Well, i found this audio converter output quality is too lower. Actually i usually use a video converter and extract audio mp3 songs for my ipod and iPhone from www.mac-videoconverter.com like youtube video, google video or yahoo video etc. The output audio quality is much better than this WAV to MP3 converter. I hope this one is fully free for all users.

I know it's kinda late to post this, anyway somebody may find it useful. If it's been previously posted, I apologize, but I ain't got time to review all the thread.

I DL from GOTD, and the install Setup.exe wasn't able to establish communication with GOTD or the developer or whatever, therefore the install process stopped there, with no solution whatsoever. So I went to the developer's site, DL the same program over there, installed and used the key provided by the GOTD DL, and voila! FWIW, I will attain to the GOTD policies when using this program.

@Developer: OK, yes there's a lot of freeware and assorted resources to do this conversion. Anyway I'm testing your software. Thanks!

@GOTD: again, thanks for approaching the end users and developers. Keep up the good work! And please, be advised your setup.exe failed this time. Nothing you can't solve, but please take notice :)

I don't often comment on this site, but given the disgraceful way some of you are carrying on, I'll say this.
We are here commenting on the Software presented to us, good or bad remember. Somebody in this case GAOTD and the Developer has kindly offered this Software up for Free today, I'd say give it a try and then comment but only relevant to the software, not bringing up other alternatives, we are not testing.

Their websites (one for each of many converters all sold separately) have no ratings from any of the top ratings companies- just a series of big grayed out question marks. One of the sites is offering a package deal for free until 10-25-11, but with no site reviews and the apparent haste of setup, I am hesitant to download the files to my computer, even for free. And there are so many good free programs out there that are clean and work great. This is a pass, but thanks anyway.

I agree with #31, 34, 38 - this is definitely not a legitimate product/company. Just out of curiosity after reading everyone's comments I DL it to see what it really did (confident that my PC is very secure)& the file was CONTAINED AND REMOVED IMMEDIATELY!

When I first discovered this site I was ecstatic (I find cool, free & safe apps/SW all the time just being in this line of work, but I thought "how wonderful is it to have another source with product reviews right there?!"), but lately have been less than thrilled with the product's usefulness & legitimacy (this was NOT the first time my PC reacted like that by a DL from here!).

On another subject, did no one else read/catch the absurdity of #9? I wasn't aware that PCs had been around for 70 yrs, much less digital forms of music!

"22.This is probably dumb question, but could one of you dudes with more experiance explain benefit converting wav to mp3? I kinda like wav flies, seem to be good quality sound and smaller in mb size!!"

#22. That is sorta a dumb question. The purposes of converting from WAV to MP3 is taking an uncompressed audio file to a compressed file by removing the high and low sound outside human hearing range. The WAV is *not* smaller in space as you have said. That is why MP3s are so commonly used now - small size (~1/8 the original size), w/no discernable loss of quality to the average ear. It's best to keep WAV for certain things, esp. when the original output is required, but not for most consumer listening purposes.

GOTD - Maybe you have been scammed.

The included "registration code" does not work for me anyway.

This is what happened:
The install process is done.
The "registration" using the code in the readme text file is done.
The software asks user to restart the program after "registration".
This is done.

When I actually test it with a music file to convert to see if it really works, the scam reveals itself. When the convert command is pressed, a dialogue box pops up and insists that user REGISTER THE SOFTWARE once again before it is willing to proceed with any music conversion.
I gamely key in the "registration" code again.
And restart the software.
Nothing happens. The software is back to "Unregistered version"

A reinstall leads to "Illegal Registration Code"

But not great loss here, as so many have commented there are many other outstanding Freewares are available that do a much better music conversion.

Does the job well and very fast. Resulting file size is a little large but other than that it does exactly what their site claims, many, many format convert options. I don't think I would pay the price for what is available free, but free, it is great and I'll take it!!!

Many thanks GOTD and WAV to MP3.

I am amazed at the numerous negative and dismissive comments on this great piece of software. I have installed it to my Winows 7 Professional (x64-bit) system where it works flawlessly. It has a nice interface and converts to 9 output formats, including batch mode conversion. A very useful addition to my multimedia toolbox.

