dMC r11.5 can decode and encode mp3PRO, see here for details: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/legacy/codec-central-mp3pro.htm

I tried this, but it seems r11.5 doesn't copy the full id3 data incl. the album art, unlike r12 does. When it mp3pro support likely to available in r12? I really need it as my music collection is 99.99% mp3pro & I also use last.fm, but that only supports id3v2 tags, whereas mp3pro is only v1. So I'm looking to convert all my mp3pro to he-aac. I've only found dMC is the only program that copies all id3 data.

mp3pro is one codec we cannot port over to R12.

Because the format is dead in the water, supporting it involded nasty hacks using a Winamp decoder (which really messed with standard mp3 decoding) and an encoder which was even worse.

Ok thanks, I understood about it being dead, but didn't realise it was so hard to port. I guess I will have to keep my current collection as mp3PRO & any new stuff just convert to he-aac. Unless I find another program that will convert my collection keeping the tags + album art intact. I do hope that last.fm do get around to supporting id3v1 tags.

There is no logical reason to keep only id3 v1 tags, they are so limited and unless you have old/specific hardware that does not support id3 v2 tags, then I'd suggest using mp3tag or any number of other programs to update to id3 v2.

btw, I'm pretty sure that id3v1 tags do not support album art anyway.
