How to cut an audio with WaveShop?

WaveShop supports copy/cut/paste/insert/delete easily using keyboard shortcuts. Follow these steps to cut music and other audio files:

  • First, open the audio file you want to cut by going to File => Open or pressing the Ctrl+O keys on the keyboard, and navigate to the file location. The result should be similar to the image below.

  • Then select the part of the audio you want to cut. For this you can use three methods:

    • Move the mouse pointer to the starting location, press and hold the left mouse button while dragging the cursor to the end location.
    • Move the mouse pointer to the starting location, right-click, select Start Selection, then place the mouse on the end location, click the right mouse button and select End Selection.
    • The last method is to type the start and end timings at the specified locations, as shown in the image below.

  • After that, you can go ahead and cut Ctrl+X or copy Ctrl+C the selected part of the original audio file.
  • Now that you have the selected part of the audio in the clipboard, you can create a new audio file by going to File => New or by pressing Ctrl+N and exceeding the audio by clicking Ctrl+V.

  • The above steps can be repeated as many times as necessary, then finally save the file you created by pressing Ctrl+S.
