    I would like to know how to convert a 6 channel wav into a 6 channel mp3.
    The only programs I have found convert the 6 channel wav into a 2 channel mp3.
    I would like to keep the 6 channels.(5.1)
    Can anyone help me?
    I would appreciate any help.
    Thank you

    First, you will need to invent a 6 channel Mp3.

    Supposedly there is a fraunhofer mp3 surround encoder out there that did this - but I've never seen it.
    Also, there was a version of VirtualDub or VirtualDubMod (aud-ex?) that possibly could use the codec.

    The deal is what is going to play the audio that you need to convert it to an mp3? Will that device play a 5 track mp3? I bet most mp3 players will only play 2 of the tracks.

    The mp3 sound was for an avi. In order to use virtualdub to adjust sound, or add audio, it must be a wav or an mp3. I wanted to keep the 6 channels.
    I found an odd way around my problem.
    I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE THAT OFFERED ME HELP!!!

    FWIW, I downloaded the Fraunhofer codec and converted a six channel wav file with it.
    Problem is that my media players, Audacity (and MediaInfo) see it as stereo and since my audio equipment consists of a tuner/amp liberated from a circa 1976 Sears Silvertone behemoth, I have no way of verifying it.

    I downloaded an AVI that had both 2 channel and 6 channel, but my dvd player wouldn't recognize the second audio (the 6 channel).
    So I downloaded Pazera Audio extractor. I extracted the audio channel that I wanted.
    I then used Winavi to turn the MP4 into an Xvid.
    I used Virtualdub to remove the audio from the Xvid.
    Then I used AVIMux_GUI and put the 6 channel audio together with the Xvid.
    Then I had what I wanted.

    Later....if I wanted to shrink the Xvid and still have the exact quality.....I could use AutoGK.

    Now my AVI is exactly what I wanted. A great picture with 6 channel sound.

    If this helps anyone with the same problem I had, I am glad.

    Again....Thank everyone that helped me.
