This is a software tool that lets you convert FLAC format audio files into the more common MP3 files.
FLAC or the Free Lossless Audio Codec allows digital audio to be losslessly compressed. Digital audio compressed by FLAC`s algorithm can typically be reduced to 50–60% of the original size, and decompressed into an identical copy of the original audio data. FLAC playback support in portable audio devices and dedicated audio systems is limited compared to formats like MP3. Thus when your precious FLAC compressed audio is to be played on these portable players, you need a converter like this product. This tool is free for private and non commercial use too. It uses recent and advanced FLAC codec and Lame MP3 encoder ensuring best possible quality after converting from the lossless format.
This program supports a batch mode that will let you convert a bunch of tracks at a time. As the program is optimized for working on multi-core CPU based machines, you are able to get fast conversion speeds on such machines. The SSE/Hyper thread technology gets you a significant speed boost. The interface is simple and intuitive and the main operation is to collect the list of files to be converted. Once the conversion is started you get to see the progress bar. Additionally, you have a log capture also available. These log messages will tell you if anything has gone wrong and why. This is a very good product and you should give it a try if you have a substantial collection of tracks in FLAC format.
