Many times we get audio files that we cannot open because we do not have a supporting program. For example, you get an OGG file but it cannot be played in your MP3 player. In these cases, we can convert the file formats to the ones we can play easily. You can use the free online app called Switchr to convert audio files to a different format. You can also adjust the bitrate, sampling rate and duration of the converted file.
To use the Switchr app, all you have to do is visit their website. Using it is extremely simple. The conversion of audio files is done in three steps. In the first step, you have to select a file from your computer. You can select an audio file of upto 100 MB file size. The 100 MB file size limit is more than enough for most of the users. The supported file formats that you can upload are MP3, WAV, AAC, AIF, AU, FLAC, M4A, WMA and OGG.
In the second step, you have to select the target file format. The selectable target file formats are same as the ones you can choose for the source audio files. But you can also select to covert the file into an iPhone ringtone. The iPhone ringtone duration is limited to 29 seconds (which is the maximum length allowed by iPhone itself). If you click on Advanced, then you can also choose the target file’s bitrate, sampling rate, start time and duration.
In the third step, you have to enter your email address and click on the Switch My File button. This would cause the selected file to be uploaded to the Switchr servers and start converting it. After the conversion is over, the file download link would be sent to your email address from where you can download the converted file.
