Crop an Audio File - How?


Got an audio file that's 4 minutes long. Want to crop out the first 14 seconds to make a new file.

Have Windows Media Player, Real Player, Quicktime, Easy CD Creator, and more. Tried everything, but nothing seems to work.

Without getting into some heavy duty audio manipulation programs for this one time effort, is there anything in Windows XP or any of the above-mentioned programs I already have that can do the job?

If you want to keep the first 14 seconds and get rid of the rest you could use sound recorder to record it. Otherwise I don't know of any wav editor that comes with XP. You could try Exact Audio Copy . It comes with a small wav editor which you could use to do it. The programs free with no spyware of any sort. One other thought. If you happen to have a Soundblaster Live sound card the software that comes with it installs a wav editor. If this is the case have a look in the Creative group in the start menu.

Does quality count? You could fire up the tune with Media Player and stick a microphone in front of your speakers and record with sound recorder.

Soundblaster's Wave Editor can't handle mp3 files, which my file is. I thought one of my programs had the ability to convert mp3's to wav's or wma's, but I can't find that either.

Solved my problem.

Did a search here, and found a reference to MUSICMATCH. A great little program that, among other things, can convert any music format to any other music format. This, together with Soundblaster's Wave Studio did the deed.

Glad you got it. I wasn't aware it was an mp3 file (guess I should have asked) or my answer would have been a bit different. Guess it doesn't matter. You won in the end anyway.
