Editors' review

So this program is designed to raise or lower the bit rate of an MP3 file. We're not sure how useful it truly is. The reason for this is simple: once an MP3 has been encoded at a certain bit rate, converting it to a higher one won't actually make the sound quality any better due to the very nature of how audio compression works. True enough, when we turned a 128Kbps song in to a 320Kbps tune, we heard absolutely no difference. You can definitely hear the difference when you downgrade a file to a lower bit rate, but we doubt many users will want worse-sounding music. On the plus side, Mp3go128 is ultrasimple to use, making it immediately clear how to queue up batches of files and select the new bit rates. Unfortunately, the program supports no audio codecs other than MP3, so it can't even be used as a simple format converter. Curious users might try Mp3go128, but the program is unlikely to have a significant impact on the way your music sounds.
