How to cut or split MP3 audio files on Windows with Free MP3 Cutter [Tip]

free mp3 cutter [1]I was looking for a simple free MP3 file custom cutter, I found many; however, to my surprise, many of them are buggy. For example, MP3 Cutter Plus 1.0 [2] produces an MP3 output that can be played by VLC media player but cannot be played by Windows Media Player! It looks like to me that Free MP3 Cutter does a nice job as far as cutting an MP3 file is concerned.

In a few clicks, one can select a part of a song (or audiobook, or any MP3 audio file),  and save the selection in a separate MP3 file. This is a real MP3 cutter, and not an MP3 splitter that allows you to split files either by custom bytes or by number of files. It takes ~ 10 MB of RAM when idle.


  • Simple utility
  • User-friendly interface
  • Works very fast
  • Allows you to play the desired piece before saving
  • Apparently, saves the file without re-encoding


  • Cutting the piece properly is not perfect, needs adjustment

Unless I get to see a perfect MP3 cutter, this is a keeper for me. It does exactly what it is supposed to do; and therefore, I give it two thumbs up.
