How to cut audio

Sometimes the full song is just too long. Picture it: an amazing new song is playing on the radio or you hear it in passing while scrolling around online. You suddenly realize that you just have to have a part of it as your ringtone for that one person or client who requires special attention.

But who has time to learn how to use some complicated software? And how do you cut a song anyway? Cropping music is super easy and fast with the online and free tool by Clideo. Let’s check it out!

  1. How to upload a file

    Open the Audio Cutter by Clideo. You can upload an audio file to trim music via one of the following options: select from a computer, phone, Google Drive or Dropbox.

    Upload a song you want to cut

    You select your file or past in the URL and voila – it’s already on it. Your editing journey has begun.

  2. Cut your music online

    Once your file is uploaded, it’s time to get down to business and crop that audio! Here you can very easily toggle times to start and end as you wish, by hovering over each “start” and “end” indicator and moving those dividers around.

    Or, you can type in the period you want. Either method gets your selection to where it needs to be.

    Trim your audio by moving the markers

    Next you need to decide if you’d like the selected part to be extracted or deleted. And then check the Fade in/out or Crossfade boxes.

    You can also convert the audio to whichever format works best for you. Although MP3 is the most popular choice for obvious ringtone reasons, there are many other formats to consider as well.

    Change the format of your cut song

    Select “Cut” and your audio file is in the processing home stretch!

  3. Download the trimmed audio

    After that you’re not tied to the audio you’ve selected. You can listen to it and may even realize you want to capture a different selection entirely instead. Then go “Back to edit” some more if you’re not happy with it.

    When you’re happy with how it sounds, you’re ready to download to your device or a cloud storage account.
