Introduction

    Perhaps you want to edit a podcast or conference call or a song you've just recorded. Well then I highly recommend using My Sound Editor Free Edition. It is the visual multifunctional digital audio editing software for Windows. With a given audio data, it can perform many different editing operations such as Cut, Copy, Paste, Trim, Delete, etc.

Step 1. Input an Audio File

    Launch My Sound Editor Free Edition. Click "Open" to activate a browser window, in which you can select an audio file from your computer. Then, click "Open" to input it to the program.

Step 2. Create a Selection

    Select the part of the waveform you want to edit. There are 4 ways to create a selection: click anywhere of the waveform as a starting point and use hotkey like Shift+Home, Shift+End or Ctrl+A to select from start/end or all; click the left button and drag along with the waveform to the place you want to select; specify the beginner & end of the session by moving the sliders below the waveform window; input the start, end or length of time to choose specified region.

Step 3. Edit Selected Region

    Now click "Edit" tab to edit the selection by clicking the buttons of cut, copy, paste, crop, delete and more. You can use unlimited Undo & Redo to restore some wrong operations made during the editing.
