Converting M4A to MP3 in iTunes 11?

I need to change some songs that I've recorded from M4A to MP3 in order to upload them to my local radio station.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks a lot,

Rob

Preferences > General > Import Settings. Change to MP3.

Right click on songs, Create MP3 version.

Keep in mind converting a lossy format to another lossy format degrades the SQ. You best bet is to use the original lossless file to do an MP3 conversion. Especially since this looks to be for a professional/commercial use.

Switch is the program i just picked up...and its free...works great, in the past I converted my music collection from WMA to MP3 so it'd play on my first iPod.
