I wan't to convert some of my vinyls to mp3s but can't find any easy to use free / cheap wav to mp3 converter which actually works on winXP. Any recommendations?

+ LAME

job done!

(I can't remember if it comes with LAME bundled or if you need to grab it seperate, been ages since I installed it)

its great for ripping from CD, but to convert .wav -> .mp3 you just go in, set-up your quality preferances then drag your .wavs into the main window bit & away it goes.

LAME I have, but can't remember if I tried EAC already but will check it out later!

@all: Any other recommendations?

eac (rips cd's to wav) and lame (converts wavs to mp3s) here too, but have recently given up mp3 for flac. so now it's eac and flac. wink

but if you are coming from vinyl i'd recommend recording high quality wavs first (in your daw of choice, i'd go 24bit 44KHz), keeping these for archive purposes, and then creating whatever low quality/file size files from these masters for ipod listening.

I made the wavs already but couldn't find a working converter.

cool, then i still suggest eac with lame.exe.

I use CDex all the time. I recommend it. Very easy and flexible.

best way for pc is to download adobe audition from their site... torrent the crack- and then open your wavs, and SAVE AS to mp3....

i use Switch which is free and seems to work fine. it's Mac only though afaik so not much use for you on XP d'oh!

Another vote for CDex, I use it often and you have fine control of the LAME config. What's not to like about a piece of software that has an --insane command line flag?

Really late on this post but if anyone comes along there is a freeware wav to mp3 converter called ABC Audio Converter. I never have a problems with it.

Looking for wav to mp3 as well. Ages ago i used lame codec, with something called dmc or maybe thats not right, it was about 15 years ago. It ripped cds and converted all kinds of formats and was easy to use.

today i have audition but i dont know if it uses lame. Maybe i shouldnt worry about the codec.

Id like a utility outside of audition so i dont have to open each file, sonce i have about 20 wav recordings. I will check out the above. thumbs up

Epic necro. Threads like these should be in museums.
Interesting that LAME is still the best solution by far, which is no surprise since it's open source, although mp3 is now obsoleted by Opus.

What's opus? Edit: looked it up, oh. Meh. YALF. I'll stick with flac.

Audition has a batch mode that works pretty well, once you figure out how to use it. And it uses LAME, although since that's just about all that's available currently, is no big deal.
