I think that any decent multitrack recording software will give you the
option of converting a wave file to a unique copy. So, if you crop it down
and convert it to a unique copy, you should just the cropped part as a new
wave file.

Syntrillium's CoolEdit Pro is good at that. They have unfortunately been
taken over by Adobe and it is now called Adobe Audition. I've had nothing
but problems dealing with Adobe and with Audition. I use my older CoolEdit
software instead.

    Good luck,
