kept cutting off the end. I've tried a few free editors online, but none of them have the functions I need. And I'm having a very bad day and I'm very unhappy. Which doesn't really enter into my question at all, but I needed to say that.

Anyway, if anyone knows of a freeware program that will let me do this without making me want to smash my head against the wall (any more than I already do, anyway), I'd appreciate the suggestion. Thanks.

For any audio manipulation, I live and die by Goldwave. It's an old program, but it does everything I've ever needed.

Might take a bit of practice to get used to all of it, but once I became comfortable with it, I found it to be the most accurate and user-friendly editor I've used.

Audacity is a go to program for stuff like this. I don't recommend it for anything large, but for simple, on-the-fly audio file editing, it's quick and easy.

You'll need the LAME library to export to MP3, but the instructions are at the link and it's pretty easy.

If your end result is some kind of online flash player, I recommend exporting to .WAV and converting to MP3 in something like iTunes. Yeah, it's a bit absurd, but I have had some issues with Audacity exported MP3s in things like the XSPF player.

To me the REAL bombshell was that Apple has been parallel building all of its software for Intel for the last 5 years. Like, OMGWTFOBGYN.
