Simple audio editing and combining

I am running Windows 10.  I am not an audiophile, but I need to combine and do minor editing with a variety of audio clips.   I don't mind paying for a program that will let me import a few audible files and put them end-to-end and then save it as a new file.  What is the best bet?

Thanks,

Phil

For Audio Editing alone, you could try Audacity:

If you no need to adjust the volume level, you can download and install HJ-Split to merge all files into one .

I've tried Audacity, VLC and Audacity.  Maybe I need to spend more time learning them, but I can't see how to open one MP3 file, then attach another MP3 file to it to make a combined MP3 file.   I used to have a "Wave Editor" that did that, but don't know where to find one now.

Thanks,

Phil

Goldwave.  It is free, simpler to use than Audacity, and still packs the features needed by pros.