Regardless of its selling price (now $29.95), today it is offered free as another excellent GiveAwayoftheDay. So why so much denigration and ingratitude by so many? This is very nice FREE software for goodness sake! And it leaves many of the other 'free' conversion programs for dead.

I give a a big 'thank you' to both GOTD and WAV to MP3. And, no, I am not part of either organisation... just a grateful punter!

@22 - Mp3 is capable of compression that wav files are not. So at the same bitrates, mp3 will always be SMALLER than wav.
On the flipside, mp3 encoding settings can also be tweaked so none of the audio data is lost making quality on par with WAV.

Lookup lossless vs lossy if you want more information.

That said, this download (like too many other from GAOTD) is pointless. As so many others have already pointed out, there are MANY free versions.
There's already a REALLY good chance that you already have iTunes on your computer, so if you want mp3 format, just go into it's advanced settings and change the encoding setting to mp3. Then conversion is as simple as a right-click in iTunes and selecting "Create mp3 version".
Audacity will do conversion too, if you don't like iTunes (or are using an OS which doesn't support it).

This program is much better than most people are giving it credit, yes there are free programs that do similar and $40 is rather steep, BUT it does the job efficiently and quickly. Easy interface and enables you to convert from a number of formats to other formats. It is not just WMA to MP3. It is worth $10 and is better than most free programs I have used. Give it a chance guys - it also provides a serial number so could be re-installed at a later date.

@33 - While I agree that some of the comments could have been a little more tactful, the bottom line is that is redundant software. The high price it is offered at - given the fact that there's freeware out there that does exactly the same thing, AND the fact that most people's computers come with programs that will natively convert WAV to MP3 - is what is raising the red flag among the regular posters here.

We all like to see developers come out with new and useful software, or even software that compiles functions in a more useful manner; this software just seems to be an attempt to grab some money from unsuspecting customers. I would suggest that they halve their price, revamp their website to list what formats the software handles, rename their product, and then perhaps folks will feel that they are getting value for their money even if there are freeware alternatives.

BTW, you can delete MSCOMCTL.OCX from the install directory as long as it exists in the C:\windows\system32 directory and the WOW64 directory if you're using the 64-bit edition of Windows.

The skinh.dll and skinh.she files can be deleted as well.

Both FLVToMP3 anf WAVtoMP3 can be installed in the same directory, but install the FLVtoMP3 first.

these programs were coded in Visual Basic 6.........almost a decade old.

Windows (at least the older versions) already has a built-in mp3/wav converter.

If you don't have that, then there are still other freeware audio converters that can do so much more than this one.

Whoever pays for this one is out of their mind.

Hi All
I fully agree with what you are saying about the price and about the limited use this program offers. I would expect more of a paid for program too.. That being said, i think that the comments are not constructive and are more of a bashing to the developers. The suggestions are good but the way that most comments and suggestions are written, they show the developers that some people are just not willing to either test or try the software, but just bash the developers.
Give them some good ideas, like some have and quite repeating what the others have said, from the first 12 comments 6 or 7 say lower the price, come one, it was said the first, second and third time.
I am not the developer or affiliated with them, nor any of the others that offer their products here, but constructive criticism and comments should be the norm.

Tried to install it out of curiosity, to see what the "20" formats were that it also converts (per the product's website). The setup.exe file got hung up after connecting to GAOTD (this was on Vista, so I had run it as an admin), NIS' Sonar module triggered an alert, then I got an error code in NIS, had to download and run the Norton Power Eraser software to clear it up.

Upshot is, I still don't know what this software actually does, but I'm not going to attempt a reinstall. As others have said, there are plenty of other freeware and shareware programs out there that do the same thing. I happen to prefer dBpoweramp myself.

I'll have to say in favor of this program that it is user-friendly which is rare among many other converters. And there is more to it than only wav. to mp3 conversion. Many other formats are included.

A handy tool, but maybe for half the price...

