To convert audio files on Linux Mint you need to install the proper tools. You may choose from different applications capable of converting between the most used formats (mp3 for storing and listening, wav for creating audio disks and some others).
Please keep in mind that the bitrate is one of the most important feature of an audio file as it determines the quality of the sound. A good choice of bitrate is 320 kbps to convert some music.
