Trying To Find a Specialized Audio Silence Trimming App

Last Modified: 2012-08-16
I'm interested in finding an application that will Trim Out, Or Add To, the Silence at both the beginning and the end of Individual MP3 Audio Files to Preset Times

I've tried numerous editors, many of which will detect and split files on the basis of finding Windows of Silence (ie below a preset dB Level), but this is NOT what I'm after

I'm trying to find something that will look Forward from the Beginning of the track until it rises above a Preset dB Level, then Backwards from the End of the Track for the same thing

The Body of the Track is then what's between these two points, and Preset Lead-In and Lead-Out Silences are then added to that to give the Output File

mpTrim 2.13 Looks like it should do this, but I can't get it working and I get no reply from the Author

This edit should be lossless and the app should preferably work on both mp3 and mp3Pro files
