Batch conversion wav to MP3

    I need to convert 500 wavs to MP3 format and look for a software. I tried the Sound Forge batch converter but it only allows bitrates up to 128 and I need 256 minimum.

    Any ideas?

    sound forge does 320, vbr, etc..
    what version are you using?
    are you sure you are editing the save parameters in the batch dialog boxes? the options should be there...

    I'm running Sound Forge 8. Don't see any bit rate options higher than 128. Is it because of the old version?

    I use AVS Audio Converter. It's fast and accurate. (it actually works on more than one file at the time to use more than a cpu.

    Thanks for the hints!
    However, I ended up using this: http://www.wav-mp3.com/

    And also ended up with a question: what are you supposed to include in an mp3 when it's supposed to end up in a commercial use (=webshop downloads). On cd you must have the producer code ISRC but how does it work with mp3? The few software I tried didn't offer much more than composer, comment and performer in the ID3 fields.

    I don't know why you have to suffer the loss of clarity, why can't you use the superior wav files?

    are you looking to batch edit those properties? im sure there are batch id3 editors.
    however, soundforge gives you a dozen or more fields to fill in, you should upgrade, sf can do everything youre trying to do from the outset. batch editing, converting, processing, etc...
