  mpTrim - remove parts of mp3 files
I used to use WinAmp and StreamRipper to grab music from internet radio stations. The mp3 files they created often had long silences or parts of other songs on them. I discovered that mpTrim did a fine job of fixing them up and making sure the volume was good. It's a small program and it's easy to install. The only thing I thought it needed is some type of "wizard" interface for new users. It's a little tough to figure out how to use it at first.

What exactly can mpTrim do for you?
mpTrim can trim MP3s - removing the silence or unwanted parts.
mpTrim can adjust the volume of MP3s. Volume change can be manual or automatic (volume normalization).
mpTrim can fade-in/out MP3s (to fix abrupt beginning/ending).
mpTrim can clean-up MP3s and recover wasted disk space.
mpTrim keeps the music quality intact, no matter how many times you process an MP3, because it works directly in the MP3 format without having to decode/re-encode. That also makes it very fast.
mpTrim is free - no evaluation period or time limit. Download it here
mpTrim is available in many languages, see the localization page.
mpTrim works with Win98/Me/NT4/2K/XP.
