Install free Freemake WAV to MP3 Converter

Download and install free Freemake Audio Converter from the official developers’ website. Please don’t save the freeware from third-party sites and services. Only on a Freemake page, you will find the newest software version that guarantees safety for your PC and stable performance.

Freemake freeware can be installed on any Windows running PC or notebook. Click the program file to install the software. Everything you need to do is to follow the installation passes by clicking the “Next” button all the time. By default, the tool is installed in Program Files folder on your C drive. However, you can change the path while installing the utility.

Add music files you want to turn to MP3

Finish the installation and wait till the freeware starts. It will happen automatically. If you don’t have time to encode media right now, you can launch the tool later. You will find the Freemake icon on your desktop.

Click “+Audio” button to add your WAVE files to the tool. You may also simply drag-n-drop them. You can add several songs at once and convert them in batch. Please make sure the songs are not protected. The app doesn’t break the protection.

Choose an output extension

Look at the freeware formats panel and find “to MP3” icon. Click it to see the available settings. You will get a drop-down menu with the pre-made conversion profiles. A profile represents a quality you can save your music track to. For example, 320kbps, 256kbps, and others.

Please note that you can encode a low-quality file into a high-quality one. The tool doesn’t increase the original media parameters.

Select final settings

In case none of the ready profiles suits your needs, you can create a custom one. To do it, click the blue gear button under the profile. There will appear a new window where you can set the sample rate, bitrate, and channel.

Finally, select a folder where your new tracks will be saved. Keep in mind that the tool doesn’t add media to the original folder and doesn’t substitute the original songs.

Transcode WAVE media

When everything is ready, click the “Convert” button and start the transcoding process. It may take some time depending on your computer capacity. As soon as the new audio is ready, play it with Windows Media Player or any other music tool.

Encode M4A to MP3 and OGG and MP3 in the same way.
