The Full Story

We received a LOT of feedback about the quality settings that we had chosen for our audio conversions.

We initially designed Music Converter and Music Converter Pro to convert for iTunes (and MP3) at the relatively low bit rate of 192k. This was also the maximum that we allowed for custom conversions in Music Converter Pro.

Whats the bit rate? This is simply the quality of the audio file.

192k is what iTunes used to use for music that you purchased. They have since bumped up to 256k.

iPods, iPhones and iPads can play music at up to 320k.

It turns out that there are a lot of you out there who have high quality original music files that you want to convert onto your iPods and iPhones. The default conversion of Music Converter at 192k just didn't cut it.

You spoke, we listened.

Based on your feedback, we decided to completely redevelop the conversion process for AAC audio in order to support 320k bit rate output. This will result in better music quality all round.

We've also increased the output bit rate for MP3, now going up to 320k also.

Finally, we also fixed a few minor bugs, including preservation of metadata for FLAC files.

As always, Music Converter and Music Converter Pro share the same conversion engine. The basic iTunes, AAC and MP3 conversions in Music Converter are full quality.
