Music converters are plenty, and many good ones that are free as well, so here the competition comes down to ease of use balanced with feature requirement. There are many popular converters that support a huge format range but let’s face it: most of the times, an average user doesn’t need any of those except the most popular ones. A plethora of settings might also boggle down the average Joe. Hence simplicity also takes the prize.
Considering these factors, Music Converter (MuConv) certainly seems promising. This is a simple, no-nonsense music converter that supports only the popular formats; namely, Lame MP3, OGG Vorbis, FAAC MPEG-4, and WAVE, and allows conversion between these with utmost ease.
To get going, simple point to the folder that contains the files-to-be-converted, or drag and drop the files. Choose the output directory and format, and click Start. There are no complex settings or options dialog to play with, and all you have control over is a few parameters that are present next to the formats. MuConv also lets you save the ID3 tags for all your music tracks.
Conversion speed is generally fast and output is of good quality. However, your processor will play the main role in determining how much it would take for the conversion process to complete.
Salient features of MuConv include:
- Easy to use interface
- Converting between MP3, OGG, AAC and WAV formats
- Saving, Editing or automatically filling metadata (id3tags)
- Batch file processing
- Extract audio tracks from video files (avi, mpeg, mov etc.)
- Volume Normalization
The application works on Windows platform, and we tested it on Windows 7 32-bit OS.
