    Default Free/cheap music software

    Hello all.

    Does anyone know of any free music file editing software?...and no, Im not pirating music or anything like that.

    I just wanted a program that lets you do very simple things to an Mp3- such as adding a fade out at the end of the track for example.

    Many thanks to anyone that can help.

    Hello to anyone who can help.

    I finally got around to trying out the music software that was recommended above...Ive worked out how to cut up a track and apply a fade out (arnt I fantastic? )

    But when I try to export said edited track to an mp3 I get some message about the program does not do this (why on earth not!?) and I need some other bit of software to do this...

    Any experts on this program offer any advice?

    Many thanks in advance.

    You probably need the LAME encoder library to export mp3s. mp3 is a proprietary format (for now), IIRC there are licensing/patent issues with encoding (but not decoding) mp3s. You can get LAME here:
    http://lame.sourceforge.net/index.php

    If you don't want to fool with LAME, you can save it as a WAV file, and use CDex to convert WAVs to mp3. You should get CDex anyway, it's a good CD ripper.

    How about this: http://www.kreatives.org/kristal/index.php

    I never took notice of this one, but when I quickly glance through the site it seems that for a free program it's damn fine.
