    I'm a 'Phone a Friend' as far a couple of my friends are concerned when computer problems arise - and I've had another request which yet again I can't answer !!

    This friend wants to edit a large WMA audio file so that he can get the parts he really wants, and get rid of the rest. I googled and found a free editor that does WMA files called 'Free Audio Editor', but he can't get it to work for what he wants. One option is to get his file and the program and see if I can do it - the alternative is for me to "Ask the Audience" and see if someone here knows an idiot proof WMA editting program. I did advise him that he might be better to decompress the WMA file, but it would be more within his capabiity if only one step was involved.

    Any help please guys!

    Many thanks

    Rob

    Well, the only one I use isn't free but it is easy to use and a worthwhile cost. AVS4YOUŽ has a subscription fee that entitles you to use of ALL their software and updates as well. I subscribed a long time ago and continue to use a few of their programs on a regular basis. Here's a clip of an audio file which uses "normal" highlight-cut-copy-paste techniques. I've highlighted (gray) a small spot in the middle of this WMA sample:

    See Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder. With the download at Audacity: Windows and the plugins/libaries list further down the page you can now import WMA files in Audacity.

    If you have Nero for CD burning there is a good audio editor included (sometimes).

    cheers, Paul
