Au is a basic audio file format developed by Sun Microsystems. Essentially, Au is the same as the SND format and commonly seen on NeXT systems and early web pages. However, newer media players may fail to open Au files, and we’d best convert Au to a common format like WAV or MP3 if we want easier playback.
In the next part, we will go over how to convert Au to WAV with a powerful audio converter. Read on if you’re interested.
(* Note that AU files can also be AUP files associated with Audacity. Please refer to this article to learn how to convert AUP files.)
Au-WAV conversion isn’t hard, and using a good audio converter is already half way there. WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro is such a top-notch converter for audio and video and it can help you convert Au files to WAV in three simple steps. Meanwhile, if you have hundreds of Au files, you can also use the converter to batch convert these files at once. Besides WAV, you are allowed to convert Au to MP3, AAC, FLAC, and other pop audio formats with no issue. Now, let’s free download free download this audio converter and follow the steps to convert Au files to WAV efficiently.
Open HD Video Converter Factory Pro on your desktop and click the Converter to bring up the converter window. Next, click the add button to import your Au files into the conversion list. Or you can drop your Au files into the blank interface straightforwardly.
Tips. At the bottom of the interface, click the inverted triangle button to set an output folder in advance.
Unfold the output format list from the right-side format image section. Then, go to the Audio category and select WAV as the output format.
Tips. For advanced users who want to further modify the output settings, they can open the Parameter settings below and change audio bitrate, channel, sample rate, volume, and codec freely. If you don’t have any conversion experience, you can just let the program smart fit the parameters.
When everything is ready, click the Run button to convert audio Au to WAV. After that, go to the output folder you previously set to view the converted files.
