The easy way to trim MP3 and AAC audio without losing quality.

'easy Record and Trim' is a great way to record and trim audio and is super fast, accurate and easy to use. You can also create projects that allow you to save your work at any time. Then ‘export’ your trimmed file edits without any quality loss at all!

This is because 'easy Record and Trim' knows about the internal format of MP3 and AAC audio files and makes all its edits without any audio quality loss or file corruptions. It doesn't need to decompress and re-compress audio in order to trim or make any edits or view the audio so it's lightning fast, even with large audio files.

As well as trimming existing files 'easy Record and Trim' includes a direct MP3 or AAC file recording function.

Other key features:
• Multiple undo and redo
• Fast, loads a 2 hour file in a couple of seconds
• Works well with the Soundflower audio routing plugin
• Optional upgrade to the 'Pro' version for the full suite of editing commands

* Currently only unprotected AAC LC mono and stereo files are supported (the most popular AAC format)

Easy to use & does what it claims.

I use GarageBand when I need to do heavy-duty editing. But this is my daily go-to app for quick trims. It's much easier to use. I only held back one star because I need to keep reminding it that I upgraded to the paid version. Which, by the way, is totally worth it.

Does precisely what I needed

I had some AAC audio files with extra stuff at the beginning and the end that I didn't want included before I submitted them to my business concern. Sure, I could've imported them into GarageBand and trimmed out the heads and tails, but I'd lose audio quality when exporting/re-compressing back out of GarageBand into AAC. This tool provided nice "hand-holding" tips and I trimmed my files with nary a fuss and absolutely no muss. It's exactly what I needed, no more no less. (Apparently it does MP3 too with a separate add-on, but come on! MP3 is a 25 year old codec and we have much sharper implements in our toolboxes these days.)

Only cuts the beginning and end

With the free app, you can only cut/trim an MP3 or AAC file to remove material at the beginning or the end of the recording. If that is all you want to do, then this works great and does not require a re-encoding of the file (thus, there is no added distortion). If you want to divide or do more elababorate adjustments, the paid version may be worth it. The free version works wonderfully for what it does.
