How To Use mp3DirectCut – A Standalone MP3 Cutter To Cut MP3

mp3DirectCut is a tiny, standalone freeware, a “MP3 cutter” that you could use to cut a MP3 file into pieces (for fun?). You may use this free MP3 cutter program to cut a portion of the most sensational rhythm of song in MP3 format for mobile phone ringtone.

Certainly, mp3DirectCut is in my standalone program list and kept in my pocket almost every day! (Pocket? It’s the 8GB thumb drive – tiny size in physical measurement but big in storage capacity!).

First, download the freeware from Martin Pesch’s website, or directly download the official self-extractable file (MD5 checksum 9104b7fe19005bda2ffdb86c092412e4) or download the zipped mp3DirectCut (file “installed” by the self-extractable file; MD5 checksum 9f5e812833552dd705b50ddcd763f07d).

After clicking the Set Begin button, click the Play button to continue playback and click Stop button when you expect it to stop. As usual, repeat the “adjust and play” step to precise “end” your favourite rhythm. Once you are happy with the “end” time, click Set End button.

mp3DirectCut - save the selection to mp3 formatFinally, the Selection text-box (see next screenshot; highlighted) contains the portion of rhythm that you’ve defined by clicking “Set Begin” and “Set End” button. To cut, copy, or save this portion (for ringtone), simply click Save Selection from File menu (or just press CTRL+E keyboard shortcut).

(The Save Selection will save the “cut” portion into MP3 format. If your mobile phone supports MP3 ringtone, just transfer the file to cell phone. Otherwise, get a converter to convert the MP3 to ringtone format supported by the phone.)

But your tutorial, by selecting the start point and end point, after stopping at the required point needs special mention idea to make it easy. Thanks
