Something GUI for newbies like me, please. Not everyone is as 1337 to be going CLI.

I don't know of anything GUI. The power lies in the command line interface.
You could create a new directory for testing, say /home/<username>/testing,
where you insert your username in <username> and give one a try. We don't
really know what you have, or what you want to do. Please, for learning some
about how to post, read How To Ask Questions The Smart Way ...

I don't know what a 1337 is, but I don't think I'm one. I've been using Slackware
for not quite 2 years, and I can use command line. Just backup your data, check
what it's going to do in a safe environment, and let her rip! If your data is safe,
the worst thing you can hurt is your pride. ;')

Have you tried Audacity?

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

FYI, 1337, means Leet, or elite.

If you are going to try to lecture someone, at least follow The Smart Way yourself. And using proper syntax would be a good idea.

I have newbie experience. In other words, I am new in Linux, and I am not accustomed to CLI or doing things from console.

And I want to convert music multiple files at once using a GUI programme. As stated in the first 2 posts by me.

Was that so hard to understand?

I have bad experience with CLI, okay?

I tried mass renaming scripts with CLI, and I ended up overwriting other files in the process. Including overwritting the script that I ran.

I tried to install source packages, and it didn't work for me.

I cannot even get apt to install from the console.

Some people just don't like CLI or doing things the old school way.

Of course. That is the most popular convertor/editor for Linux.

But can't convert multiple files like I mentioned in the original post.
