MP3 Quality Modifier 2.53
Software Product Description
MP3 Quality Modifier is a straightforward program that is able to easily change the quality of your MP3's in order to save disk space and/or to fit more music on your MP3 player while maintaining the desired level of audio quality and keeping all ID3 tags intact!
The program is pretty simple to use: The first step is to drag and drop MP3 files on the file list, MP1 and MP2 files are supported as well. Various information such as the name, interpret, size and bitrate are displayed automatically.
The next step is to select a preset which ranges from high quality over portable and compromise to low quality. More advanced users can choose from a variety of configurations such as bitrate mode and rate, sample frequency and the stereo modus.
The process itself takes only a few seconds per song and is even able to adapt the folder structure (example: "Artist X" folder with "Album 1" and "Album 2" as subfolders) if that is wanted. Unlike other tools all ID3 tags like the title, artist etc. are automatically retained as well. Finally the result window allows to compare the original and created music files by listing their size differences.
MP3 Quality Modifier is portable, doesn't need an installation and is powerful but easy to understand!
No special system requirements are needed.
What's New in version 2.53:

Pros: Do everything it says it does Fast Easy Very useful Free
Other Thoughts: Love it, so useful to reduce the size of big mp3 files. And contrary to most converters it does not need to convert format but stays in mp3, so no loss of quality (except for the reduced bit rate of course). GREAT !! Best mp3 tool, like Mp3Gain, Mp3Tag and Mp3DirectCut.
