Although the site denotes that it’s a dedicated MP3 cutter site, other AV tools are available as well – audio converter, audio joiner, video converter and video recorder, among others.
You may drag and drop your file to the cutter interface. Otherwise, you could import your MP3 file from your Dropbox, or Google Drive, or provide a link to your audio.
Then go on to mark the start and end points of the portion you wish to cut. Before proceeding with the cutting, you may apply fade-in and fade-out effects if you so desire.
Done, you may save your output file in the following formats: MP3, M4A, M4R (ringtone for iPhone), WAV, and FLAC.
Then you may proceed to hit the Cut button and the desired portion of your clip will be downloaded.
MP3Cut is also an online MP3 cutter and joiner where you can cut and merge songs online.
If you wish to cut portions of multiple clips and join them, you can do it all here.

With Audio Trimmer, you can’t drag and drop your MP3 files for cutting. You would have to manually upload it from your hard disk.
Once uploaded the audio waveform will be displayed.
You may preview the clip by hitting the green Play button.
Then move the slider to the start and end points. Before cropping the audio you can apply the fade effect – fade in or fade out or both.
You can only output in two audio formats – MP3 and M4R (iPhone ringtone) – though.
Input formats, however, range from WAV, OGG, WMA, and even 3GPP, among others.
Audio Trimmer doesn’t provide the facility to join your MP3 audio clips. However, it comes with an audio reverser and tempo changer in case you need these tools.
