I need to chop off the first few seconds of over 100 MP3 files. How can I do this quickly (batch edit ) with (preferably) freeware? I have Audacity, and also Nero's packaged audio editor.

Thx for an info you can provide!

I don't use Audacity, so I don't know if it will do exactly what you want, but it does have batch processing capability.

You might want to consider a special-purpose MP3 editor that can directly (losslessly) edit MP3s. As you may already know, most audio editors have to decode the MP3 before editing and re-encode it before saving. This takes time and it can affect audio quality. A couple of lossless MP3 editors that I know of are mp3DirectCut (FREE!!!) and MP3 Surgeon ($30 USD). MP3 Surgeon also has a "batch mode". (I've never used either of these programs... I'm just aware of them...)
