Freemake Audio Converter is an ad-supported app; it can be downloaded, installed and used free of charge but it installs Freemoods browser extension, and changes the default home page and default search engine, unless explicitly asked otherwise.[2]

Features[edit]

Freemake Audio Converter accepts over 40 audio file formats such as MP3, WMA, WAV, FLAC, AAC, M4A, OGG, AMR, AC3, AIFF, and M4R. It can convert audio to MP3, WMA, WAV, FLAC, AAC, M4A, and OGG, and can prepare files for playback on various portable media players, such as Zune, Coby, SanDisc, Sansa, iRiver, Walkman, Archos, and GoGear. It can convert audio files into M4A and M4R files for iPad, iPhone, and iPod and automatically adds converted files to the iTunes library.

Freemake Audio Converter features a batch audio conversion mode to convert multiple audio files simultaneously. The program can also combine multiple audio files into a single file.[5] The software includes several ready-made presets for each supported output file format and the ability to create a custom preset with the adjustment of bitrate, audio channels, and sample rate.[6]

The program is capable of extracting the audio soundtrack from different video formats, such as DVD, MP4, AVI, MPEG, H.264, MKV, DIVX, MOV, WMV, VOB, 3GP, RM, QT, and FLV.[7]

The user interface of Freemake Audio Converter is based on Windows Presentation Foundation technology.
