Part 2. How to Convert iTunes Music Format Using iTunes

As explained above, iTunes can play songs in various formats. While AIFF would sit over your memory, MP3 tunes will allow you to add more stuff in the library. So, is it possible to convert the big sized AIFF to a smaller version of MP3? You may also come across situations where a WAV file is not being supported by some devices, then you may want to convert it to other acceptable format while also retaining your original WAV version.

While conversion of iTunes music format using iTunes is possible, it also deteriorates the quality of the content most of the times. Say for e.g., going from MP3 (compressed format) to AIFF (uncompressed format) may seem to be a cakewalk with no visible reduction in quality, but as you decide to switch from uncompressed to compressed, i.e. AIFF / WAV to MP3, the quality of the sound seems vulnerable. Nevertheless, here’s a step-by-step guide to convert music format on iTunes.

Step 1: Start by opening your iTunes interface. Now, for Windows: Choose Edit>Preferences. And for Mac: Go to iTunes>Preferences.
