I have a drive filled with Itunes lossless.

It is in a typical directory structure of Singer/Cdtitle/songs

I am looking for a simple (as in virtually idiot-proof) software solution to, on a different directory on the same drive, called whatever (e.g. Itunes-02), recreate the original directory structure of the original directory and then song by song, transform each song from the Itunes lossless into a high quality vbr of around 160 or 192.

I appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you.

I googled real quick and found this: http://www.boilsoft.com/audioconverter/index.html. I've never used it, so I make no guarantees.

But there's an easier way, assuming you have the drive space and time.

Step 1: COPY the entire directory structure to another directory.
Step 2: Run any sort of converter that outputs to the source directory.
Step 3: Type in the command to delete all the originals within the copied directory
del /S *.alac
or (in linux and maybe OSX)
rm -rf *.alac

It's horribly space inefficient, but it'll get the job done.
