MP3 Bitrate Changer
Want to know how we got upon the idea of creating such a program? I wanted to change the bit rate for my mp3 files from 320 kbps to 128. It would allow me to reduce the file size almost twice and a half! Unfortunately, I was not able to find any suitable conversion program that would keep the ID3 tags of the old file. The utmost I could get was to keep the song title and the singer's name. It didn't satisfy me at all. It meant that I had to lose such information as the song text, cover art, and many other additional data that were in the source file.
After several months of working on the matter we succeeded in releasing the first version of our program. It offered the possibility to change the bit rate and frequency of a file keeping ID3-tags, if they were in the source file, unchanged! Now it was not necessary to type in the data manually. With time we extended the functionality of 1st Multiformat Converter and CD Ripper. Now it is possible to change the bit rate for other formats as well, for example, for WMA and OGG. There is an option of saving your favourite formats with their settings and then just use these presets for faster processing. For example, you can specify what conversion type to choose - CD quality or low quality.
