    I'm running iTunes 10.1.1 and have sync'd some voice memos from my iPhone.

    My question is how can I export them to a file format so I can use an audio editor to divide the memo up (get rid of useless parts)?

    I cannot even find a way to export the memo. Is that even possible?

    Anyone know of a simple freeware editor to edit a sound file?

    In case others are interested....

    I'm not sure why you think you should export your memos, exactly, because if you've synced them they should exist in your iTunes Media/Voice Memos folder. iTunes, however, is not designed as a conversion tool, so you need to open them in a sound editing programme.

    I record about 5 memos a day and always edit them with Audacity.

    It's easy to learn, and you can use it to layer/splice/clip other sound formats as well. To my knowledge it's compatible with MP3, WAV, AIFF, and OGG files and can be used to record live audio and convert analog files (like tapes). Likely it has other features as well.

    In sum, it's got what you need, has a great reputation and is free. Enjoy!
