Flac, wav, mp3 editor?

I haven't delved into editing my flac, mp3, etc. collection. Can you pros tell me what you use please? What's the best freeware/shareware that you know of? I'm looking to join 2 or more wav files to make a medley for a karaoke song.

I thank you for your time.

Percy

Re: Flac, wav, mp3 editor?

I've never found any freeware/shareware that really work great. I guess you get what you pay for.

I'm pretty sure you need to convert the FLAC to WAV prior to editing the file. I'm unaware of any flac editing program but they may exist.

I have Pro Tools and I'm pleased with all it can do.

audacity.sourceforge.net

really great prog for pc/mac

be sure to go to the preferences to set the export to what you want it to be (normally wav 16bit/44.1kHz)

Re: Flac, wav, mp3 editor?

To join 2 or more .wav files into one big .wav file, just use shntool. It will allow you to fix a lot of problems with .wav files. It actually fixes .wav's, not .shn's, the name is a bit of a misnomer. If you have Trader's Little Helper installed, you don't have to download it. You can get it here for free: http://www.etree.org/shnutils/shntool/ Get the Win32 version where is says "where can I get it?" Unzip the file, and drop the shntool.exe file in your C:\WINDOWS folder. It is a command line program, so you have to use the command prompt (start > all programs > accessories > command prompt). It is easier if you have the folder with the .wav's you want to analyze and fix on your C:\ drive so you don't have to do lots of typing. I don't think the folder can have any spaces in it. If it is the Rolling Stones May 15, 1974 16 bit SBD for example, rename it to rs1974-05-15.sbd.flac16 Make sure the command prompt says 'C:\' You may have to change it by typing 'cd C:\' Then type 'shntool join rs1974-05-15.sbd.flac16/*.wav' All your individual .wav files will join together into one big one, in alphabetical order. The joined.wav file wil be output to your C:\ root drive.
