From time to time I got the need to trim intros/outros or silence from downloaded audio files.

I'm currently using Super Sound, but I find it a little silly that one of the last closed source, filled with ads app I still have installed is for such a small functionality.

On desktop I use ffmpeg for pretty much anything, so if there is some wrapper for it over android it would be ideal.

WavePad is open source but it's free for non-commercial use and it's pretty nice. Handles a lot of formats out of the box.

*Edit: Oh, that would be for desktop. Just noticed I was in the Android /c

If you are comfortable with ffmpeg you can give termux a try. I used ffmpeg through it in the past to occasionally snip out parts from mp4's and that worked like a charm.

If you only want to trim MP3 or AAC files I can recommend mp3DirectCut. Ad-free, fast and simple.

PlayStore Link mp3DirectCut

Audacity used to be open source, several forks of it exist but easy to just download the last open source version of audacity (most Linux package managers will use this by default).
