    I have a tone of WAVs that I have to convert to MP3. I know iTunes will do it, but I don't want to get them mixed up with my library. I need a mass MP3 encoder that can do the following..

    Allow me to add a tone of files to a queue and encode them.
    Keep the encoded MP3s in the folder that has the same WAV.

    Any recommendations?

    if you would just change your music folder directory temporarily. you could use itunes to do this very easily.

    1) change your directory, to say maybe a new folder on the desktop that you create.

    2)select all the tracks and empty your playlist (you can do this without deleting your files)
    3)load the .wavs into itunes, select all and hit convert to mp3 @ 192kbps. once you do this you can get up and walk away until its finished.

    4)once they are done converting, just batch tag the mp3s by selecting a group of them and editing their info (where it says Get Info) accordingly.

    thats it, very simple.

    Only problem with this is a lot of tracks have the same name. So it'd be hell sorting through all these MP3s with the same name.

    Sort it by date added or type or bit rate.

    yeah, utilize all the facets of the program. there are probably 20 ways to sort the files so that you dont get them unorganized.
