WMA to MP3 Converter
WMA to MP3 Converter converts WMA to MP3 and vice versa. The software
also converts WMV (Windows Media Video) to MP3 and ASF (Advanced Systems Format)
to MP3. WMA can encode audio signals sampled at up to 48 kHz with up to two discrete
channels (stereo). WMA 9 introduced variable bit rate (VBR) and average bit rate
(ABR) coding techniques into the MS encoder although both were technically supported
by the original format. WMA 9.1 also added support for low-delay audio, which
reduces latency for encoding and decoding.
WMA to MP3 Converter supports ID3 tag, encodes MP3 as CBR (Constant
Bit Rate) and VBR (Variable Bit Rate), and supports batch conversion.
The software is easy to use, and is fully compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is WMA?
Windows Media Audio (WMA) is an audio data compression technology developed by
Microsoft. The name can be used to refer to its audio file format or its audio
codecs. It is a proprietary technology that forms part of the Windows Media framework.
WMA consists of four distinct codecs. The original WMA codec, known simply as
WMA, was conceived as a competitor to the popular MP3 and RealAudio codecs. WMA
Pro, a newer and more advanced codec, supports multichannel and high resolution
audio. A lossless codec, WMA Lossless, compresses audio data without loss of audio
fidelity (the regular WMA format is lossy). WMA Voice, targeted at voice content,
applies compression using a range of low bit rates. A WMA file is in most circumstances
contained in the Advanced Systems Format (ASF), a proprietary Microsoft container
format for digital audio or digital video. The ASF container format specifies
how metadata about the file is to be encoded, similar to the ID3 tags used by
MP3 files. Metadata may include song name, track number, artist name, and also
audio normalization values. This container can optionally support digital rights
management (DRM) using a combination of elliptic curve cryptography key exchange,
DES block cipher, a custom block cipher, RC4 stream cipher and the SHA-1 hashing
function. See Windows Media DRM for further information.
What is MP3?
MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III, more commonly referred to as MP3, is an audio
coding format for digital audio which uses a form of lossy data compression. MP3
files are the most commonly distributed audio files in the world. The MP3 file
format allows an audio file to be reduced in size, making it easier to download
the file from the Internet and store it on a portable media device. The MP3 file
format is commonly used to store and play audio files on MP3 players, iPods and
cellular phones. The audio files that are saved in MP3 format are compressed.
When recording audio data to a standard CD, one minute of data will take up approximately
10 MB of disc space. With an MP3 file, however, one minute of audio will only
take up 1 MB of space. While there is some loss in quality of sound when recording
MP3 files, it is usually not noticeable to the average listener. The MPEG-1 standard
does not include a precise specification for an MP3 encoder, but does provide
example psychoacoustic models, rate loop, and the like in the non-normative part
of the original standard. At present, these suggested implementations are quite
dated. Implementers of the standard were supposed to devise their own algorithms
suitable for removing parts of the information from the audio input. As a result,
there are many different MP3 encoders available, each producing files of differing
quality. Comparisons are widely available, so it is easy for a prospective user
of an encoder to research the best choice. An encoder that is proficient at encoding
at higher bit rates (such as LAME) is not necessarily as good at lower bit rates.
