As you've surely deduced from its name, this program allows you to convert audio files from one format into another. Arial Audio Converter supports all popular audio formats, like MP3, WMA, WAV, and Ogg, as well as some less-known formats, such as G.721, G.723, VOX, and ALAW. The program provides batch processing and high-speed on-the-fly conversion as well.

Arial Audio Converter offers a friendly and self-explanatory user interface, though its visual design could be improved. You can add all the source files you want to convert at once using the "Add Files" dialog or by dragging and dropping them from Windows Explorer. Even though the program transfers the ID3 tag information from the source to the output files, you can edit this information on each file individually. Besides, the program includes a simple yet functional audio player that allows you to preview any source file on your conversion list.

Finally, Arial Audio Converter allows you to select the output format and folder. This tool also provides a "Settings" window with one tab for each supported output format. You can use it to configure the output parameters, such as the sampling rate, the constant and variable bit rates, and the number of channels. Of course, these parameters will vary depending on the output format selected.

In short, even though Arial Audio Converter needs some visual enhancements, it is a full-featured audio converter which includes very important features, such as ID3 tag edition and support for some less-known audio formats.
