The native audio application on Mac does not support all audio formats out there and thus there is a need to convert them to the native format. The Movavi app is the best mp3 converter for mac that lets you convert any audio track to MP3 so that it is easily playable across all of your devices including your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Supported platforms include Mac OS X (Intel) 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite.

Just make sure you have selected the desired output format and you will have your files converted in no time. The Movavi Audio converter for Mac lets you adjust the format settings such as bitrate so that you can reduce the output file size. This can be useful for those who have limited storage capacity and want to store many songs on their devices.

This application lets you trim, split and merge audio tracks. This means you can join multiple pieces of audio tracks together. To trim or split the file, just mark the beginning and end of the fragments you wish to keep. Whatever is left outside the markers is not included.