I kinda like to think those who point out FREE programs, I like the EAC app the best. But, as far as lashing out at the developer for pricing his/her program isn't fair. I kinda look at it like this. Many people rush out and spend hundreds of dollars on Web editors, graphic editors, etc. Like Dream Weaver, Photoshop. When there are MANY free apps that do the same for free. You will always get those who say "but DW does this, PS does that". I use MS free Web expressions for my web page development, GIMP for my graphics/photo editing just to name a couple. But I don't put down Adobe for pimping a 400.00 program when a free one will do the same. I'll down load this app, see if it works the same as my free ones and leave it in my list of tools. If I don't need it, I'll never use it. But just like those Free programs, there will always be that one file that only IT will be able to handle when the others fail. JMO

WAV To MP3 is a portable ffmpeg front end that imports audio from several audio & video formats & then outputs several audio formats. It'll also do trimming & batch process files/folders.

Ffmpeg [ffmpeg.org] itself is a very widely used, free code project that's used for audio/video handling, encoding, conversion etc., & for MP3 uses Lame, arguably the most popular MP3 encoder available. If there's a downside IMHO it's that ffmpeg is focused more on video than audio, & some purely audio apps offer more audio-related features &/or capabilities, e.g. Audacity also uses Lame, so MP3 results should be pretty much identical, but as a full audio editor Audacity has [Many] more audio-related features/capabilities.

Installed by default to C:\WAV To MP3, the program folder holds 16 files, 1 folder, ~12 MB, while only an uninstall key is added to Windows registry.

GOTD has featured several ffmpeg-based video converters, but most all of them limit your audio format choices, & many don't offer audio-only output at all. WAV To MP3 is one solution, & being portable, an easy one to check out. The alternative I've been using for some time now for conversions is the free LameXP [ videohelp.com/tools/LameXP ], available as a [slower starting] portable or with a regular installation.

I have to agree with all the above! What confuses me is when I visit their website it looks like this software converts several different formats to MP3 other than just WAV. It also looks like it will output several other formats than just MP3. Which is still not very impressive as most other free or cheaper audio conversion software has multiple input and output formats. Why they are marketing this as just a WAV to MP3 format is beyond me. There website description of this software says "input more than 20 formats, output support, MP3,WMA, FLAC, AC3, AMR". However even this doesn't fit the forty buck price tag with so much free or nearly free conversion software available.

I apologize for not downloading this one and giving it a try but it does nothing to improve my existing audio conversion capability. Thanks GAOTD and WAVMP3.net

Like my school reports used to say - 'could do better'.
Suggest Freac - free audio converter. http://www.freac.org/

'fre:ac is a free audio converter and CD ripper with support for various popular formats and encoders. It currently converts between MP3, MP4/M4A, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, WAV and Bonk formats.

With fre:ac you easily rip your audio CDs to MP3 or WMA files for use with your hardware player or convert files that do not play with other audio software. You can even convert whole music libraries retaining the folder and filename structure.

The integrated CD ripper supports the CDDB/freedb online CD database. It will automatically query song information and write it to ID3v2 or other title information tags.'

It is also portable.

I'm afraid I have to agree with the majority. There are so many free and low-cost audio/multimedia converters available that a dime a dozen is almost in the HIGH price range (okay, perhaps a bit of an exaggeration, but I think you get the point). With a price of $40, people are going to expect this software to be able to colorize old black-and-white movies and get Dolby™-quality sound out of a 3" paper cone speaker while they're at it - not end up with a converted audio file that has a noticeable degradation in quality!

If you're going to ask for more, you have to DELIVER more! That's a hard and fast rule in business, and it's especially so in such a highly competitive niche as media converter software. Unless you do something that nobody else CAN, or if they CAN do it you can do it BETTER, FASTER, and/or CHEAPER, then you'll be better off finding a different way to make your fortune.

But that's a big part of the whole GOTD experience - we visitors have the opportunity to evaluate "paid" versions of the publisher's software, with the expectation that some of us will comment on our experiences with it - both positive and negative.

This can be a two-edged sword for the developer/publisher, since (presumably) they have no control over these comments, except to reply to them. On the one hand, rave reviews and broad acceptance of the software could be the beginning of a huge groundswell that results in record sales and brand recognition. However, a poor reception due to shortcomings in design or function can have exactly the opposite effect.

Remember - BAD news typically makes it all the way around the world in the same amount of time that it takes GOOD news just to get across the street! I hope the developers will take these comments to heart and begin the process of making their product better - preferably to the point where most people would consider a $40 price to be bargain for what it does for them.

