Audio Converter (Any)

It would be interesting to have an Audio Converter (any). What do you suggest?

Audacity

It's already portable, works well and is in PortableApps.com Format (see: Audacity Portable).

Opens: WAV, AIFF, AU, MP3 and OGG
Saves: WAV, OGG and MP3

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Bad for just conversion

Audacity is a very bad tool for just conversion. It will convert without problems, but it's pretty slow because it opens the files for editing and can only process one file at a time. For other uses, it may be great, but it's slow and bloated for a converter.

Not to be hosted on this

Not to be hosted on this site, but I recommend Audioconverter - a plugin for Total Commander. It converts practically everything to everything and is the most comfortable tool you can imagine.
Drawback: Total Commander is shareware.

BeLight

Frontend gui for BeSweet. It is GPL, and wonderfully simple to convert audio formats.
accepts input AC3, WAV, OGG, MP2, MP3, AVI, VOB, LST, MUX
Outputs AAC/MP4, AC3, MP2, MP3, VORBIS, WAV,AIFF.
Can work with multi-channel audio if you are into the whole Surround Sound thing.

foobar2000 or CDex

foobar2000 works nicely as a frontend for any encoder. It's more work to set up than most encoders (it's not really complicated, though), but once it's set up, it's extremely convenient if foobar2000 is your primary music player (I recommend it). CDex can convert audio files without much setup, but the included conversion libraries can be dated. There is an option to use an external encoder, but that's the same thing you'd do with foobar2000.

http://www.foobar2000.com (portable out-of-the-box, but the native playlist format uses absolute paths. If you're going to be using different drives, make sure to save to m3u and substitute relative paths (relative to foobar2000.exe))
http://cdexos.sf.net (this is the main site; a portable version is not available here)
http://www.framakey.org/Portables/PortableCDex (portable version page on Framakey; the page is in French, but the default language for the app is English. It should be in the standard PA format)

Both CDex and the launcher in the portable version are licensed under the GPL; foobar2000 is freeware.

BonkEnc

BonkEnc, recently released, handles voc files i'm pretty sure. if not there's also mediacoder and cdex is dev testing.
