You can use an on line converter also, if your just doing music/audio it should work o.k. for you.

Only if its not private content. The online tool will keep a copy of it and most likely share and watch or listen.

While this is true, The OP has not stated any privacy concerns. It should be expected that anything on line will have some kind of privacy concerns.
Audacity is a very good software I've used it myself before too.

Doesnt need to state it. I said it for ANYONE reading, that isnt to savvy or understanding on what free services do.

"Should be" expected... yes, but I know most people dont understand in reality what happens, and always good to not assume!
