Extending the length of an MP3 file

I need to add about 20 seconds of voice to the start of an MP3 recording without deleting any of the existing recording.

How to do this, Experts, please?

Excellent, thank you, MASQ.

Exactly what I needed.
Hi Gordon,

I use an excellent commercial product called Total Recorder:

The Professional Edition (not the Standard Edition) has the ability to insert a file anywhere in another file:

So you would record your additional 20 seconds in a file and then insert that file at the beginning of the other file.

Total Recorder Professional Edition is not free, but is reasonably priced, imo, at $35.95 USD. I've been using it for all of my recording needs for many, many years — fantastic piece of software. As a disclaimer, I want to emphasize that I have no affiliation with this company and no financial interest in it whatsoever. I am simply a happy user/customer. Regards, Joe
Thanks, Joe

This looks good, too
You're welcome, Gordon. Happy to help. Regards, Joe