Bottom line - - - - > Always strive to deliver real value! Give people your best, and not just enough to keep them from complaining. You'd be surprised by just how much money is actually made by going the "extra mile" - but you have to go that distance yourself in order to find out!

Smallest and portable MP3 WAV tool has to be the commandline lame encoder utility. It also produces the best MP3 encoding available to date and is also used by tech review sites, such as tomshardware to compare different systems. FLAC is also available as a portable commandline utility. You could fit both of them AND a custom batchfile, to make using them simpler, on a 3.5" floppy. If someone wants to or has some extra free time on their hands, they can use e.g. Sonic Visualiser (also free) to compare the output from LAME and today's giveaway to see if there is a noticeable difference in sound quality.

I agree with those claiming this is very common freeware with a price tag (except here, today only!).

My suggestion to make it worth some money to people: add in a midi to wav, or midi to mp3 converter which does not need to take as long as the file itself plays to convert.

A batch midi to wav converter would be very useful, wav to mp3 is so common in freeware that the ridicule here is only going to increase all day.

Pay for mp3 converter is little crazy.

There is free and very good converter Lame and others from the year 1996.

And if you focusing on quality (which i strongly suggest in this time when is HDD space almost for a penny) use a FLAC! Flac providing its own front-end (sure open-source) so why to use other not tested SQ with possibly tons of bugs...

If you need to convert your audio CD, use EAC with FLACs as the output. I wrote a manual, how to set-up the configuration:

The program actually converts a whole range of audio formats to other formats, not just WAV to MP3. The developer needs to change the title to reflect this. I'd also drop the price because there are several freeware audio converters such as:



QTFairUse for ITunes

Chameleon Audio Converter
M4a to MP3 Converter

RiverPast Wave@MP3

CUE Tools
Shuangsoft WAV to MP3 Converter
Helium audio converter
AudioMove
Midi to Wav
Free Audio Converter
MEDA WMV/WMA/PM3 Converter
FreeMPC
Koyote Free MP3 WMA Converter
Mobile AMR Converter


I'm not sure whether the coding I've used above for Format Factory and Audacity have worked in the list above so I've also posted the links with no coding below:

Audacity:

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/


Format Factory:

http://www.formatoz.com/download.html



There are loads of improvements that could be made to this software. I've added several suggestions to the Idea Informer above. Hopefully the developer with take action on some of them, otherwise I can't see this software surviving because there's too much competition, not only are there better freeware programs, but many other commercial iterations of this software are available for less money and are better equipped with more tools.

The program needs something special like the inclusion of a suite of software tools such as cutting tools, DVD burning and ripping software and possibly even other media format conversions such as video editing etc.

Free program EAC (Exact Audio Copy) converts WAV to MP3 using lame. I`ve been using it for years, grabbing audio CDs and converting them or folders of WAV files in best quality.

Which converter is used by "WAV to MP3"? It can't be (free) lame, as lame's quality is superb!

For me, the software of choice for this conversion job will be
Audacity, which is free and best of the lot.

I'm sorry, but with literally hundreds of free alternatives that actually do more, how can anyone possibly justify $40 for this product? I think I'll stay with Format Factory. Thanks anyway GAOTD

Y'all have gotta be nuts.

WAV to MP3 has been free and simple in so many packages [CD-rippers, too many transcoding utilities to count- if you don't feel like using the codec more directly] for so many years [decades?] charging for it now is absurd at best. And FLAC, while newer, is just another codec.

just another registation skin wrapped around the basic sound libraries so many other freewares use- avcodec.dll,avformat.dll,avutil.dll, avcodec.lib.avformat.lib,avformat.lib...

no way.

I have been converting my music to MP3 for years. There are Many programs that can do this. You can do it with freeware Audacity and not long ago we had Sound Editor PRO on GOTD which is an excellent program. I has a bunch of features and I plan to buy a copy because the price was very reasonable. A program that does one thing only and cost $40 does not appeal to me. This is a good add on to another program.

Perhaps the program can do what it says, but the bad news for the creators is that there are soooo many free converters, you'd really need to explain why one would normally pay $40 for such a limited tool, whereas Format Factory (and others) can do a wide range of converting, and is available free of charge.
