Free Audio Converter enables you to convert uncompressed WAV files of huge size to WMA, which is widely played in many platforms as cell phones, portable audio player and others. With format presets, you are able to precisely specify output quality for different purposes.
Step 1. Input Audio Files
Click “Add” and 3 ways can be applied to add audio files: “Add Files” is for one or more audio files; “Add Folder” is for the folder containing audio files; “Add Folder Tree” is for the folder along with its subfolders. Once the audio files are input, you can change their order by “Up” & “Down” or delete them from the list by “Remove”/”Clear”. If you want to extract audio from video files, you can input video files instead.
Step 2. Choose Quality Presets & Codec
In the menu of “Convert to”, select one conversion type from “Presets” and “Codec”. If “Presets” has been chosen, you will see a whole list of quality presets in the dropdown menu of “Presets”. Choose the one that best suits your needs. To adjust codec settings, click “Codec Options”. To specify effects and filter settings, click “Filters”. After that, click “Browse” to choose an output folder for the converted audio files or check “Same as source” to save them in the source folder.
Step 3. Start Audio Conversion
Now, start audio conversion by clicking “Start”. After conversion, you can click “Open” to open output folder to find the converted files.
