    Unfortunately we do not have a tool that will automatically convert mp3 audio to another format.

    The file upload tool should allow you to upload such files:

    Do note that the MP3 should allow you to use your storage space more efficiently than other formats. Such as WAV and FLAC which are uncompressed and take lot of space per file.

    Considering that an average mp3 file size is about 4.5mb, that's about 230 files. 

    That would mean you could receive around 200 files. [Give or Take - This can surely vary].

    Do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    my question is that when I try to upload an mp3 via the form, it says the limit is 1024 kb.

    All the mp3s in my library are over that.

    I figured it out, the default settings are at 1024 kb but the limit can be changed.  Thanks
