Today’s race to bring new audio formats to the plate has never yet ceased or slackened in pace for one moment. In fact, the exact opposite is true. As time goes by, the rate of new development is staggering and, sadly, people often end up getting confused by the sheer variety of competing formats they are forced to deal with on a day to day basis. Thus far, that old warhorse MP3 has certainly proved to be worth its weight in gold, and it remains the top dog format round about now, but you should keep an eye on Apple’s iTunes, because this is one format that is gaining ground at quite a phenomenal rate, which is no doubt a consequence of the stunning sales figures for the Cupertino-based tech giant’s gadgets like the iPod and the iPhone, not to mention the high popularity of the iTunes music service itself.

The bottom line is that, if you want to convert music files stored in M4A/AAC format into tried and trusted MP3, you are really looking at a simple-to-use, speedy yet affordable software tool. It is fair to say that the Free M4A to MP3 Converter fits the bill one hundred percent, and consequently it sneaks in under the wire as prime candidate for pride of place in anyone’s media software armory. The name actually couldn’t be more descriptive, because it won’t cost you a dime, and its focus is narrow. It simply gives you the necessary tools to perform file conversion from M4A into MP3, plus AAC into MP3 or WAV. Furthermore, you are at liberty to play back converted music files using the player that’s a core element of the program.

Using this program is almost child’s play. All you have to do is browse your way round your computer looking for AAC and M4A audio files. Next, you add the files to a conversion list (alternatively, you can simply drag and drop them using Windows Explorer and the converter’s work area). The next step is to define where the output file is to be saved, along with the desired audio parameters. Finally, you hit the all-important “Convert” button, which can easily be found on the program’s main toolbar.

Incidentally, this program can also handle M4B files. These rather unusual files are sometimes used in audio books, but you’ll have no trouble zapping these across to MP3, if you so desire. By the way, if the original AAC or M4A audio had tags for information about songs, you’ll be relieved to hear that such tags are preserved in the converted file.

This fantastic program currently supports eleven different languages, which are ever so easy to switch when you need to. If you want a free-of-charge, fast, stable M4A converter, you have no need to look any further than the Free M4a to MP3 Converter. It offers the bare minimum in terms of onboard features – it simply does what it says on the tin. You should certainly give it a try, and the chances are that you will not regret it in a month of Sundays.
