Editors' Review

+

MP3s let you pack thousands of songs onto one disc, yet they still sound good, especially on your smartphone or portable player. More than one type of encoding goes about calling itself "MP3," and they're not always completely compatible with every device and app. To standardize your MP3 collection, you'll need an MP3 converter, such as Free MP3 Converter from Pianosoft. It can convert your MP3s into several formats and quality levels, and when paired with Winamp, it can upconvert your MP3s to WAVs for compatibility with WAV editors. You can also use it to reduce and convert captured audio from other sources, such as Line In, TV In, and Mic In. Of course, it also makes quick work of converting WAV audio created by the built-in Sound Recorder in Windows; however, it doesn't rip audio from CDs. Plenty of tools do, but they don't always offer many output options. That's where Free MP3 Converter steps in, converting immense WAVs into wee MP3s.

MP3 converters and utilities tend to break down into two camps: those offering maximum control and those designed to be as easy to use as possible. There's a lot of traffic between the two camps, naturally, and while Free MP3 Converter definitely pitches its tent in the easy-to-use camp, it has its share of options, though once you've set them, you can hide them. Free MP3 Converter makes things clear enough for beginners to grasp, such as entry fields labeled Choose Input File and Choose Output File as well as icons labeled Browse Input and Browse Output. Check boxes select easy options such as Voice mode, High Quality, and Mark All as Copyrighted as well as advanced options like Byte swab all data, Downmix stereo to mono, and Do Not Use Short Blocks. We could also specify I/O frequencies, output mode, and bit rate. Once we'd made our choices, we could hide the Options and quickly process batches of files from an efficient minimized view.

Free MP3 Converter is a full-featured converter with many options, but it's easy on the user, too, with an agreeable balance between simplicity and flexibility.

"Not Impressed by this program"

December 10, 2010  |  By Roxie2288

 |  Version: Free MP3 Converter 2

Pros

This is probably a good program for an advanced user.

Cons

I didn't find it easy to use.

Summary

There were too many check box choices that I didn't understand and would have to research before even using the program. For example SBF=21 cutoff....I have no idea what that means, I can guess, but... I did not convert 1 file with this and wound up uninstalling it.

"Do Not Download"

February 08, 2009  |  By Daskashi

 |  Version: Free MP3 Converter 2

Pros

None at all

Cons

Not only is this download infected with spyware but the program almost made me go deaf. Did one basic encoding and opened the file not excepting it to be blaring static! This download should absolutely be taken down from this site.

"not drag and drop but still easy to use"

December 25, 2008  |  By gautulus

 |  Version: Free MP3 Converter 2

Pros

converts larger files that crash other mp3 encoding progs. You can fine tune your setting the way you like.

Cons

ads for other products after you close it are tedious

Summary

I use this prog for converting hour and longer wav files to mp3 for storage and airing online and it can handle file sizes that other progs can't. The only draw back I've found is the annoying adds when you close it.
