    go to the export menu and choose "audio as <insert format here>" (cant remember what the options are. if it exports as aiff, just open the file in itunes and convert to mp3.

    What I like to use to trim down audio files as well as apply basic effects is a freeware called Audacity found at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/mac

    Hope this helps

    you can trim the clip like you normally would before exporting it, or you can use sound studio (included with all non-power machines ie imac, etc.) in addition you can set start and end points in itunes, but i dont know if that would help.
