Does anyone know of a good "free" PC audio conversion library/SDK. I'm basically looking to be able to load a number of different file formats (mp3, aiff etc), and be able to convert them to the .wav format. I don't really need to have the source code (a compiled lib + dll will work just fine). The audio equivalent of the DEVIL image library would be perfect. thanks -Steve.

libsndfile?

It doesn't do ogg though. doing ogg to pcm is not too bad with libvorbis though.

Edit: Oh, it doesn't do mp3 either, for patent reasons. I forgot about that.

audacity does a pretty decent job for conversion and is a great sound editor as well

thanks for the replies guys (+'ve ratings applied)

Googling around, I did find a direct-show example that looks like it can convert audio formats. Only problem with it is I have to download it via the latest windows SDK which sounds like a right kerfuffle.

Anyone have experience with direct-show audio programming (with Visual Studio 2005)? Can it do the job of easily converting any format to .wav pcm format?

cheers,
-Steve
