    I have an MP3 of a concert and I want to trim it down to only one song, what free app can I use to do this.

    Thanks

    Garage Band will work. Just select the part you don't want and delete it.

    "Audacity" will work as well and it really is free

    you could do this using iTunes as well:

    File > Get Info
    Options
    Choose Start and Stop time for the track portion you want
    OK
    Advanced > Convert to MP3 (or AAC or whatever you want)

    iTunes will convert the selected portion into a separate track.
