We have previously covered two audio converters for Windows, Free Audio And Video Converter and Crazy Media Converter. But nothing comes close to FanVista. It is a multifunctional advanced audio converter and extractor that can convert between 12 audio formats and can extract the audio from a long list of video formats.
Apart from the basic functionality, it can read and convert audio tags, has a fast converting speed(it doesn’t use temp files thus speeding up the process), includes a build-in player to check the audio quality, supports drag & drop, and has the ability to auto format settings for each file.
It is a must have audio converter and extractor for Windows 7. Why Windows 7? Because the latest release makes full use of Windows 7 features, it shows progress, jump list & status icon in taskbar and has special open file & folder dialogs.
The whole process takes a total of three steps, select the files, choose format, and finally convert them.
In the first step, you can add as many audio files as you want, there is even an option to add multiple folders. There is a small audio player given at the bottom to test the music file.
In the second step, choose the output format, bit rate, sample rate, and channels. For every format you select there are different settings given, so it would vary depending on which output format you have selected.
If you do not know which settings are required, just check the Auto Setting checkbox and it will take care of everything.
In the third and final step, choose the output destination and some additional options related to it. You can choose to keep the folder structure intact, remove source music files from the list or from the hard disk after conversion is complete.
Hit the small Convert button highlighted in green to begin conversion. If you are using Windows 7 and looking for a good free audio converter and extractor, go for FanVista. It also works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2003/2008.
It is very stable and works seamlessly with every audio format. The fast conversion speed makes this app a winner. Enjoy!
