Could anyone give me some pointers as to how to convert a .MOD sound file to an .MP3, .MID, or .WAV sound file on a Mac?

Note the value of commas. Try reading the sentence out loud.

Open an MP3 file in FileTyper (or something similar) and see what the code things are.
Open your MOD file and change the codes to the MP3 ones.

I think that'll just generate some odd error.

Try looking on versiontracker.com searching for "mod mp3 converter" or something. In fact, try any program that can open MODs - it might be able to change the format.

Are there any programs that open mods on a PC?

On a completely unrelated note, does anybody know how I can convert vinyl records to .mp3 or even straight to .cda, since I have a feeling our record player's going to break down soon and some of the records I'd like to keep.

And my hand it shakes the pen
Come on, come on now baby,
Let the good times roll again

There is a way to connect your record player into your computer and have iTunes (or Windows Media Player) convert it. I'm not entirely sure how its down though.

My Dad fixed our computer up to transfer all his vinyl to CD. I'll ask him how he did it and get back to you when he's awake.

I used Final Vinyl for that conversion.

To convert MODs, I just played them loudly and recorded them in another program and saved them as MP3s.

That's a bit of a hassle. Any real sound editor which opens mod files will be able to save in another format.

My dad had a program called UltraRecorder which records from a connected vinyl or cassette player. Then you can use iTunes to convert to mp3.
I'm also pretty sure iTunes does .mod -> .mp3 as well as other formats like .aif and audio cd tracks...
