Best Way to Create 30s Previews?
Hi guys,

Just wanted to know if there are any free downloadable software capable of editing music. It would be nice if it could do the conversion to mp3 and allow me to set it, if not I can use LAME for encoding at a lower rate. Question: I am using Audio Grabber with an older version of LAME 3.96, would it allow me to convert 30 sec sample? 

I only need a 30 sec sample of music preview for downloading purposes.

Thanks

You would have better luck searching for mp3cut.

Anyway, you find a download link at the project page: http://freshmeat.net/projects/mp3cut/

If you just want to create 30 second samples of tracks in MP3 format foobar would be a good option.  You can highlight all the tracks and then choose "Convert" > "Generate previews".  You can then select the length in seconds (default to 30s I believe) or a percentage of the track.

If your sources are MP3 then perhaps an MP3 splitter may be better, but if you only want low quality previews then transcoding from the lossy MP3 in foobar may be OK anyway.
I'm on a horse.

mpTrim (or mp3Trim) makes previews fast. However you need to buy it to get the batch function, but it generates previews really fast (btw, it overwrites the file, so beware to keep the original)
Can't wait for a HD-AAC encoder :P
