wmaSnip is an audio file editor for Windows XP with Windows Media Player, designed to allow the easy identification and extraction of sections of audio, referred to in wmaSnip as segments. A segment may be as small as a single note in a song, or as large as a complete track in, for example, a concert or a vinyl LP recording. Editing is non-destructive, i.e. the audio content of the original file is not affected, any extracted segments being written to new files. Segments can be defined manually (by moving start and end markers in a graphical representation of the source audio). For large files, containing multiple tracks, wmaSnip can automatically define segments using silence detection; wmaSnip also connects to the online music metadata service at MusicBrainz.org, and can use its data to locate tracks within long recordings and define these as segments.
