As you would already know most CD-Recording software uses the .WAV format to record audio as an Audio CD. With MP3s being all the rage there has arisen a need to convert them to .WAVs.
For those of you baffled by the terminology, .WAV files are an audio format. When you copy CDs to your hard drive they will be in this format. In order to save space, the .MP3 format is used to compress the music (MP3s are about 10 times smaller!!), however, as a Flash developer you can only import .AIFFs or .WAVs which is why this tutorial has been written.
First of all you will have to download Winamp. Once you have installed it and started it up, we can move on.
In this tutorial I'll be showing you how to convert an .MP3 song to .WAV. Winamp will allow you to convert multiple songs to .WAV, to do this simply create a play list and the start the conversion.
Pick an .MP3 that you want to convert pressing the eject button (see pic below) on Winamps main window. This will take you to the Open File window. I'm going to use a song from the Flashkit theme CD, Moby's "Play". The track is called "Why does my heart feel so bad?".
