Free M4a to MP3 Converter transforms all your MPEG4-based audio and video files into WAV or customizable MP3 audio files. Its simple and intuitive interface makes this tool suitable for all kinds of users, and allows you to batch-convert any number of AAC, M4A, MP4, or 3GP files into MP3 or WAV files in a snap.
Besides, the program can also re-encode your M4B audiobooks into any of the output formats supported in a simple and efficient way.

The program’s main window couldn’t be any simpler – your conversion list has been placed into a large central area, where you can add as many files and folders as needed. You can tell the program to play back any of those tracks in case you need to make sure you selected the right ones. You can also do that with whatever MPEG-4 video file whose audio soundtrack you wish to extract – not being a video player, though, you will only be able to listen to the video’s audio stream.

Free MP4 to MP3 Converter can re-encode your audio files into two possible output formats only, MP3 and WAV. If you select MP3 for the output, you will be allowed to tweak a couple of parameters to customize your resulting audio files, i.e., the bit rate, the sampling rate and the number of channels. Regrettably, the program includes no support for Variable Bit Rate MP3 conversions, which is a bit of a pity now that V0 MP3 rips seem to have become the norm among audiophiles.

The conversion process itself requires no further intervention on your side – you will be shown sequential progress bars for each of the items on the conversion list until the last item has been processed. You can mix any amount of files (both audio and video, and in any of the input formats supported – namely, 3GP, M4A, AAC, and M4B) on the same conversion list, which will save you lots of time. If only for this feature, Free MP4 and MP3 Converter is an app worth trying. You will be surprised by the flexibility of its conversion process, even though the number of media formats supported is certainly small.

Publisher's description

Do you need to convert AAC to MP3? M4a to MP3? MP4 audio to MP3? Your favorite player doesn't support M4a audio? Then take a look at the new tool from ManiacTools, Free M4a to MP3 Converter.

The program supports a number of input formats, like the above mentioned AAC, M4a, MP4 audio, M4b (audiobooks), and some other MPEG-4 based audio formats. You can convert those types of audio files to MP3 or uncompressed WAV. The latter can be used as an intermediate format for further converting (with tools like AudioConverter Studio).

Free M4a to MP3 Converter combines professional quality with high speed and user-friendly interface. You can simply drag and drop your M4a or AAC files from Windows Explorer and then hit "Convert" (or F5 on your keyboard). On the other hand, it is also possible to fine tune quality parameters for output files. The program supports full range of MP3 settings: bit rates up to 320 Kbit/s and sample rates up to 48 KHz. This way, you can get high quality audio files along with the portability of MP3 format (which is supported now by virtually every player, hardware or software).

The program has also a built-in audio player, which allows you to listen to your AAC and M4a files even without converting them.

And last, but not least: our converter is distributed as freeware. No need to register and to enter codes. Just download and start converting your AAC and M4a files to MP3.
