To M4A Converter converts audio and video to iTunes-friendly M4A or MP4 audio files. Customizable AAC or ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio) codec, together with export in iTunes, ensure quality and fast conversion of music to your iTunes playlists.
Advanced features, like sound enhancement, audio effects, music organizing, CUE splitter, and batch processing will allow converting your favorite media such as music, podcasts, video records to quality M4A or MP4 audio.
To M4A Converter accepts more than 200 audio and video formats, including but not limited to MP3, MP4, VID, FLAC, FLV, WMA, WAV, AVI, MPG, ASF, MPEG, MPE, MOV, 3GP, M4V, MKV, MOD, OGM, CAF. Please, note: the application does not facilitate downloads from media sharing services, such as YouTube or Vimeo.
To M4A Converter allows to convert the unlimited number of files and folders in one click, and supports multiple conversions simultaneously. If you convert a batch of folders, To M4A Converter will replicate the structure of source folders. It is especially convenient if you need to encode entire music collection to M4A.
EASY TO USE
To start the conversion, just drop files or folders to the app’s window or icon. To M4A Converter will estimate conversion time, and provide details of the conversion of every source file. You will be informed when conversion of all files is finished.
AUTOMATIC OUTPUT SETTINGS
To M4A Converter estimates Bit Rate, Sample Rate, and Channels automatically, and applies optimal settings for AAC or ALAC codecs. It guarantees the best possible sound quality, saves your time and hard drive space.
If you would like to convert to a particular Bit Rate, Sample Rate, Channels, etc., just change Format settings in the Preferences.
You can customize audio effects to improve the quality of output sound: adjust the volume of quiet tracks, trim silence and apply fade in and fade out effects for smooth playback.
TAGGING ON THE FLY
By default, To M4A Converter transfers all tags from source files and creates missing tags and artworks based on filenames, paths, and images in local folders.
If you would like to organize converted music in the more sophisticated way, or if you convert songs from a CD, we recommend enabling option ‘Load tags and artworks from network’ in Preferences. To M4A Converter will identify songs by their “fingerprints”, and search correct tags for those songs in online databases, such as MusicBrainz, AcoustID, and CoverArt.
To M4A Converter can split music albums and DJ sets to separate tracks and import tags from CUE file. To split an audio with CUE file, drop the whole folder or just the CUE file to the app.
INTEGRATION WITH ITUNES
To M4A Converter allows exporting converted tracks to new or existing iTunes playlists by the quick and easy way.
EXTRACT ALL AUDIO TRACKS FROM A VIDEO
Sometimes movies contain a few audio tracks - such as multi-language tracks, or soundtracks for different playback devices. To M4A Converter extracts all soundtracks from videos so that you can choose the most suitable one at the end of conversion.
PERFORMANCE AND STABILITY
To M4A Converter fully utilizes all CPU cores. Encoding in separate processes makes it reliable and “crash free”.

Ratings and Reviews
Excellent for converting various formats to a single format
Perhaps the biggest issue for this app is what it does’t do, namely allow you to select different formats to convert to. Once you’ve got your head around that it’s fine, you can batch process (which I wanted to do to convert for use in my car) and select the quality v file size of the conversion, file location for the conversion etc but everything comes out as a .m4a file. If you want a .wav file you need to buy a different version of the app - really they should allow discounts for users wanting more than one version. The conversion itself went flawlessly and that ultimately is the biggest point, easy to use and it works - happy days.
