    Hi I'm wondering how I would change the Bitrate of a song outside of iTunes because most of the songs I need to change won't even be imported into iTunes. Is there a program or a special way of doing so?

    Change the bitrate, are you sure? iTunes doesn't have nitrate restrictions, it either supports the codec the files is encoded with or it doesn't. What kind of files are these? A Media Info report would be useful.

    Just small 2-12 second .mp3 sound clips that I want a standard 256kpbs rate on. They are for an iOS app I'm making. They won't import into iTunes so I can't change them that way.

    That's weird, there's no reason why they shouldn't import in to iTunes.

    You can use Max to convert them to 128kb/s or whatever, I'm guessing AAC would be preferable for iOS development. When you have Max installed, add AAC as an output from Preferences > Output > Apple MPEG4.
