I'm searching for a simple audio cutting and merging tool running on Linux. Ideal would be a Gtk application, but only a nice to have. I know of audacity, but this is a little too much.

Goal is to make it used by an unexperienced user.

Features should be quiet simple:

  • cutting mp3/ogg to different files -> e.g. a long files into 3 small ones
  • merging 2 sound files to one (concat would be ok)
  • saving in different formats

Check mp3splt.

  • Free and open source
  • GTK interface
  • can open mp3 and ogg
  • fast because it doesn't decode audio
  • splits files at specified time
  • doesn't merge audio - for that use Audacity

Don't bother downloading it, it's already in Ubuntu repos. So you can install with sudo apt-get install mp3splt-gtk mp3splt

Here is a screenshot:

How about audacity ? It is free, open source, cross-platform. Simplicity may be discussional
