How to Convert Audio File Formats Using XRECODE3

We all have one or more audio files stored on our computers or mobile devices. And if you do not have any, then you can download them easily from the internet. But to ensure that an audio file will be played back on a device, we must first convert it into a format that is widely recognized and supported. For example, if you have an audio file with extension APE, chances are that you might have trouble playing it back on your smartphone.

We can convert audio files into many popular audio formats using a software XRECODE3. It is successor of an older software xrecode II about which we published about many years ago. It supports so many audio file formats because it uses another open-source media conversion library called FFmpeg. Since it uses FFmpeg, it can also be assumed that it is going to produce very high quality audio files.

For conversion of audio files, we have to simply drag-and-drop audio files on XRECODE3 window. We can also use the Files or Folders buttons to add the audio files or folders containing audio files. After adding the files, we can choose an output audio file format such as MP3, OGG, WMA, FLAC, WAV, APE and more.


In order to convert the audio files, we have to choose Encode as the action and then click on the Start button. but other actions are also available such as extraction, merging, splitting various channels, or copying. If your audio file has a very low volume, then we can apply some corrective effects such as normalization, remove silence etc.

There are some special functions provided by XRECODE3 as well. For example, we can rip tracks from an audio CD (unprotected). We can also extract audio streams from a video file including from videos having multiple audio streams.
