Audacity is the cross platform sound editing tool, which is free. It is a very good replacement of Goldwave which sells for $50. You can use it for editing mp3 or ogg or and sound clip. You can use it to make (crop) small clips from your music (mp3) files to use it as ringtone on your cell phones, or just want to re-compress or re-encode a particular audio file. It is way more powerful and get lot more done for you. Best part is it is absolutely free for Linux (comes with all major distributions Fedora 12, Ubuntu 9.10 etc.), Windows, and Mac (Leopard, Snow Leopard etc.). To download it for Windows 7 or Snow Leopard, visit here. Linux users do:

$ sudo apt-get install audacity or yum install audacity (as super user)
