Converting a bunch of short and small *.MP3s to *.WAV files?


Does the portable current 64-bit v3.2.5 have a better way to convert a bunch of short and small *.MP3s to *.WAVs? I tried 5 Ways to Convert MP3 to WAV on Mac or Windows Easily 's method in my old updated, 64-bit W10 Pro PC, but Audacity opens *.MP3 windows and then crashes (not responding). :frowning:

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering soon. :slight_smile:

If you’re just converting without editing it’s usually easier to use something like Kabuu Audio Converter. Once you’ve set-up your output format and output location I’s just Click, Drag, and Click and you can convert a batch or folder-full of files at onece.

Thanks. Bummer that Audacity can’t do that.

Audacity can batch convert WAV files to MP3 (using the “MP3 Conversion” macro). Converting from MP3 to WAV requires making a similar macro but replacing the “ExportMP3” command with “Export as WAV”.

However, programs that are designed specifically for batch conversion will usually be better for that specific task than using a general purpose audio editor.

I think this is for Gnome desktop only but I’m not sure - it may be multi platform . it works great and it’s fast
