Converting all songs to same bit-rate

    Currently many of the songs in my iTunes library are ripped at different bit-rates, depending on the settings of iTunes at the time I ripped the CD.

    My question is this: I'm wondering if there is a simple way to convert all my stuff to the same bit-rate without creating thousands of duplicate songs? All of my songs are in playlists according to artist, therefore, duplicates would mean a difficult time sorting them all back into their respective playlists.

    Well, if you re-rip from CD, you can usually select "replace existing songs."

    This would be worthless; increasing the bitrate of some songs would just increase filesize, not quality, and the quality would decrease of others...
