I’m working with mp3 loops and need to edit them. However, when I open an mp3 make the neccessary edits to the beginning and ending of a file for it to loop correctly and then save it, the resulting mp3 has extra space at the top and tail.
This leads me to believe that wavelab 7 is converting an mp3 into pcm audio, allowing me to edit it and then re-encoding it back to mp3 which then adds the extra mp3 frames to the top and tail that I just removed.
Is there anyway to edit an mp3 and save it directly with Wavelab 7 without having Wavelab convert the files but keeping them as mp3’s throughout the process?
This is a pretty common dilemma nowadays for editing audio for flash or ios/android apps.
