How to Convert MP4 Video Files into MP3 Audio Files?
In this section, you’ll find various easy options on how to convert mp4 to mp3for mp4 to mp3 converter that you can implement as quickly as possible:
1. Convert MP4 to MP3 Via Windows Media Player
If you’re a Windows user, you can do it easily via the in-built applicationcalled Windows Media Player. And here’s how to do that:
2. Convert MP4 into MP3 Via VLC Media Player
The VLC media player is profound as well as a common media player used by manyWindows users. It also has this in-built facility to let you convert any videofile into an audio file with easy steps. Here’s what you need to do:
Finding Audio Files in the Files Tab
Open the Browser by clicking on the [Browse] button, or press [F5] on thekeyboard, and click on the [Files] button at the top of the Browser to viewfiles and locations on your computer. You also can press [F9] on the keyboardto open the Files tab directly.By default, the Files tab displays the following sub-tabs: * Desktop Displays any folders on your desktop and allows access to their files. Note that this will not display shortcuts or aliases. * Documents Displays the contents of the Documents folder for the logged-in User. * Studio One Content sub-tab, as specified in Studio One/Options/Locations/User Data setup menu (macOS: Preferences/Locations/User Data), which contains all Songs, Projects, Shows, Presets, and other Studio One files. * Sound SetsContains all sound sets installed from your PreSonusAccount, including loops, instruments, and samples. * Volumes Contains all folders and files within your computer’s file system, and also provides access to the contents of any attached storage devices.Click on any folder to view its contents, as you would with Windows Exploreror macOS Finder.When browsing Audio Loop files and REX audio files, note the drop-down arrowthat expands to reveal the slices of the REX file. If you drag in either ofthese types of files, the slices are contained in an Audio Part.When moving files onto or within your computer while Studio One is open, youmay need to refresh the Browser to see the subsequent changes. If youencounter this, [Right]/[Ctrl]-click in the Browser and select Refresh.
Previewing Audio Files
When an audio file is selected in the Browser, the bottom window of theBrowser becomes the Preview Player, displaying transport controls andinformation about the selected file. When the Preview Player appears, you canlisten to the selected file directly within the Browser. To start fileplayback, double-click on the file in the Browser or click on the Play buttonin the Preview Player with the desired file selected.Preview Player playback is independent of the main Song playback; notice theplayback-position cursor does not move across the Arrange view whilepreviewing a file. The Preview Player has its own playback-position indicatorthat moves left to right to indicate the current playback position in theselected file. The position indicator can be clicked-and-dragged to navigatethrough the selected file during playback. A volume fader controls theplayback level of the Preview Player.Preview Player playback can be synced to Song playback to allow auditioning offiles along with Song playback. Click on the Play at Song Tempo button, whichis engaged by default, to allow the Preview Player to sync to the current Songtempo.If the currently selected fileâs tempo is known, and Play at Song Tempo isengaged while previewing, the file is timestretched on the fly to match thecurrent Song tempo. To preview while hearing your Song, start Song playbackfirst, and then select a file to preview.To loop the selected file during preview playback, click on the PreviewPlayerâs Loop button, which is engaged by default. Looping during previewplayback makes it easy to listen to the selected file in the context of yourSong.An easy way to audition many audio loops from a single folder, such as a looplibrary, is to set the left and right locators around the range of the Songinto which you plan to import the loop, then loop playback in the Transportwithin that range. Next, preview the first loop in the folder and then use theup and down arrow keys on your keyboard to cycle through the loops in thatfolder.
Importing Audio Files into Your Song
Importing an audio file from the Browser into your Song is as easy as clickingon the file and dragging it into the Arrange view of the Song. When the fileis dragged to empty space, a mono or stereo Audio Track is created with thefile placed on it as a new Audio Event, located at the position to which itwas dragged. When the file is dragged to an existing Audio Track, it is placedas a new Audio Event on that Track, at the position to which it was dragged.If you import a stereo file to a mono Track, the Event created is stereo, butthe output is mono, since the Track is mono. If you import a mono file to astereo Track, the output is dual mono, that is, the same signal equally onboth sides.If you wish to replace the audio clip associated with an Event with anotheraudio clip from the Browser, you can hold [Alt]/[Opt] while you drag-and-dropthe new audio onto the Event to be replaced. This effectively swaps out theexisting audio with the new audio, and the edits to the Event stay intact.It is possible to select multiple files in the Browser and drag all of them inat once, making the transfer of recordings done in another DAW a one-clickprocess. If you would like to insert multiple audio clips, selected in thebrowser, to the same Track, with one placed after the other across thetimeline, hold [Ctrl]/[Cmd] while dragging the audio clips to empty space on aTrack. This can be helpful if you want to quickly drag in multiple variationsof similar audio, or for laying out an entire song structure in one move.For virtual instruments that support audio-file importing using drag-and-drop(such as many drum samplers), you can drag-and-drop audio files from theBrowser directly onto the instruments to load audio files.You can also [Right]/[Ctrl]-click on any audio file and select Send to NewSampleOne to instantly load the file as a sample in the built-in SampleOneâ¢virtual instrument. If you do this with an Audio Loop or REX audio file, itsslices are automatically mapped across the keyboard (up to 96 slices).
