FeyConverter is a free versatile utility that not only converts audio files between formats but also rips audio from CDs and provides you with some basic tools to help you organize your music collection. Thus, it can connect to CDDB/freedb and retrieve all the information you need to tag your audio files correctly. It supports both lossy and lossless audio codecs, including MP3, Ogg, WAV, and FLAC.

The program comes with a simple but nice interface, with a clean conversion area where you can build your conversion lists easily. All the main functionality can be accessed either through a series of oversized and well-labeled icons or using the more traditional menu approach. The program allows you to select files in different codecs for conversion, even though all of them will be re-encoded into the selected output format. This can be selected before adding the first track to the list or while selecting the input files. The former option will require you to click on the conversion button to start the re-encoding process, while the latter will trigger the conversion process right away. If so desired, the program can merge all the tracks in the list in one single output file, as well as create a cue sheet and/or a playlist.

When a track is selected, the program will display all the tags associated to it. If these happen to be incomplete or nonexistent, you can tell FeyConverter to look for them in CDDB/freedb, which will allow you to create well-documented new audio tracks. Finally, you can use its built-in audio player to listen to any of the tracks in the list.

FeyConverter is an excellent option for anyone looking for an attractive, fast, and effective audio conversion tool.
