I normally rip my mp3 files at 192kbps. I do ahve some 128kbps wma files. I know taht I can convert wam to mp3 but is it possible to convert these wma files to mp3 without further compression to the sound; if so at what bitrate for the conversion?
JoeC - Thanks for your reply. Your link was very interesting but what I still cannot gauge is whether by converting a wma file encoded at a reasonable bitrate to mp3 at a good bitrate of say 192kbps, there will be any loss of wuality from the wma quality of that track.
I have used this for a couple of years now and its an excellent little program. It should do what you are wanting. This program will allow you to load the wma file into Audacity and then if you select the "EXPORT AS MP3" option from the FILE menu within the Audacity program then save your file it should be then converted from wma to MP3. You can also edit/cut pieces out of the wma/MP3 file. It really is an excellent little program.
skidzy - please see my last posting above yours. Your link is the same as JoeC but I need to know if this is indeed just a switch of filetag at the bitrates I mentioned or will there be degradation from the wma file?
