To MP3 Converter Free is a handy application that offers to convert video and audio files into the MP3 format. The array of supported media file types is exhaustive as to diminish the chances of not to being able to convert your favorite music into the popular MP3 audio format.
The program has a simple and user-friendly interface. Yet, the tool's appearance is rather uncommon when compared to that of most audio converters. It consists of a small-sized window where you import the source files and determine the destination folder, which may be the source folder, a different folder, or a device. A good thing about this utility is that it allows you to add the converted files to a playlist in iTunes, so that you can have you favorite music always at hand.
Before enabling the conversion, you need to apply a series of output settings, conveniently organized into suggestively-named and easily-switchable tabs. Therefore, you have the ability to select specific options related to the source and output files, as well as the actions to perform when the conversion is completed. In addition, the program allows you to tailor sensitive audio parameters, such as the bit rate, the quality, and the channel. Furthermore, you can adjust the volume to a specific level, so that you can benefit from a better audio experience. The app has trimming and fading in/out capabilities, but they seem to be available only after buying a Premium Features subscription. Transferring the original tags to the output files is supported – still, editing those tags requires the installation of a different software program, provided by the same developer. Once all settings are done, you can enable the conversion.
To MP3 Converter Free can be considered a good alternative for home users willing to save their music collection in the MP3 format. The wide range of supported source formats and the ability to tweak output audio settings make it a good program. However, the lack of an audio preview tool is a major drawback, which hopefully will be amended in future releases.
