I have a growing number of .wma and .wav files that could use some editing. They are voice only, so they don't need to be very high quality, but they still need to sound like something reasonable. 1) I would like to be able to trim out little pieces, like a cough, a stutter, a pause, etc. 2) I would like the resultant files to not be very big. Most of them are in the neighborhood of an hour long, or a little less. The .wma files run about 7 or 8 Mb and the sound is quite acceptable. The .wav files are roughly ten times that size, but for simple voice, there is no discernable difference. I would like to make those .wav files into .wma files about the size of the ones I have. I tried various ways of converting the .wav files to .wma. In most cases, the resulting files were about 50 or 60 mb. Way bigger than equivalent-length .wma files. I found one program that converts them and makes small files, but the results were worse than bad. Stuttering, disjointed and almost incomprehensible. I tried a few different parameters and even with the highest quality (which made files of about 30 mb, way too big), they were dismal. Needless to say, I removed the program from my computer. (It was a thing that lets you test the program by converting half of a .wav file, before you buy it. I wasn't going to pay to have such an awful sound.) I am willing to pay a reasonable amount (say in the $20 to $40 range), but there are so many of them, and my experience so far has been so disappointing, that I thought I might find out if anyone here has experience with this kind of thing and can recommend a program that will do what I want. I don't need a high-quality sound studio like one might use to work with music. Any suggestions?
