Audio Converter

If you need a free audio converter for Windows then I suggest Switch. It's very fast and compact and great for converting aif files to mp3.


In the latest CM Special you get 100 freeware tools for making music (though word is only four work on Macs), including TAL-BassLine, a Roland emulator. It comes in VST and AU for Windows and OS X and is well worth the download.

If you want a way to share your music in a way that is actually pretty cool, then check out Soundcloud. This could be great for collabs.
