Free MP3 Cutter Joiner: audio clipping and volume adjustment
Narrow focus and lightweight application
Free MP3 Cutter Joiner is not intended to be a full-featured audio editing application. Its feature set is very limited by design, with the developers choosing to focus on doing a few things well rather than a lot of things. By narrowing the focus of the app to just cutting and joining audio and volume adjustment, they have managed to make it a very small and lightweight application.
Easy to use but limited support
Another benefit from the narrow focus of the app is that it is very easy to use since there are not many controls to get to grips with. Unfortunately, it has very limited support when it comes to file types, with only MP3 and WAV being supported. For other common file types like WMA and AAC, a different application will be required. There are also no additional audio editing features, such as effects.
If you just need an application to adjust the volume of a WAV or MP3 file, or to cut or join the file, this application is a fast, simple, lightweight solution. If you need other features, you may prefer something like Audacity, which can provide the same functionality but also comes with many additional features.
Should you download it?
If you only need to adjust volume or cut and join your audio files, and those files are either MP3 or WMA, then this app is perfect. Anything beyond that and you would likely need additional apps like DFX Audio Enhancer to supplement it.
