Free M4a to MP3 Converter is a small but interesting tool that features the possibility of converting files within a matter of seconds. This way, users have the possibility to use tracks from the iTunes store, for example. These tunes come in the M4a format, and this is the standard for the audio track of MP4 videos. It has been chosen as a music distribution format because unlike MP3s, it features a lower loss of quality. However, they are also larger and on various devices, they might be unreliable as the memory can get filled quite fast.
Other formats can be converted to MP3 and even to WAV formats, but M4a are the most targeted ones as input formats, as they are more popular. The interface of the application is really simple and it features two toolbars that have various buttons added onto them. Here are all of the main functions of the tool and with ease, users can add one or multiple music files that have to be converted. There is also a mini media player added that allows users to listen to the tracks both before and after the conversion process.
The conversion process is a really simple one and there are not too many settings that can be changed. 320kbps is the standard when converting M4a to MP3 but this can be changed, so more users can benefit from the functionality of the tool. Other than that, the process requires just a single mouse click to get it started and a notification will pop up on the screen when everything is done, if the user has minimized the application. Multiple language support is available and a couple of other downloads are featured in the bottom area of the screen, in order to add more functionality to the base one.
