- Occasionally you may need to convert…an audio file from one format to another.…For example, if you ripped an uncompressed…AIF version of a song from a CD,…that file is probably too large to send…attached to an e-mail to a friend.…So you may want to convert it to an AAC or MP3 file.…We saw at the beginning of this chapter…that you can go to Preferences and General,…and then click Import Settings to select the encoder you…want to apply to the music you take off your CDs.…Now these settings also apply to individual tracks…in your library that you may want to convert.…
Maybe for instance I'm in a band and I want to submit…one of my songs to a talent agency's website.…All of my songs are encoded as AACs…and the website requires me to send MP3s.…No problem, I just go into my Preferences…and I change my Import Settings to MP3 Encoder.…I'll leave the rest of the settings the way they are…and click OK and OK.…Now as a general rule you should probably avoid converting…an AAC into an MP3 or vice versa if you want…to maintain the highest sound fidelity.…
