SoundConverter is the leading audio file converter for the GNOME Desktop. It should be your Swiss Army Knife for audio.
[In conjunction with the parent article: Linux Audio Tools.]
It reads anything GStreamer can read (Ogg Vorbis, AAC, MP3, FLAC, WAV, AVI, MPEG, MOV, M4A, AC3, DTS, ALAC, MPC, Shorten, APE, SID, MOD, XM, S3M, etc…), and can rewrite to Opus, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, WAV, AAC, and MP3 files.
It’s pretty easy to use. On occasion, I will receive files in iTunes format, or Windows Media format, but I will want to reconvert to the standard mp3 format. This is the tool to use.
- To install, either download the installer file from their website, or
- install via the command line interface:
sudo apt-get install soundcoverter.
