Converting to MP3
Join the party
Although most digital music fans know that the MP3 audio format is not the best in terms of sound quality, it is undeniably the most prevalent codec available for download. As a result, it's also the most supported audio format, with almost every single media device possessing MP3 functionality.
All to MP3 Converter 1.6
All to MP3 takes most of the other audio formats – including WMA, OGG Vorbis, WAV, APE, FLAC, and CDs – and converts them to Mpeg-1 audio layer 3. For the music lover who downloads tunes from a number of independent sources, All to MP3 truly offers an outlet for each of the (remotely) popular shell extensions.
Advanced WMA Workshop 2.1
Considered by many to be the best tool for converting from Windows Media Audio to MP3, Advanced WMA Workshop 2.1 sticks to the basics. Although it doesn't offer conversion features for each and every extension on the market (like All to MP3 Converter 1.6), it does provide the user with an intuitive interface for some of the most popular formats, including OGG Vorbis and WMA.
Audio Conversion 1.8
Audio Conversion 1.8 offers something to both the amateur and professional audio format converter. Although real tech junkies are given the ability to perform conversions across a spectrum of different settings, the step-by-step and easy-to- use interface gives those new to audio codecs a simplified conversion tutorial. Many consider it to be the best tool for converting MP3 to WAV and WMA to MP3.
These are three of the most popular converters to the MP3 format; furthermore, each offers different features and audio format applicability. As you may be able to infer from our descriptions of each tool, the most desired conversion is Windows Media Audio, or WMA to MP3. This is because Microsoft's WMA format is the second most sought after codec, and is exclusively supported by a number of online music stores and distributors, such as (the now legal) Napster.
