Free WMA to MP3 Converter

If you need to convert a WMA audio file to an MP3, Jodix Technologies' Free WMA to MP3 Converter can do it quickly and easily. WMA stands for Windows Media Audio. It encompasses four codecs and several file types, but all you really need to know is that WMA is the format Windows uses for the audio part of your Windows Media files and for jobs like recording TV sound. These formats are widely compatible -- inside Windows, at least -- and they play on Windows Media Center, Media Player, and compatible apps, whether or not they're part of a video container.

Free WMA to MP3 Converter opened in our 64-bit Windows 7 system with the Tip of the Day displaying the next thing we were going to mention about this app: it converts all the audio formats covered by the WMA designation: WMA, WMV, and ASF. You can turn the tool tips on and off, of course. "No nonsense" was the first thing that came to mind when we saw Free WMA to MP3 Converter's efficient layout, a square dialog with a main view displaying the program's Task List and a lower panel for Conversion Settings. The control suite is equally simple: Add Files, Remove, Edit, Start, Help, and About. With eight headings, the searchable, indexed Help file is more complex than the program! But "easy-to-use" doesn't mean "stripped-down" or lacking in settings; when you add files, the settings wizard appears. Starting with Input and Output directories and a file info display, it walked us through each step, including bit rate, sample rate, and channel mode, as well as a tag editor. We could add lots of files and convert them all in batches or individually by selecting or deselecting file check boxes.

We pressed Start. Free WMA to MP3 Converter finished quickly and asked us if we'd like to see the destination folder. We did. The converted files saved significant space and played normally in our usual MP3 player.
