Mike Rhodin on social software in the enterprise

by Volker Weber

Last week there was a Lotus Executive Panel (audio replay here) which was designed to give a midyear update on the progress Lotus is making on the Lotusphere announcements. Nothing surprising, but some good statements. I particularly liked Mike Rhodin's statement on social software in the enterprise:

The sound quality is very bad at only 16 kb/s, so in order to crop the audio to this quote, I needed an editor which does not encode the file again, losing even more quality. The best one I could find was not the ubiquitous Audacity but MP3 Trimmer. It gives you a very nice way to set the in and out point and then saves the file without re-encoding:

MP3 Trimmer


May I take the opportunity then to plug the wonderful Amadeus sound editing software by Martin Hairer, which I have been using for most audio purposes for a good few years now.

Admittedly you have to pay a little bit of money for it, but I'm not sure there is a better, simple audio editor at any price.

I have used MP3 Trimmer for a while now for all my simple needs, and have found it to work very well.

BTW: I am looking for a MAC-tool to cut / merge / manipulate MP3 files like the PC software 'MP3 Direct Cut' without re(en)coding. Any hints?
