Convert audiofiles on Ubuntu by the command line with soundconverter

If you need to convert audio files in another format you can use the tool called “soundconverter”, that you can simply install:

~$ sudo apt-get install soundconverter

Then simply run a command like:

~$ soundconverter -b -m "audio/mpeg" -s ".mp3" /home/laura/cd-wav/*.wav

“-b” stands for batch type

“-m” to specify the mime format.

“-s” to specify the suffix

And move them into another folder eventually:

~$ mv /home/laura/cd-irene/*.mp3 /home/laura/cd-wav.
