About Commercial MP3 Converters

April 2011 Update - Many of the listings on this page are old and have some out of date information.  We suggest taking a look at our free mp3 converter listings as you will probably be able to find a program that does what you want without having to pay any money.

Most MP3 programs that require registration fees usually provide a free trial for you to test out beforehand.  Programs today that have no free trial and cost money usually contain many more features than just MP3 conversion.  Some are complete multimedia solutions that handle video as well.  For example, Roxio's old Easy CD Creator product has now become Roxio Creator video, audio, photos, CD and DVD burning, and a whole lot more rolled all into one.

If you are interested in commercial products, we suggest going to and taking a look at products like Nero Multimedia Suite, Roxio Creator, and Sony Acid Music Studio.  There are a lot of great user reviews there that will help you identify the pros and cons of these programs and which might be a good fit for you.  If you can't download and try the product yourself, the next best thing is to rely on honest reviews of people who have bought and used the program themselves.
