I can't really see this programme improving on mp3DirectCut

V2.5

Numanoid is right. Worse, MP3 Cutter alters bitrate despite the claim that the quality is not changed.

I tested with an 6.6MB OTR file encoded at 32kbs / 24000 Hz (a 28-minute Dragnet episode).

My comment got trimmed. MP3Direct Cut loads and saves almost instantly. MP3 Cutter took 20 seconds to load, 40+ seconds to save a cut, and upsampled to 128KBS. No option to change this, no position markers. Avoid the program for now.

Ian: you're right -- I just verified that it upsamples. Updating entry.

hmmm.. sounds like mp3DirectCut is superior in almost every way, would it hurt to remove this entry?

Chips: MP3 Cutter has fewer features but a much smoother, approachable interface. I think it still has a place in the database as a basic audio editor, where mp3DirectCut is for advanced users.

The developer is not offering the portable (zip package) version anymore.

V2.5

Further to lautrepay's observations:

Comparing the current webpage to previous:
The Download installer Version has grown from 962KB to 1.01MB
Both Version history pages are up to 2.5 and have not changed

_____________ Built Version
Last zip file exe 10Jul11 2.5.0.357
New install exe 25Sep11 2.5.0.659

The installer will extract OK

But beware the following:
The License has changed with added clauses referring to:
[...
...By Installing the Facemoods toolbar, you agree to Facemoods Terms of Use and Facemoods Privacy Policy. You can easily uninstall this application at any time.

...Facemoods toolbar may change your homepage, search provider and tab to start.facemoods.com. If you prefer not to install this application, uncheck "Install Facemoods" when the 'Select Components' screen appears.
...]

Note: This is just a quick review of what I can see, I have not installed or tested the new version

V2.5

MuseTips Free MP3 Cutter and Editor is currently at v2.7.0 (changelog at http://www.musetips.com/free-mp3-cutter-and-editor-version-history.html).

Only an installer is provided for downloading, but it can be (Uni)extracted and is portable/stealth.

Entry updated.

v2.7.0

A few disjointed comments...
1. The version is up to 2.8
2. The portable option has been reinstated.
3. I just wanted to snip unwanted sections; this did it simply and intuitively.
I find "more advanced" editors get confusing.
4. MBAM finds a PUP in the file. Seems like a false positive to me (I added an exclusion)

v2.7.0
