I also recently took apart my collection of old tracks from my iPod. I am using an AIMP player which has encoding tools. So I easily changed the format from mp3 to mp3 and created a music logo. This process takes a matter of minutes.
So I've found my old iTunes login from way back in early 2000's (that's old in computer time lol) when iTunes first came out. And I've got a ton of songs I purchased from it. Well I've stopped using it a long time ago. But I'd like to convert those songs to mp3 and keep them since I purchased them.
I've been researching how to convert them but I've come across most pay for software, which I'm find with. But it's expensive for a one time weekend project that I'll never use again. And some of the sites look dated and not sure if I want to hand over my financial information know what I mean?
Does anyone know here of a free way to convert AAC files to mp3? Any tips and suggestions would be great thanks!
