Mr. Force....Thanks...I had no idea these types of programs existed.
I tried your recommended MP3 Convert on my old computer and they did not get along well.
BUT...there is another one that is friendly with my old mac. Ytmp3.
Fast....like in 10 seconds.
Typically, I will run the audio through my board, to adjust eq and levels.
Usually adding low end and matching input levels on Right and Left and then go into pro Tools.
It sounds better this way....but is time consuming.
If you need it quick?.......These programs get it done.....fast.
It's nice to have options. I've used this free software for years and it's never failed to quickly convert. They also have a YT video downloader (and other conversion type products), which gives you 4 (I believe) free videos before you have to buy it for $20.
