I feel like maybe I have missed something with Free MP3 Cutter Joiner. It feels like two separate programs that have been joined by an unpleasant interface which tries its best to confuse. It does what it claims, but poorly at best.

Kind of cutting

After loading Free MP3 Cutter Joiner, you are met with the "Cutter" side of the program. The interface is a mishmash of icons stolen from other programs that seem to have been compressed and then enlarged until they are so distorted and ugly that they are almost hard to look at.

Multiple functions are hidden under these icons, and it is only by referring to the poorly translated help menu on the developer's website that it is possible to work out how to make use of this simplistic tool.

To really rub salt into the wound, the waveform at the center of the page is a fixed image that is in no way related to the audio file you have loaded - selecting an audio file from the browse function (drag and drop doesn't work despite what it may look like), makes no difference.

Janky joining

When you are done with the painstaking task of slicing up whatever audio you have dropped into the Cutter, you can head over to the "Joiner". This is a little more user friendly, but only because if offers even less in the way of functionality.

After picking your files from the search function and ordering them in the Joiner, a single press of the start button will link everything in the list into a single MP3. It offers no editing tools, and the cuts between each piece of audio is more than a little abrupt - but it at least works relatively painlessly.

Failed features

Lacking in function, ugly, and hard to use, Free MP3 Cutter Joiner has a very specific use. But given that Audacity is also free and offers a full suite of more user-friendly audio tools, I don't know why you wouldn’t choose that instead.

Cut and join MP3 files easily

Free MP3 Cutter Joiner is an easy way to cut big audio files. Free MP3 Cutter Joiner enables you to merge multiple files or parts of multiple files into one big file and cut/join MP3's without losing quality. You can preview files that you've cut and accuracy of cutting is to within one millisecond - ideal for making your own mobile ringtones.

Top-notch production: All MP3 files that we created with Free MP3 Cutter Joiner had the same quality as the original file. Producing new files was very fast, with most MP3s only taking less than 30 seconds to create.

Pleasant design: You will enjoy the plain, comfortable design of this program. There are only a handful of objects in the program window, which we found to be a streamlining aspect of Free MP3 Cutter Joiner.
