Conclusion

Looking at the software and the online tools, one would notice that there are certain limitations and restrictions imposed on each one of them. While this might be deliberate, none of them matches up to UniConverter in terms of functionality, features and tools, and conversion, compression, and merging speed. UniConverter also possesses a media player that can play virtually all media formats, either video or audio. Also, some of the steps we may have summarized for ease of access, are way more complicated than they look, and deviating from any of the steps might ruin your MP3 in the process of cropping. Another strong point of UniConverter is that it saves the results separately from the source file and you get to decide whether to delete the source file or not.
