Converting .m4a to .mp3 but retaining folder structure

Post by shotokan101 » Thu Feb 08, 2018 10:19 am

Hi,

I recently Archived a load of my Albums to loss-less .m4a format and I now want to generate a copy of the album folders by converting the M4A Album Folders to generate an MP3 copy at HQ Bitrate for use in mobile devices not supportuing .m4a directly.

I need to retain the current folder structure so is there a way to use the .m4a folders (en-mass/batch) and convert thes eto .mp3 specifying a differnet output location for the folders - or do I need to copy the whole .m4a album folder structures to another location and then "convert in-place" and either select "replace original" or leave both and then to a cleanup pass manually to delete all the .m4a versions ?

Thanks

Jim

You can use Masks like <Path>, <Folder> and <Filename> to recreate the same Path: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... ormats/4.0

Something like "G:\<Folder:1>\<Filename>".
Try numbers other than "1"
