There are many situations where you may need to combine voice memos into one. For example, if you're an interviewer who has completed a series of interviews on Voice Memos, you may need to combine these recordings into one. Similarly, if you make some presentations with Voice Memos, you may also need to merge these audio clips into one.
Anyway, combing audio files is a great way to put the fragmented audio clips together and make them more coherent and fluent. So in this guide, we'd like to show some helpful methods to combine voice memos on a PC, Mac, and iPhone. These methods also apply to merge two audio files.
Part 1. How to Merge Voice Recordings on Windows
Editing audio files with a computer is more recommended than that with a mobile phone because the computer offers you a larger screen, which won't strain your eyes and improve your productivity. But this requires you to transfer voice memos from your iPhone to the computer. After that, you can trim, convert, or merge voice recordings with this audio editing software - EaseUS MakeMyAudio.
EaseUS MakeMyAudio is a comprehensive audio editor that is made up of nine tools, including a recorder, cutter, joiner, converter, video to MP3 converter, ID3 tag editor, transfer tool, CD ripper, and CD burner. These are built-in programs, so you don't have to find a seperate device to edit voice recordings.
