Not sure what you mean by 'cut'. Do you mean basic editing? You can probably just drag and drop the files into the arrangement section. If you need to batch convert, here's a video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6pneJ6w2Vs
The most basic edition. Simply delete part of the file. I found such software. This is, unfortunately, payable. Audacity does not work without re-conversion. In my opinion, there is simply no such software, freeware.
"GiliSoft Video Editor is very powerful ogg Splitter and ogg Cutter, split ogg, cut ogg without re-encode, So It is very fast and without any quality loss." "1 Year/1 PC $49.95 Special Price $39.95" "Lifetime/1 PC $59.95 Special Price $49.95"
So it is possible without re-conversion. But it costs. You can cut mp3 files for free without re-encoding with mp3DirectCut.
Oh wow, fabulous. And surely worth $50 for people who will use it often. I wonder how they do it with no quality loss. My understanding (wrong I guess) is that this sort of encoding is continuous. So it's not like a series of individual samples.

I do not know either. From the practical side it looks like this. The mp3 (or ogg) file when you cut it, it's like cutting a piece of audio tape with scissors. This must be the construction of the file. You can delete a fragment, you can cut out a fragment, you can also divide a file in half or many pieces. Something like a text file copy, paste.
When a compressed file is decompressed, that's the same as converting it to a Wave file. At least I think so. But if that company claims its software can edit files without re-encoding, I'll believe them and be glad to have learned something.
