I like listening audiobooks 3x the speed. Audible is great for that.

I also have some books in mp3. Is there a way to convert them to 3x speed so that the voice is the same and it sounds like audible?

I would prefer to have a way to convert a number of files. A linux script would be probably the best. A windows program that can work with larger number of files should work too.

Update there is a similar question but i'm looking for a linux script. preferably something that i can easily install with a package manager (apt-get, yum, pacman)

Do you want to modify the file and write a new copy of the MP3, or do you just want a player that allows for 3X playing? – ernie Nov 16 '12 at 22:24

SoX's tempo predicate will modify the speed of the audiobook but not the pitch of the sound.
