Do anyone know an application that can do the following from a commandline:

- Convert the first 30 seconds of a wav to MP3
- Convert a wav to mp3 and mix it with another wav or MP3

The usage is a web application, but I expect that we need to install a appliaction on the server that we can execute from PHP.

It's a windows server
