    I used a program on Windows ... cough .. called SoundForge to edit my home produced Farts and Burps CD a few years ago. It was a bit OTT for my needs. But now I am Mac Friendly - I now want a pretty basic sound editing program that I can chop my original long MP3 file into the 90 fart size segments ... to convert to ringtones.

    Is there a free/cheap Mac program I could use?

    I had a dabble with GarageBand but its a bit like using a badly designed sledgehammer to crack a nut ... I just want summat easy and simple to crop sounds and export them to AAC or MP3 kinda thingies.

    Cheers y'all!:D

    Try Audacity. It's free and supports VST plugins too

    I would recommend Audacity, but it's a pain in the ass to use.

    Thanks Loge

    this looks pretty good for the equivalent of about fourteen British quids!

    I actually am intending chopping up and utilising sounds off my Farts and Burps CD to convert to ringtone format so I presume this would do it?

    Just go with Audacity, you won't regret it. But if you do regret it, it cost you nothing :D
