Hey everyone,

I'm a musician, and I've recently decided to go digital from analog (in terms of playing). I've uploaded a metric crapton of myself playing, and after week, I've noticed that I have been saving them as mp3 instead of wav! Each clip is anywhere from 2 to 15ish seconds, and I was wondering if there's a semi-fast way to convert them all? I would like to drag-and-drop, but from the looks of it, I might be spending the next 2-3 days converting each file individually.

I kept hearing about this forum and how smart all of you are tongue.gif, so I figured I'd try here before I get carpel tunnel.

Thanks a ton in advanced if any of you have suggestions on what programs to use. (I'm using a PC and my budget is $100-$200).

If you have 1000 clips with say 10s length, then that is less that 3 hours of material. Random album (1 hour) converts in 15 seconds (on my machine, using ffmpeg as decoder), so your conversion should not take more than 45 seconds.... , no need to invent any parallel workflow.
