Ahem… well… there ain’t one. Sorryh folks. Well, at least I could not find any. Setting up audacity with a ton of plugins to make it export WAV files which you can then edit and then re-encode with lame back into MP3 is not my idea of an easy-to-use editing tool…

So… how can we edit MP3’s under linux? Easy – install wine and use mp3DirectCut! Works like a charm 🙂

Look at this screenshot:

You got all you need in this tool, really – start point, end point, fade out. And – it’s free!

It IS a shame though, that there isn’t a nice mp3 gui editor for Linux… maybe I ought to write one 😉

    NOTE: You might need to add mpglib.dll to the mp3DirectCut installation directory (under wine’s “Program Files/mp3DirectCut”). Just google it there’s many archives online where you can get this dll, eg at http://www.free-codecs.com/1by1_download.htm.

    Oh, and also there might be some messages about some XML-related lib missing during installation – you can ignore those, the program works just fine after that despite these warnings.

    Am I missing something?
    Running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Audacity saves files to mp3. Why re-encode?
