    I need a program for my Mac that can cut out certain parts in an audio file. I have an audio file that has mistakes, and I want to cut those out. What program can I use to do that?

    I second Audacity. I've been using it for years and it's very versatile. Should do what you're looking to do with little effort.

    I've been using Aimersoft Video Converter... does that and more for audio and video files. Just select the portion of the media that you want to cut out (or keep) and it does the rest. Also converts between media types and formats quickly and easily. I got it as part of one of the Mac software bundle offers several years ago, and it's not failed me yet.

    Audacity's my choice. I've been using it for many years on both PC's and Macs

    Audacity's awesome for audio editing, but be aware that it cannot edit MP3 and other compressed audio without introducing additional loss. If you want lossless editing of MP3 / M4A / etc, check out Fission. Not free, but does the job well.

    Audacity can do it somewhat easily.

    EDIT--retracted second sentence because I can't find the commands to do it. I know I used to do it through GarageBand, but now? UGH

    I like Sound Studio. Always had good results.
