Converting Wav to MP3

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by jenderfazz, Oct 24, 2004.

  1. Quick question: Which is the best, free program to convert .wav files to .mp3's? I have a few recordings in wav format that are over 30 megs each that could use the conversion. Thanks in advance.

    My personal favorite is dB power AMP, you'll probably need to find the LAME codec from somewhere else.

  5. LAME with RazorLame front-end ( http://www.dors.de/razorlame/index.php )

    I use the -alt-preset-standard preset which many people feel gives the best ratio of quality to size. I have done many experiements to try and see if I can hear the difference between the original wav file and the encoded MP3 and I haven't been able to.

  6. I tried the LAME/RazorLame combo and it worked well. Thanks a lot everyone!
