Hello, just wondering if anyone has any advice for what software (preferably free) that they use to convert their exported WAV files from Ableton into 320 quality MP3 files to use. Thanks.

I've used iTunes so far.

If you change your import settings to 320kbp/s MP3 then you can right click on a wav file and hit "make mp3 version".

Not sure what kind of quality that is but it's worked for me

I think that Cdex will do it:

If you are not afraid of using a command line tool, then I can just recommend LAME. Google for "lame mp3 encoder" and you will find the home page.

If you use lame.exe with a "for" statement, then you can - for example - convert all .wav files in a given folder into mp3 files and so on.

HTH, Martin

I prefer the free application 'Switch' to do all of that for me. It can convert basically any audio file into any other kind of audio file. So useful!

i use platinum notes. it's simple, converts mp3s well, and gives reports what might be wrong in a track. only if the tool tells me it had not corrected any flaws, i know my wav was technically fine, and so is my mp3 then.

but it's not free. still, in love with it (and mixed in key) :)

Hi there,

I would recommend using audacity. http://audacity.sourceforge.net
It doesn't come with MP3 export(decoder) functionality by default, but just follow the instructions in the manual how to add this depending on your OS, (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/manual- ... rtmp3.html).

Sooo easy! Do the following, and you will make it so that you can easily right-click any WAV file, and instantly convert it to 320kbps MP3. By far the simplest, quickest, and moste effective solution. (I modified these instructions slightly)

1- Download lame encoder from http://www.free-codecs.com/Lame_Encoder_download.htm
2- Extract lame.exe to c:\windows\
3- In an Explorer window, go Tools > Folder Options
4- Click on the File Types tab
5- Scroll down to WAV; select it
6- Click on the Advanced button
7- Click New... to add a new right click association
8- In Action, type in "Convert to MP3"
9- In Application used, type in the following (including quotes):
Quote:
"C:\windows\lame.exe" -b 320 -h "%1" "%1-mp3.mp3"
10- Click OK, OK, Close

What you have just done is enabled 'Convert to MP3' via a simple right-click.

BTW - This only works for Windows. Not sure how its done with mac.

for osx I liked most All2mp3

http://www.all2mp3.com/

I dislike itunes because it just doesn't drop the mp3 into the same directory where my original file is at.

I use the LAME encoder, but I do it inside my music player (foobar2000). LAME's really good for getting good quality mp3s with a low file size, due to its variable bit rate encoding.

How would you do this in Windows 7 please?
