Trim your Music Files with QuickTime X
We have discussed in the past, some of QuickTime X’s hidden talents. Using a yellow slider control (iPhone Movie Editing anyone?), you can trim audio files from directly inside of QuickTime Player. The next time you need to MacGuyver yourself a ringtone, try this simple process:
Open an audio file in Quicktime X (X just means version 10).
- Open an Audio file using QuickTime Player.
- Select the Edit Menu -> Trim…
- Adjust the yellow trim area as desired.
- Click on the yellow “trim” button in the upper right hand corner of the window.
These convenient and simple features are always a welcomed addition to any media player. When that media player is part of the Operating System, it’s even better!
