Cut, edit or mix music and songs online for free

Want to create a ringtone from your favorite song? Cut your song online. Want to edit some effects? You can edit music online. Want to mix songs for a special mashup or put a different beat on them? You can do it all online and for free.

We are going to look at some sites that will help us do this.

We will divide the sites into two categories:

  • Easy audio editing – allows us to do basic editing like cuts, light blending, fades and fades.
  • More complete sound editing – capable of complex editing, such as multi-track, adding effects or instruments, accepting MIDI input, recording. Everything you’d expect from an audio editing program like Audacity. If you haven’t tried Audacity, a free, full-featured audio editing program, you need to check it out.

We’ve also created a short video on our YouTube channel that talks about some of the best options, so check that out as well.

Easy sound editors online

BearAudio

BearAudio is a free online MP3 cutter, but offers several editing tools. The interface is easy to use and understand. It’s a fast loading site and processed files fairly quickly in our testing.

At the top of the ad-supported site are links to some other bearAudio tools, such as a voice recorder and an audio converter.

features:

  • record.
  • Sound library – a small library of sound effects.
  • Supports stereo.
  • Cut out.
  • Fade in and fade out.
  • Change the volume of the section.
  • Convert WAV to MP3.

AudioTrimmer

He does what he says. It cuts the sound. Use AudioTrimmer for those really quick cuts you might need on the go. If you can click and drag, you can edit with this.

This is an ad-supported site and the maximum file size that can be uploaded is 100MB. Similar to BearAudio, there are links at the top of the site to other targeted tools, such as an MP3 converter, tempo changer, volume booster, audio reverser, and a small free music section that you can download for free.

features

  • Very easy to use.
  • Fade in and fade out.
  • Output to MP3 or M4R for iPhone.
  • Select by dragging markers or typing timestamps.

MP3Cut

Single-function audio editing should be popular. MP3Cut is another online tool for easy audio cutting and trimming. It supports almost any audio format you can think of – MP3 3G2, AIFF, AVI… about 300 formats. This includes obscure formats such as those used by Bethesda or even Commodore 64 games.

Again, at the top of the site are links to their other one-off tools, such as an audio joiner, converter, voice recorder, and even a few video tools.

features

  • Supports more than 300 file formats.
  • Drag and drop loading.
  • Select a file from your local computer, Google Drive, or Dropbox.
  • Fade in and fade out.
  • Create ringtones for iPhone.

Apowersoft Free Online Audio Editor

Apowersoft has the same features as the tools we talked about, but works a little differently when you want to edit music online. There is a launcher that needs to be installed the first time you use it.

This is good, because then the audio editor opens in a separate window without cluttering up toolbars and browser tabs. You can also download the desktop version.

features

  • Segment selection with millisecond precision.
  • Add audio.
  • Mixing of sound files.
  • Cut and trim.
  • Fade in and fade out.
  • Export to MP3, AAC, OGG, WMA, WAV or FLAC.
  • Export in high, standard, or low quality to control file size.

Clideo

Clideo is another solid choice for a free, easy-to-use online audio cutter. Its difference from the others is that after we have loaded the audio for work, it opens in the editing studio in a full window. Click and drag tabs to select audio. If you know the exact start and finish times, enter them for accuracy.

Choose one of the 15 most popular audio file formats and upload your ringtone or clip. If there’s anything else you need to do, select one of Clideo’s other tools at the top of the site.

features

  • Clean and simple user interface.
  • Save files in one of the 15 most popular audio file formats.
  • Fade in and fade out.
  • Precise time input with millisecond accuracy for the start and end of the segment.

WubMachine

Now something completely different! WubMachine lets you “turn any music into dubstep, drum and bass, etc” with one click. Download or drag a song. You can even search SoundCloud and download the song from there.

Choose from five styles, two sounds, two speeds or even a Jingle Bell instrument for holiday cheer. WubMachine automatically applies it to the song. Then upload the MP3 or share it directly on SoundCloud. Or press Again button to go back and add a different style, sound or speed to the song. WubMachine seems more of a fun tool than a serious online music editor.

features

  • SoundCloud integration.
  • 5 styles – trap, dubstep, swing, electrohouse, drum and bass.
  • 2 sounds – a drum and a bell.
  • 2 speeds – double time and half time.
