How do I convert MPC to MP3?
MPC is a lossy audio codec also known as Musepack, MPEG+, MP+, MPEGplus. It
was developed on the base of MP2 codec, but has gone a long way since then. MPC
files can be easily found on the internet, however, the format is less popular
comparing to MP3 and is supported by fewer devices and software players. Because
of this, you may want to convert MPC to MP3 format.
To accomplish the task, you will need an MPC converter tool like the one
offered by AudioConverter Studio.
Step 1: Download and install the program.
Download AudioConverter Studio to some folder on your computer. Run the
downloaded file and follow on-screen instructions to install the application.
Step 2: Start the program. Select MPC files to convert.
Launch AudioConverter Studio. The program will start in the wizard mode. If
you see no wizard, press "Ctrl" + "W" on your keyboard, or simply select "File"
- "Show Wizard".
The default action is to convert a single file, or a group of files (1).
Let's click "Next" (2).
This takes us to a usual "Open" window.
We browse to the folder where our MPC files are stored, select the files and
The files will be added to the conversion list:
You can add more files, or remove some mistakenly added files from the list.
We don't need to do that, so we simply click "Next".
Step 3: Set output folder and filename format.
AudioConverter Studio offers us to select output folder and filename format.
Output folder is the folder where converted MP3 files will be placed (1).
If the converted files can't be saved (you get errors and no files), check
your permissions on the folder. It may be a good idea to set output folder
inside your home directory, especially on Windows Vista computers.
You can set "Old filename" as filename format. In fact, the program can do
more than conventional converters here, it can rename files while converting and
create a folder structure, but your files must have information like title,
artist, year etc. in their tag-fields. If no such information is present, the
old filename will be used.
Click "Next" to continue.
Step 4: Set MP3 quality.
Now let's select "MP3" from the dropdown list. Additionally we can set
parameters of the format, like bit rate, frequency, mode.
The defaults are good for most cases, but we set bit rate to 192 Kbit/s to
get a bit better quality. The full range of MP3 bit rates is available (up to
If you want to convert whole files, don't check "Prelisten conversion".
Step 5: Convert MPC to MP3.
The program shows a summary of our settings.
Check if everything's OK, then click "Finish" to start converting MPC to MP3.
