Looking for simple, free audio editing software

I have a song that I need to cut out a section in the middle. So all I need is to be able to remove that part, and make whatever minor adjustments (like fading) needed so the cut isn’t obvious. Anything free for Windows that can do this (or a web app would also be good/better) that isn’t too complicated?


First thing I thought of as soon as I read the thread title. You’re really not going to do any better for the price of free. Hell, it’s probably better than some other audio apps you have to pay a few bucks for.
