Chapter 13. Sound Tracks and MPEG Audio ... > Using QuickTime Player As a Sound-Co...

Using QuickTime Player As a Sound-Conversion Utility

Because QuickTime Player can open many kinds of sound files, you can use it as a sound-conversion utility if you want to convert between AIFF, WAV, µLaw, or (on Mac OS 9 or Windows computers) System 7 Sound formats. You can also convert from an MP3 file to one of these other formats. (You cannot, however, convert from or to MPEG Audio Layer I and II.)

To convert a sound file to a different format:

1.
In QuickTime Player, open or import the file.

2.
From the File menu, choose Export (Figure 13.27) to open the Save dialog box.

Figure 13.27. After opening or importing your sound file, choose File > Export.


3.
Choose the format to which you’d like to convert the file: AIFF, System 7 Sound, WAV, or µLaw (Figure 13.28).

Figure 13.28. Choose the format to which you want to convert the file.


If you want to compress the sound or change its sample size, rate, or number of channels, click the Options button to open the Sound Settings dialog box. Make your changes, and click OK. (See “About the Sound Settings Dialog Box” earlier in this chapter for an explanation of these options.)

4.
Click Save (Figure 13.29).
