How to Convert Music to MP3
If you don’t know what type of audio formats will be suitable for your device, you should opt for MP3 format in the majority of the cases. Indeed, this format is natively supported by the vast majority of devices and players and offers a good quality without being too large in size.
Icecream Media Converter easily converts any type of audio files to MP3 in a very simple way thanks to user friendly interface. For example, you can convert WAV to MP3, WMA to MP3, etc. The entire process is completed in several simple steps – read more about them in the article below.
