With Kapwing's online audio trimmer you can easily shorten the length of an MP3. This free tool can be used on any iPhone, Android, Tablet or PC with a browser so you can skip downloading software. Podcasters can create snippets of upcoming episodes to share on social media and singers can preview a song online before releasing the full version. In a few clicks, you can also trim and cut your audio to make ringtones, songs, sound effects and more!
Get started by uploading an MP3, WAV file from your device or paste a link.
Drag the ends of the layer from left to right to change when the audio begins and ends. For finer adjustments, click timing and use the up and down arrow keys to select a start and end time. To trim audio from a video, right-click and select detach audio to begin editing.
When you’re finished, click the dropdown arrow by export video, then click export as MP3 to begin processing your audio.
Trimming audio is an important part of any content creator's workflow. You may need to trim an mp3 file in order to cut out a sound effect, or remove parts of the audio that you do not want in your final output. Traditionally, music makers would have to download heavyweight software to accomplish the audio trimming, but with Kapwing, this process is easy, online, and takes only a few clicks.
Cut or trim audio files without downloading an app or installing a heavy software like Audacity and Garageband. Kapwing supports many audio file types including MP3, WAV, MP4, and more. Start by uploading the audio file that you'd like to trim or paste a link to an audio or video file online, from a source like YouTube or TikTok. Once the audio file is loaded into Kapwing, use the sliders or the timeline to change the start and end time, make cuts, or shorten your audio. Split audio into different sections and remove the middle part of the audio, if that's what you need.
This is an excellent audio trimmer to use when trimming longer songs into a particular small soundbite or when you’re trimming podcasts down to the highlights you want to save for safe keeping.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
