    Hi,
    I’m new to the music world but would like to start learning and I would like to start asking two questions. I would like to start converting all my music (my CDs) to .AAC or MP3 files and would like to know what would be the best way to do this.

    What would be a good program to convert my music from CDs to .AAC or MP3 format in a Mac?

    Does itunes converts standard music format (from a cd) to .AAC by default?

    Thanks,
    fstigre

    Yes. it does.

    AAC is the default format. But it can convert to MP3.

    Just load in a cd and let iTunes do the rest...

    As stated iTunes will convert the files from your CD for you automatically but for an open-source free general audio converter get MAX.

    Max can extract audio files from a CD or folder and then store/convert the files to more than 20 different audio file formats including MP3, Ogg (Vorbis), FLAC, AAC, Apple Lossless, Monkey's Audio, WavPack, Speex, AIFF, and WAVE.