Automatic MP3 to WAV Conversion
When you import an MP3 file into a Song, or any other file type, it isautomatically converted to a WAV file. The WAV file created during conversionis stored in the Media folder of the Song in which the file was imported andhas the same name as the original file, with the .wav file extension. Thenewly created WAV file inherits the Songâs sample rate and resolution (bitdepth), as set in Song/Song Setup.
Audio File Operations
Audio files can be processed directly from the Browser using the[Right]/[Ctrl]-click contextual menu as follows. Note that in every case, theoriginal audio file is left unmodified. It is possible to select multipleaudio files of the same format and apply processing to all of them at once. * Split to Mono Files Split a multi-channel audio file into separate mono files, one for each channel. * Merge to Stereo File Merge a pair of L/R mono audio files to a single stereo file. Select two mono audio files, then [Right]/[Ctrl]-click and select Merge to Stereo File. * When merging mono files that are not marked with the .L and .R suffixes to stereo in the Browser, the first selected file becomes the L channel, and the second becomes the R channel. * Convert to Wave File Convert a non-Wave format audio file to a Wave file. This can also be used to flatten sliced files such as Audio Loop and REX, wherein the slices are rendered at their original tempo. * Convert to Audio Loop Convert any audio file to an Audio Loop.
Importing MIDI Files into Your Song
To import a MIDI file using the Browser, navigate to the desired file, as youwould for an audio file, and click-and-drag it into your Song. If the MIDIfile is dragged to an empty space in the Arrange view, a new Instrument Trackis created with that file placed on the Track at the position to which it wasdragged. If the file is dragged to an existing MIDI Track, the file is placedas a new Instrument Part on the Track, at the position to which it wasdragged.Some MIDI files contain more than one MIDI Part in the sequence. If this isthe case, a drop-down arrow is shown next to the file in the Browser. You canclick the drop-down arrow to reveal the independent Parts. If you drag in afile with multiple Parts, they are shown when dragging the file into yourSong.As with all Instrument Tracks, you need to ensure that the new InstrumentTrack is routed to a virtual or external instrument in order to hear the newInstrument Part. Refer to the Monitoring an Instrument Track section of theRecording chapter for more information.You can also drag a MIDI file directly onto virtual instruments that supportdrag-and-drop MIDI importing.
XYH-6 X/Y CAPSULE: A little X, a little Y, a whole lotta stereo.
The X/Y miking technique is optimal when you want to cover a wide area andstill capture sound sources in the center with clarity and definition, makingit great for all types of live stereo recording.The XYH-6 X/Ycapsule adds two matched high-quality unidirectional microphonesto your H6 or H5. This kind of microphone is most sensitive to signal comingfrom directly in front, and less sensitive to signal coming from behind orfrom the sides; in technical terms, they are said to utilize a cardioid polarpattern.Playing back stereo X/Y tracks in mono results in a fuller sound than youwould get with one microphone, but if mono compatibility is critical (forexample, in television production), the Mid-Side (MS) mic technique can be abetter choice.As shown in this illustration, the angle of the two mics can easily be changedfrom 90 degrees to 120 degrees for a wider stereo image (US Patent 8184815).* * *
H6 as an Audio Interface
The H6’s USB port allows it to send and receive digital data. Connect the H6to your laptop or desktop computer via USB, launch your favorite DAW or usethe included Cubase LE software, and start laying down your tracks. You caneven connect the H6 to an iPad (camera connection kit required).When the H6 is set to “Stereo Mix” in the USB menu, it acts as a 2-input /2-output interface; when set to “Multi Track,” it acts as a 6-input / 2-outputinterface. The H6’s onboard INPUT&OUTPUT mixer allows you to create a customstereo or six-track mix for output via USB, with independent control over thelevel and panning of each track, as well as access to effects like low-cutfiltering, compression and limiting. In addition, signal that is input to theH6 can be monitored directly before it passes through the connected computeror iPad for zero latency (that is, without any delay). There’s also a handyLoop Back mode that allows you to blend stereo signal coming from the computeror iPad with signal coming into the H6 inputs, useful for live streaming viathe Internet or for adding narration to a musical backing track.* * *
Supported File Types – To compress or not to compress
The H6 can record up to six monophonic WAV files (or up to three stereo files)in any of the following formats:44.1kHz / 16-bit, 44.1kHz / 24-bit, 48kHz / 16-bit, 48kHz / 24-bit, 96kHz /16-bit, 96kHz / 24-bitAll WAV files recorded by the H6 are automatically time-stamped, making themfully compatible with the Broadcast Wave Format (BWF); in other words, theyare “BWF-compliant.” This is especially important when recording audio forvideo, because it allows the audio to be precisely synchronized with theonscreen action in post-production.MP3 recordings are compressed, which means that some unnecessary data isremoved prior to storage, making them much smaller than WAV files, and thusmuch easier to upload and download. Some MP3 files exhibit a slight loss ofaudio fidelity as compared with the original signal; however, this is notnoticeable in all circumstances.Note that when the MP3 file type is selected, the H6 only records in stereo;if you want to record in multitrack, you must select a WAV file type. The H6’sinternal mixdown function allows multitrack WAV projects to be easily reduceddown to stereo MP3 (or WAV), with independent control over each track’s level,panning and pitch.* * *
