freerip software converts .wav files to .mp3 files give to mr liberal http://www.mgshareware.com this is the file in mime format. its version 2. freerip.txt mr liberal says also see http://www.winamp.com i dont think it can be used to create or edit mp3 files http://www.shoutcast.com - it looks like a list of internet radio shows, not a tool to edit mp3 files. i also remember http://www.jukebox.com as a mp3 file editor. check it out. the url may be wrong also ask erni for a good mp3 editor. with his radio show http://www.ernesthancock.com he may be using stuff like that. joanas at j1o2n3a4s5@[calliente]mail.com says cool edit 2000 (its free) and cool edit pro (it costs bucks) can be used to edit sound files and merge them together. their web site is http://www.syntrillium.com i didnt know this but he says that cool edit has filters that will allow you to modulate your voice. wow i can sound just like my sister on TV and have a modulated voice. he also said that winamp is just a play back product. winamp does not allow you to edit audio files.
