MediaMonkey allows you to convert tracks in your Library from one compression format to another while transferring Track properties into the destination format's tags. This is useful if you have a device that only supports one format (e.g. if have a portable MP3 player you may want to convert OGG files to MP3). Note that when converting from one lossy compression format to another, there is always some loss in fidelity. To maintain the highest possible quality for your collection, do not replace the original file.
To convert, select the Track(s) you want to convert and click Tools > Convert Audio Format . The Convert Audio Format dialog will appear, from which you may configure:
- Whether to replace the original files or convert the files to a new destination.
- The compression format to be used for ripping the Tracks. See Digital Ripping & Digital File Formats and MP3 Encoder Settings.
- Whether the volume of the Tracks should be leveled as they are encoded. This is slightly different from just analyzing the volume levels, since in addition to performing the analysis, this actually modifies the volume levels of the converted Track.
- The Directory and Filename format to be used for the new Tracks. Choose the format in which your files will be saved by clicking the <Artist>, <Album>, etc. buttons, and click the folder button if you wish to save to a different folder than the source files. Note that if you have not changed the directory or format used, the conversion may replace existing files.
Press 'Ok' to proceed with the conversion.
