Smart WAV Converter Features

Easy to use wave to mp3 - You can leave the default MP3 settings of this this wav to mp3 conversion tool because they are chosen carefully for your needs.

 

High converting speed - The program uses gogo encoder - based on the "recent" lame 3.88 and offers a very good quality. It is also the quickest wav to mp3 encoder (approximately 2-4 times quicker than the lame - the second best choice).

 

Excellent output quality - For example if you choose MP3 output format the Variable Bitrate (VBR) offers better quality than Constant Bitrate (CBR). This is due to the optimization of the used bitrate with the complexity of the audio signal to encode. "Simple" signals could be encoded with less bitrate, when higher bitrate is used to encode more difficult signals.

 

Batch Conversion Support - You can select all the files from the file dialog and then begin the conversion. Most of the work is done automatically JUST with several mouse clicks.

Variety of Settings

Depending on the output format the other settings differ. First we will discuss MP3 settings:

 

Bit rate. The higher the bit rate, the higher the quality of the MP3 and the file size is bigger. We recommend the rate of 256 kbps. At this rate the quality is similar to a studio record and the compression is about ten times.

 

Maximal bit rate - used when a variable bit rate conversion is selected. The upper setting acts as the minimal bit rate. For maximal bit rate we recommend you 320 kbps.

 

Channel mode. Here you can choose from Mono, Stereo, Joint Stereo, MsStereo and Dual channel. If you choose Joint Stereo the encoder will use the correlation between two channels to reduce the size of the output file. Dual channel files are made of two independent mono channel. Each one uses exactly half of the file bit rate. For example if two different languages are carried in the same bitstream, an appropriate decoder will decode only the chosen language. We recommend the use of the Stereo channel mode setting.

 

Emphasis. Re-equalizes the sound after a Dolby-like noise suppression. This is not used very often and will probably never be. The following noise suppression models are used: none, 50/15ms, and CCITT j.17. We recommend you to choose 'none'.

 

Variable bit rate (VBR) quality. This parameter is used when a variable bit rate is selected. The higher the VBR, the higher the quality of the output MP3 and the files size is bigger. We recommend you to use an average value of 5(min is 0 and max is 9).

 

Use of variable bit rate (VBR). This setting lets the encoder code every frame (piece) of the MP3 file by a different bit rate. It estimates the bit rate in such a way that the given quality (the previous parameter) is achieved for every single frame of the Mp3 file using a minimal bit rate. Thus the file size gets smaller in comparison to the constant bit rate encoding. So we recommend you to use a VBR.

 

Use of low pass filter. This filter attenuates the high frequencies in the output. So we recommend you to use it only when you have selected 128 kbps or lower bit rate output(which means a low quality output).

 

Use psycho-acoustics analysis. This setting lets the encoder to dynamically choose which frequencies to suppress or amplify in order to produce a more pleasant sound for the human ear according to the scientific researches of the human perception of sound. We recommend you to use this feature.

More Settings

If you use the PRO version you will choose between:

 

Uncompressed WAV PCM; Compressed WAV (GSM, ADPCM, DSP and others); MP3 (MPEG 1/2 Layer 3, including VBR); MP2 (MPEG 1/2 Layer 2); VOX (Dialogic ADPCM); RAW audio (PCM, A-Law, U-Law); WMA (Windows Media Audio 9); AVI (audio stream); Ogg Vorbis (ver 1.0); MPC (MusicPack); G.726, G.723, G.721; AIFF (Apple); AU (UNIX).

 

Other format specific settings:

 

WAV to MP3 settings:

Smart Converter PRO supportes 4 wav formats: Microsoft PCM, Microsoft ADPCM, DSP Group TrueSpeech, GSM. You can select the frequency, channel, bits per sample of the output wave file.

 

OGG settings:

OGG Quality: This is the only one OGG setting. It specifies the quality of the output OGG file. The higher the quality,the bigger the size of the file. We recommend you an average value of 5 (min. is 0, max. is 9)
