How do I convert my sermon audio from a CD to a small sized but good quality mp3 file?

You will first need to download and install this free program called Switch and download the free version (not the plus version).

Once installed, run it.

Click on the 'add files' button at the top.

Choose your cdrom drive and double click on track01.cda. Your file will now be listed in the switch program under 'source file.'

In the 'output folder' field at the bottom of the switch program, choose a folder you would like to output the file to.

In the 'output format' dropdown menu, choose mp3.

Now click on 'encoder settings...' which is next to the 'output format' dropdown menu.

Keep it checked on constant bitrate. Choose 24 from the 'bitrate (kbps)' dropdown menu. Keep 'high quality encoding' checked.

At the bottom of this popup box, make sure the 'stereo encoding' dropdown menu is set to mono.

Click OK.

Now click the convert button at the top right of the program and you are done! The file should be anywhere between 6-11mb, which is perfect for a 35 minute or longer sermon that needs to be uploaded to the sermon manager program on the website.
