MP3 to WAV 16 bit 44199 hz mono conversion

Hi I have Audacity 2.2.1 and would like to know how to convert MP3 files to WAV 16 bit 44100 hz mono files for use in a Line 6 JM4 Looper. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated. New to the Forum so apologies if this question has been asked before but I couldn’t find it.

File > Import the MP3. After it opens in stereo, Tracks > Mix > Mixdown To Mono.

File > Export > Export as WAV.

Set the sampling rate with the window lower left. The bit depth is set at export.


You do not suddenly get WAV quality. It will still be MP3 quality in a very fancy, expensive box. Further, you will not be able to make another MP3 out of the work without the MP3 compression distortion catching up with you. At worse case, it will double.
