wav to mp3
Well iTunes does that fairly well and it’s free.
Click the General tab, then click Import Settings in the lower section of the window. Click the menu next to Import Using, then choose the encoding format that you want to convert the song to. From your library, select one or more songs that you want to convert. Choose File > Convert, then Create [format] Version
I found Media Monkey on Ninite, will see how that goes , thanks !
It went suck fast. Too bloated, uninstalled. I want bare bones !
Wav2Mp3 ... suck donkey
Foobar2000. It's primarily an old-school player/music library app but handles transcoding well. Very lightweight... doesn't hold your hand so roll up your sleeves. I've used it for many years.
"NEXT" button not active during setup. Next.....
You already exhausted my two suggestions...Media Monkey and Foobar2000.
I don't know if you can find a stripped down media converter any more. I use dbpoweramp, but it's not free.
Not sure if it's still the case, but it used to be that royalties had to be paid for a mp3 encoder. For instance, you can get a version of dbpoweramp for free, but it won't include the LAME mp3 encoder.
This is what I use too but haven't needed it in a long time. Used to be free then they went to free without certain Codecs. The codecs were easy to find though. No it looks like you get everything for a trial period.
Used to use dbpoweramp, lost on a vanished computer. used to use Cakewalk Pyro,
not sure why I quit ....maybe one version stopped working, anyway CW Pyro (2003!)
is converting a batch right now
Audacity can export multiple files to whatever format you select.
I haven't seen a good free one that I like, but I wanted to throw Switch Audio File Converter out there - It's not free but currently costs about $20 for a license:
I haven't bought a license for it yet, but what I like about it is that you can give it a huge list of files to convert, choose your MP3 settings, and let it go. It can even preserve the directory structure, so if you have a bunch of WAV or FLAC files arranged in artist/album directories, it will preserve that directory structure in the destination directory as it converts to MP3.
Huh....guess I didn't look hard enough there
I did some one at a time there. Ah well, Audacity on one PC, CW Pyro on the other.
Turns out I was all set up and didn't know it . D'OH!
Of course I have to ask, what do people still use .mp3 for ?
Your phone, the factory radio in your Ford truck, your 15 year old iPod (with free Rockbox software upgrade), your Pioneer USB receiver, your Bluray player, your TV....just about everything plays back lossless FLAC files.
If you still have an ancient iPod that has the harddrive in it, you can even get a HD adapter and pop in a SD card or two - just like your phone.
Two 512gig SD cards in an iPod is serious storage!
Don't try and drag me into the 21st century; it's not happening , pal
