Free program that will convert wav (on dard drive) to mp3

Does anyone know of a free program (I am unemployed) that will convert a music file .wav to mp3? Thanks guys. I have the wav on my hard drive. I can do this directly from a CD but not for a file that is on my computer.

I downloaded and tried a trial program that Robert mentioned recently. It is not free for the full version, but the free trial worked great for me. It is Power MP3 WMA Converter, at http://www.cooolsoft.com/powerconvertor.htm . I think the trial version limits to one song at a time conversion so will take longer to convert a large number of songs.

You can try the musicmatch basic version. I believe that you will find a conversion option in the File menu. I have found no other program that is as easy to use.

Hi Jane,

I have been using a free and very simple to use program called "simple Mp3 Maker"
It rips CDs, Encodes and Decodes MP3 (MPEG1/MPEG2 Layer 3), AAC, Vorbis/Ogg or WMA files to WAV files and vice versa. It is very fast and as I said before, very simple to use.
Check it out at: http://www.geocities.com/simplelance/index.html
Hope it works for you..

See ya'

I third the vote for dBPowerAmp. It converts almost anything to almost anything. Does it with a right click menu. Simple.

Try Acoustica.com, they have a free trial, I have used it for several years and can find nothing better, and if you buy it is a low price and well worth it..

I found a great tool to do this. JetAudio has not only a converter but is also a media player too.

Db Poweramp I have found will change your music files to any format you like with the proper codecs, download through kazaa and use astalavista to finish the registration then all the codecs are free

Go to www.winamp.com. Winamp 5.02, combined with a MP3 output plugin available on that site, can convert any file format (or CD tracks) to MP3s at up to 320 kbps. It's what I use.

hi,
This is prash here. You can have the free version of Music match Jukebox version 6.0 . This helps you to convert your WAV files on your hard drive to mp3. You also have this feature of converting it to a VBR(variable bit rate) or CBR(constant bit rate). Mostly all songs are in CBR(128kbps). If you need a better quality you can have more than 128kbps. Once you have this, go to File menu --> choose Convert. Choose the location of the source file and then choose the required format of your output file. Choose a destination for the output file. Click 'Convert'. Thats it. Your conversion is complete!

Hi,
If you have; or, have not obtained a program to convert .wav to .mp3, I would still check out CDex as it is a great program to have on board if you are interested at all in music.

Go to: http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/features.php

I know you will be as happy with this program as I am.

Another option somewhat related to MusicMatch is the Windows version of iTunes. It's excellent for organizing your music collection and does conversions from wav, mp3, and even midi into any other format.
