File Converter does not use the
menu. It uses it's own custom submenu, but it
is affectively the same thing. It is possible to do what you are
describing, but it would only be possible to change the bitrate, not the
sampling rate. You would basically have to create a custom preset with MP3
selected as one of the input formats, MP3 as the output format, and then
select the desired bitrate. You could create multiple presets for
different bitrates and name them accordingly. For example,
"To mp3 (bitrate 96)".

Subject: [TechTalk] File converter
A couple of days ago, Carlos provided a link to a program
called "file converter." I like the concept of just going to the send to
menu to convert a file quickly. I confess I have not read the docs on
this one but need to ask a question.
Sometimes I get these huge mp3 files recorded at very
high bit and sampling rates even though they are voice files which I want to
reduce in size. In the file converter menus, one can convert from mp3 to
various other audio formats. But is it somehow possible using the custom
menu to convert from mp3 to mp3 using lower bit and sampling
If so, how is it done?
