    Hey all,

    I have been looking for a program that allows you to cut certain parts of mp3 files then save them as a seperate mp3 files. There's a program called (Power mp3 cutter) but it only works on Pc, is there any way that i can install it on mac, or are there any similar programs that run on mac?

    Please help!!

    Audacity, its a little more advanced but free and not that hard to use.

    GarageBand.

    That is exactly what it is designed for.

    only thing bad about garage band from my knowledge is it eats some good HD space installed, even without the extra.

    Go with audacity. As simple as highlighting the part of the song you want cut, then pressing delete

    I don't think that's "exactly" what it was designed for. GarageBand is about as basic and low-power as they come.

    Not exactly, GarageBand can be very flexible and powerful if used correctly. Sure it's not exactly Logic or PT, but it could be argued that you're likely to get a better sound out of a mix with it than a basic Cubase install.

    Of course that is what it is designed for!

    GarageBand's two primary functions are to create music and podcasts.

    I certainly would say editing an mp3 and saving it as a new would fall into the create music category.

    You don't need a super duper program to simply cut and edit an mp3.

    And unless you are literally down to the point where every megabyte counts, you needn't worry about the space GarageBand takes you; you'll be fine.
