Easy to use, works great! 5 stars by Mike_Troy Dec 04, 2015 (Read all my 8 reviews)
This is a very small program, that gives me the ability to clip MP3 files into smaller segments. I figured out how to use it in less than five minutes and had no problems with it. show Review details
Just one thing missing... 4 stars by bolgwrad Apr 27, 2015 (Read all my 20 reviews)
Please could we have a View-Zoom InOut function? That would make Mp3DirectCut absolutely invaluable. Otherwise, I can't fault it. show Review details
Best mp3 editor for any price 5 stars by JohnTesla Jan 11, 2011 (Read all my 6 reviews)
This is a very impressive product. It is simple, easy to use, and extremely fast. If you are familiar with other audio video editing software, this will be very easy to learn, and great to do strict editing or extraction of MP3 files into new MP3 files (no mixing, multitrack, or other trick editor effects, but that's not the product's intended use, so that's just fine). It has a terrific interface, complete with easy-to-use hotkeys. This makes it easy to scan or skip ahead in the audio file and select the exact points for editing. The best part is this is "a lossless stream editor", so you clip out sections of the MP3 file and save them without any encoding/transcoding. This means editing goes "disc speed" fast, and there is no loss in quality. I just edited over 40 hours of radio shows in MP3 format, and I got it done faster than any other program I've seen. I wish other programs were as capable well thought out. One last note is that sometimes exported MP3 files have an abrupt end, so you may want to insert a little dead space at the end of each file. This might be an MP3 issue(?). show Review details
