.YM to .mp3 on PC

Post by ruthless »

Hi all,


Many apologies if this has been asked (probably many times already)

I am looking for a safe and easy to use PC application for converting my .YM files to .MP3 (or .wav)

If anyone can help it would be appreciated

Sending best wishes to all

J

The oldskool way is to use the following programs:

1. Download WinAmp:
https://www.winamp.com
WinAmp 5.8 works fine on Windows 10 64-bit.

2. Download and install the YM plugin for WinAmp:
http://leonard.oxg.free.fr
ST Sound > Download
or download it from my site:
http://lynn3686.com/download/in_ym.zip

3. In WinAmp:
3.1 Press Right Mouse Button > Preferences > Output Plugins and select "Disk Writer" for disk output.
3.2 Play the tune to write the .WAV to disk.
3.3 The WAV is written to /Users/<username>/Music by default.
3.4 Press Right Mouse Button > Preferences > Output Plugins and select "Direct Sound" for normal speaker output.

4. Use EZ CDDA Extractor (https://www.poikosoft.com), Audacity (https://www.audacityteam.org) or Lame (https://lame.sourceforge.io) to convert .WAV to .MP3
192kHz, 16-bit, stereo (or dual mono) should be nice.
EZ CDDA Extractor isn't free but it's worth every penny.
I haven't used Audacity to do this but I believe it should work. It can be configured to use Lame as its MP3 encoder.
