I have an Mp3 file i need to convert to .wav to be able to import it into a voice changer program.

How do I do this using the command line?


Using ffmpeg - installed by default

ffmpeg -i input.mp3 output.wav 

Alternative - mpg123

sudo apt-get install mpg123

Then to convert mp3 to wav (using -w option)

mpg123 -w output.wav input.mp3
  • Hi ,if possible could you expand it to run on all files in a folder? – kRazzy R Feb 20 '18 at 21:21

    @kRazzyR: for f in ls; do ffmpeg -i $f $(basename $f).wav; done – datakid Mar 31 '18 at 2:06
