MP3 tools… the kind that rip, convert, merge and split… are plentiful as stand-alone applications but it’s rare to come across them all integrated into a full suite – and especially for free. That’s exactly what ‘MP3 Toolkit’ offers; a complete set of free powerful tools to perform just about every operation required for audio files.

MP3 Toolkit is a free and powerful Windows app includes MP3 converter, CD ripper, tag editor, MP3 cutter, MP3 merger and MP3 recorder for users who want to handle MP3 files easier.

You can use MP3 Toolkit to convert audio for mobile devices, make ringtones, fix tag information, rip Audio CD, record sound or merge audio pieces to a complete MP3 file.

MP3 Toolkit is a modest 10.5MB download, the execute file scans 100% clean through Virus Total and installation is clean without any bundling or nasty surprises. The main interface is so simple and effective it is pretty much self-explanatory. Hovering the mouse cursor over each tool listed down the left hand side reveals a preview window including a brief description:

Clicking on a tool opens the interface specific to that tool. As you can see there are 6 tools in all, let’s take a look at the main ones:
