Solved=> quick & dirty wav to mp3 conversion.

I found a nice spot for free hang drum tunes, and they come in zips of WAV files, stupidly huge & not nearly as useful as MP3s.

Just so anyone knows - I don't hear real well, so I don't need anything fancy with high bitrate, etc.

Can someone point me to a really small, quick & easy wav to mp3 converter that I can just drop 'em onto and have 'em come out at the same folder ??

Thanks.

if you use for example Winamp u can do that, Preferences->Plug-ins->Output->Nullsoft MP3 Output Plug-in

Configure output location, bitrate, samplerate and channels, for example Desktop, 192kBit/s, 44100Hz, Stereo

Drag&Drop wav in winamp and play (turn off repeat)

or

use lame.exe with something like command: lame input_file.wav output_file.mp3

http://www.rarewares.org/mp3-lame-bundle.php

replace names of files how you need
paste that command in text editor like notepad and save for example as wav2mp3.bat
put that bat in the same folder as lame.exe
drag&drop wav on wav2mp3.bat

or easy way

here is all you need, rename your wav to input.wav and just drag&drop on .bat file and you will get mp3 file at 128kbps, 44100Hz, joint stereo, cbr

That Pazera program even comes as a small no-install and it reduced ~500mb of WAV files to 50mb of MP3s in about 2 minutes.

Absolutely Perfect !!!

Thanks.

Pazera Audio Extractor is just a FrontEnd of FFmpeg which use LAME MP3 encoding library

there is a tons of front ends which uses Lame mp3 encoder or FFmpeg

Xanax I do appreciate your reply & offered solution also.

And...:

It's a complete, well-made drag-n-drop GUI with easy, saveable settings.

Not being a coder it is also ALOT better than anything I can do for/by myself, a mere 3mb download, a no-install, and did what I needed with no muss, fuss or bother.

I'm quite happy & have some shiny new hang drum tunes to play; so it's all good.

OP, the thing that's nice about the Winamp method is that you can set up a whole playlist, hit play, walk away, and it'll go through and convert your whole playlist. Yeah, you could set it up with a batch file, but it's drag and drop with Winamp. And the Winamp plugin lets you change the bitrate, also gives the option for variable bit rate (VBR) which can make for better quality files.

When I decided to go digital I had to rip about 150 CDs but my hard drive only had room for about 20 at a time. I'd rip 20, then set up the playlist and it would do 300 songs at a time for me (took about 20 minutes to convert). Great stuff.
