1. Free Audio Converter for Mac

Free Audio Converter for Mac can be one of the most comprehensive solutions to batch convert audio files between any formats including MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, MP2, M4A, OGG, etc. Lossless audio codecs like FLAC, ALAC, APE, etc. are also supported for high-quality enjoyment.

Step 1. Input Audio Files

After you finish launching Free Audio Converter for Mac, you can either drag and drop audio files directly into the program window or click "Add" and in the activated window choose those audio files.

Step 2. Specify Output Quality

Drag the slider bar below "Quality" and choose the output quality you need (Less, Middle, Good, Super). If you click the red button on the right of "Quality", there you can choose the bitrate by dragging the slider bar. To choose the output folder, click the red button in front of "Change all Paths". The "Reset" button can be used to reset the settings.

2. iTunes

There are a lot of audio programs that can perform this conversion, but since you've already got iTunes (you couldn't have bought songs from the iTunes Store without it!), using it is easiest. You can use iTunes to convert song files between compressed and uncompressed formats.

3. Mac OS X Finder

Mac OS X Finder can be used as an audio converter but the fact is that it can only accept AIFF, AIFC, Sd2f, CAFF, or WAVE files and can only output to four AAC presets. So, this method is somewhat limited compared to other audio converters.

4. QuickTime

Another easy way to convert your audio files on Mac is to use QuickTime. It is the default media player on OS X and from it you can export audio to a specific format. You can also use the regular export dialog to export to a more general format.

5. Online Conversion

If you don't want any program download, online conversion might be a good choice. Simply select a file that you wish to convert and choose from the various audio formats that are available. But it may have limitations like file size, amount, format, etc.

6. Aolor Music Converter

Aolor Music Converter has the advantage allowing you to batch convert audio files quickly. Note that its free version only converts audio to MP3 and some of the functions are limited after 14 days. So, you can use it to help you out in a pinch sometimes.
