Thread: AIFF to MP3
03-29-2004, 04:12 AM #1AIFF to MP3
Okay, there was a similar thread to this, but when I add it to iTunes and do the "Convert to MP3" my song goes completely slow!
Basically I'm making a couple mixes from Soundtrack and it saves it as an AIF file but I want it into an MP3 file w/ out loss of quality.

What do you mean by your song going completely slow? You mean it imports slowly, or the actual speed of the song slows down?I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

mp3 = loss in quality my friend. if you can help it, keep your stuff in AIF.
I seem to recall a free aif->MP3 i downloaded from cnet that runs in OS9. When I get home I'll throw up a link, because that seemed to work fine for me.

iTunes will convert it for you to burn an MP3 cd.

Check your options in preferences : importing : custom. What are the settings there?
I don't know how or why iTunes slows the song down... the tempo is actually slower?I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

Yeah, it actually goes slower, it goes from 3.5min to 5.5min and the tempo is slower..
Maybe I'm not saving it right out of soundtrack?

That's very weird... I have no idea why it's doing that. All I can suggest is check both the export options in soundtrack and the import options to make sure there's nothing weird. Import mp3s at a minimum of 192kbps if you want decent quality.I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

I hate it set to 320, so the quality should be fine :-/
*sigh* I just don't know

Try doing this with another song and see if yer having the same problems.
There should be no problem doing this as long as you've set yer import settings correctly. I've done this more times than I can count and have never had a problem.
At least try another song and see if it continues to the be problem; my guess is that you've just got a setting in itunes wrong.
