Hi. The editor you are referring to is called Bsound, and last I checked it out the CVS module was called Bsound as well. Bsound can't work with MP3 directly; therefore, you're going to have 
to decode it first. Most of what I have used it for is to get rid of various sorts of audio within files, and it has served me quite well in this regard...I know it can do some other things; 
however, can't remember the rest of its features from the top of my head.
