    I have way too many 320kbps files and i'm fine with 192kbps songs. Is there any way to let iTunes automaticly reencode my songs to 192kbps when i import them? And when they are lower (128kbps) just leave them?

    Thanks! :)

    No, but you can right-click on the songs and select Create MP3 (or AAC) Version. Just remember to delete the originals afterwards.

    Unless you have a pressing need to listen to very poor quality audio. Converting 128 kbps to 192 kbps involves a significant quality degradation because you are re-encoding a lossy format.

    I meant just leave them as in don't reencode them haha (sorry for my crappy english :D) So there isn't any 3rd party software or scripts that will do this for me? Damn well then i'll just have to do it manually.. :(

    No, I understood. I just wanted to explain why.

    Not that I know of, but Max can convert audio files and add them to iTunes after conversion.
