Lightweight linux audio trimming, editing


i have Debian 6.x and Gnome desktop.

Looking for some lightweight app to trim and crop mp3, wma or similar files. I already have ffmpeg installed.

I tried to load 29Mb file to Audacitty and it was frozing whole day untill i turned off PC.

Some simple tool, even command line, would be good to be able to trim also inside of file, not only start, end.

Well there is sox, for editing sound in the shell.

Also, you might look at Sweep, a GUI editor:

I have loaded files far larger than 29mb into Audacity, so I wonder if there is another issue there.
