Depends on what youre looking for, what is important to you, what requirements do you have etc..

All that said, you can have a look at audacity:

Audacity is pretty good; and it's freeware. Although they do appreciate a wee donation...?

Thanks for the help. I have Audacity and I use it for editing. Does it allow conversion of wav, flac and other file types to mp3s, and specifically to 320 bts?

Will allow mp3, WAV, and OMG at least.

WAV is considered one of the better options.

Might want to also take a look at CDex. I use it to rip from CD and convert FLAC/MP3 to drop bitrates (to fit more MP3's on a given flash drive...hard to tell the difference between 56K and 320K on a portable device or in my vehicles' infotainment system)...

Thanks. Will Audacity and CDex allow me to convert to 320 bts mp3s. I prefer getting the best quality possible.

Apparently CDex will (but I've never had a reason to):

What is "bts"? I don't recall ever seeing that before.

Oops! I meant bps -- bits per second.

Hmmm. 320 bits per second doesn't make sense.
What quantity did you actually mean?

I'm sure he meant kbps....

https://computer.howstuffworks.com/...

But unless you're extremely finicky, have canine-like hearing, or have unlimited storage capacity, its unlikely you'd notice much difference between 128kbps and 320 (or even flacs for that matter).

At 60 years old, I definitely don't ...

Compared to the 44.1 kbps used for CDs, 320 kbps is quite a leap.

"Compared to the 44.1 kbps used for CDs, 320 kbps is quite a leap."

It's not the same thing. In a lossless format like PCM (Pulse Code Modulation), what CD's use or WAV file, 44.1 kbps is the sampling rate of the analog signal. in a compressed format like mp3 or AAC it's a bitrate for the compression.

If you want the best format, go with lossless Flac format.

Just checked on my copy of Audacity and does allow flac as an export format.
