If you're in Windows there's a barrage of GUI audio converter programs. From junks, lame or good, there's no outstanding for this "Audio Converter" class. I'm not sure why you could categorized them as un-easy.
I'm on Linux & Windows; all I need is ffmpeg command line.

I've used Poikosoft EZ CD Audio Converter for years, it's really good and the interface is not too complicated to understand. Also includes a CD ripper and burner, for those old fogeys like me who still actually buy CDs...
I use VLC Media Player, it also can convert audioformats
In the help they explains how
Shame the reason why is deleted.
I don't think this thread has anything to do with state of the art computing. Could a mod please move it to the software section ?
Ah well, while we are here.....
For Windows I recommend these small open source front ends for various open source codecs.
Both started as front ends for Lame MP3 encoder but over the years added the important modern codecs such as FLAC, OGG, AAC/M4A, OPUS
Both are very simple to use but offer the experts all the power they need.
Note: Winlame also has the Lame "--nogap" option for gapless albums (see the docs)
If you need to do anything more complex than a direct conversion then Audacity should easily do what you need on all desktop OSs.
It uses optional Lame and FFMPEG codecs so is able to open and export almost any format you could want. It also loads the audio in video files.
If you want a handy media player with useful converting options and the latest codecs, then WACUP is the best bet. It comes with the ability to write MP3, MP4/AAC, OGG, FLAC, OPUS and WAV.
It uses Winamp compatible plugins so other codecs can be added.
(though made for Windows it works well in WINE).
