Automatically clean up Amazon MP3 downloads

Casey,
I typed a response detailing why you shouldn't transcode lossy to lossy, but I dropped it because I'm really just curious... why would you do that?
You've got storage.
The files are kinda small to begin with - even a small iPod can get you along for more than a day on 256k MP3s.

If it's for organizing, there are so many better ways.

I really don't see why you'd want to double-rape those media files en-masse, on the spot.

Google why re-encoding mp3s is horrible. Formats don't matter when transcoding - you're still taking a grainy filtered photo and putting another grainy filter on it, which can only lose more detail.

Hard drives are cheap; your ears aren't. Treat (and feed) them well.
