What do you do when you want a trending song as your phone's ringtone? Or for that matter, want to create a mashup of your favorite ones? Yeah, the internet has millions of songs. But I would call it nothing short of a miracle if you were to find a clipping of a song/mashup just the way you want it.
Downloading software and learning its controls can be a chore. So why not try an online tool that lets you do it with minimal effort?
In this post today, we will be talking about free online MP3 cutters and editors to make ringtones and mashups. What's more, some of these tools also offer other editing features as well.
The best thing here is that you can start editing audio without downloading any additional software.
Let's check them out.

audioTrimmer is one of the simplest audio file cutter out there suppoting multiple file formats such as MP3, OGG, 3GPP, FLAC, WAV, and more. The interface is quite straightforward.
To trim a song, all you have to do is drag the handles to select the portions of a song. Once you are satisfied with your selection, hit the Play button. audioTrimmer also lets you adjust the volume levels and add the Fade In/Out effect before you download the edited clip.
Up next, we have Toolur MP3 Cutter. Similar to audioTrimmer, it has an uncomplicated interface and is mainly designed for trimming offline audio tracks.
Toolur doesn't have dedicated handles to adjust the Begin and End time. Instead, you'd have to scrub through the song and use the Current Position button. Compared to manually entering the specific time, this is an easy and practical way to trim a song.
Also, the set of + and - buttons let you fine-tune the start and end points.
Another point where it differs from audioTrimmer is that you can manually enter a precise Fade in and Fade out time. So, if you are crafting a ringtone and don't want the music to jolt you when a call comes through, this tool is your go-to option.
Other than the above, Toolur lets you preview the tune before you hit the Cut Now button. What's more, you can also rip audio from videos as well. You can download your trimmed tunes in MP3, AMR, WAV, and M4R formats.
Ringtone Cutter is an excellent option if you have a bunch of audio tracks to trim. This tool lets you upload up to 20 files at a time. Though there are no advanced filters, it has the option of repeat/loop.
It's an extremely easy-to-use tool. You can quickly switch between the uploaded files by clicking on the song thumbnails. However, save the track before you switch.
My only gripe is that there's no option to add Fade In/Out effect. So, you may want to set the volume a little low if you are looking to create a ringtone. Just like audioTrimmer, you can download the edited songs in MP3 or M4R formats only.
Audio Joiner is a notch above Ringtone Cutter and does what its name implies — joins multiple tracks. But wait, that's not all. This cool tool can also cut and trim audio tracks.
The beauty of Audio Joiner is that there's no upload limit. We tried uploading 70 songs and guess what, it worked like a charm.
The interface and functionality are pretty painless. Just upload the songs, and get ready to join or slice them.
Typical of any audio editor, you can interchange the position of the tracks and choose the filters. By default, Audio Joiner has three filters — Crossfade, Fade in, and Fade into Silence. Or if you want, you can choose not to have any change in the volume levels.
If you ask me, Audio Joiner should be your go-to destination if you love creating mashups.
If you are a bit serious about audio editing and would like to avoid adding a third-party editor to your PC, Soundation is your salvation. Ok, I suppose I went a bit far over here, but yeah, it's a superb tool if you want to indulge in some serious audio editing.
Compared to the tools mentioned earlier, Soundation is a bit complex, and you may need to spend some time on it to understand the interface. But once you figure that out, trimming and merging audios will be a walk in the park.
What's more, it also houses a vast media library. You can either use the ones from its repository or import your own tracks.
Once you master the interface, using this app will be easy-peasy. Just select the tracks. Drag and drop them in the workspace area and off you go. Also, you can cut out individual portions from the tracks and color-code them to make it easy for you to edit.
With these online MP3 cutters and editors, not only can you make ringtones quickly but also merge your favorite songs. Of course, these online tools are not as advanced as their offline counterparts. However, they are ideal for quick jobs or converting file formats.
So instead of wrapping your head around the desktop apps or the one on your phone, give these online free MP3 cutters and editors a shot. Also, if you have been using a different one, do share it with us.
