Batch converting audio files to MP3

If you’re converting a single file, is a great online tool. However, for batch conversion, you’ll want to look at one or more of the following tools:


dbPowerAmp is a great conversion utility


While dbPowerAmp says Linux is supported through Wine, I’ve found that soundconverter works wonderfully. To install it:

sudo apt-get install soundconverter

Next, just run it. You can select your input files and directories in the GUI. By default, soundconverter produces .ogg output. If you want mp3, simply select it in Edit > Preferences
