How to Convert AAC to MP3 for Free in 2023

In this article, I’ll help you to figure out how to convert AAC files to MP3 Free. I will present you with two effective audio professors – WorkinTool VidClipper and iTunes, and show you how to use them. Hope it can bring helpful information to you.

What IS AAC File?

AAC, short for Advanced Audio Coding, is an audio compression format specially designed for sound data. Similar to the MP3 format, but greatly improved in performance, AAC uses a completely new algorithm for encoding, which is more efficient and more cost-effective. Moreover, it can maintain a quality that is almost indistinguishable from the original audio source. AAC is becoming popular, and more and more music players on the computer support AAC, such as Apple iTunes.

Why Turn AAC into MP3?

Compared with MP3 format, AAC audio has better sound quality and can save about 30% storage space and bandwidth. Although AAC audio file is much better than MP3 audio files to some extent, it is still not as widespread as MP3 audio files. I believe you may not have heard of the AAC format, but you must have known something about MP3. What’s more, MP3 is far more compatible than AAC on older devices. It can be opened and played on almost all cell phones, music players, and car entertainment centers, while AAC is in favor of far fewer devices.

As for the normal quality, it will convert to a file with a smaller size but a little lower quality. And as for the standard quality, the new file’s size and quality are in the middle. Except for the default mode, if you are proficient in making audio, you can set the encoder, sample rate, channel, and bit rate by yourself.
