    I am looking for some free mp3 editing software. I want to break up an mp3 into smaller sections so i can add one section to my mobile phone as a ringtone. Anyone know a good editor that works with XP.

    Regards,

    This program is VERY good, and easy to use.

    Unfortunately it is not free, but you do get a free 14 day trial so you can use it for your needs before the trial runs out.

    Highlight a track, then choose File>Get Info. In the Options tab you can specify the start and stop time of the section you want. Click OK. Then choose Advanced>Convert selection to... (this will be set to whatever your Preferences, Importing tab setting is set to ie, MP3, AAC, AIFF, Apple Lossless, WAV etc at whatever bit rate - so you can specify a really low bitrate mp3 say, for a mobile phone). iTunes converts the track to the start and stop times, and import preferences you wanted. Job done.

    You end up with both the original untouched track, and the converted section.

    google search for a free program called audacity.

    it lets you chop up sound files and edit them, also add effects, noise reduction, etc. very good, and its free!
