if I were to edit a sound file, i would get an mp3 to wav converter. convert the file, and then use a wav file editor. those are easier to find if an mp3 editor even exists. the best wav file editor I have found is included with NERO. then you can just convert the files back to mp3 format.
Try Audacity. It's a freeware.
You can record sounds, play sounds, import and export WAV, AIFF, and MP3 files, and more. Use it to edit your sounds using Cut, Copy and Paste (with unlimited Undo), mix tracks together, or apply effects to your recordings. Built-in effects include Bass Boost, Wahwah, and Noise Removal, and it also supports VST plug-in effects.
What you have there is someone who knows what to do with Techno CD's.
The file should also include a .cue file.
You will then need a plugin for Winamp that will read the cue file and the accompanying mp3 so it knows where one track starts and ends.
Why do they do this?
No matter what you do, techno cd's that are continuous tracks will not blend into the next song properly due to a property of mp3.
If you know what a wave file looks like, you should know that it is a wave (heh) sorta like ones u'd see when u graph a sin, cos or tan equation. They WILL NEVER connect exactly when you rip them as individual tracks and thus will create a slight pop or something to that effect when it goes to the next song.
If you want to cut these tracks properly, hunt down the cue file and use Exact Audio Copy to cut it into seperate mp3's rather than editing the song yourself.
Like the post above, Goldwave is great!! It's very simple to use, but has most common features for simple editing. If u r seriously getting into music creation/editing, soundforge is the best, quite expensive tho.
I haven't seen a MP3 editor (good one) which has a turntable. You might need 2 softwares to do both the jobs.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
