Some of the newer compressions for audio files such as AAC, or MPEG-4 audio, are much more efficient than older formats like MP3, and often have higher quality sound. The problem is that these AAC files cannot be archived on audio or data CD because of compatibility issues.This is scary because if your hard drive were to crash, you may lose all the AAC files you've purchased online! Luckily, this simple little conversion tool will allow you to convert AAC files to the more versatile

I downloaded the convertor today and had to select the file twice, then the second conversion had no audio. I can't recommend this at this time. 1/3/06

get a copy of itunes 4.2 then you can convert from aac to mp3 just by selecting the file and right clicking (this was before apple got all microsoft on us)

It's ok but I think my way is much easier... I use Sound Studio which comes standard with all iBooks to convert my aac files to aiff and then to mp3 using iTunes...I know what i'm doing... but this app does seem to shorten the process so great for saving time

Regarding the "albeit slow" comment I posted a few mintues ago, I was mislead by the fact that the file icon did not show up on the desktop promptly. It's only taking a few seconds to convert files on the D2G5 after all (five file conversions took less than 3 seconds each).

Now, about converting audio books...

Worked well on a few files about 7MB in size. No spinning ball indicator on my dual2G5 w/4GB of memory. Didn't use more than 98% of one processor, and quite often used very few resources for periods of time. Does a fine job albeit slowly.

I would really like to be able to convert audio books to MP3 for archiving. These tend to be more than 8hrs in length per segment, which causes an immediate "error: buffer~NewMovieFromFile, -2048". Please add this to the feature wish list. Thanks!

Quite splendid! Answered a specific need I had.

For some months, I've been archiving my CD collection into iTunes, using the default AAC conversion. I happened to get an MP3 player recently, but it won't import most of my songs: they're in AAC format, and only a few MP3 players (e.g., the iPod) will recognize AAC. The only alternative was to burn playlists to CD--SCORES of songs, if not more--or reimport my library. This app largely solves the problem, though a direct AAC to MP3 conversion would have been better.
