I'm sure I'm missing something there...iTunes 11 is just horrible... but yes it is the prime source used to transfer.. I've tried "CopyTrans Control Center" which works pretty good its just getting the FLAC files into the proper player app. AmpliFlac and other FLAC players must get them in from iTunes like many others so using a pc-based application to get the files on the device is pretty easy, its just then getting the appropriate player to then be able to access the FLAC or other lossless files which is the problem...ugh... talk about frustration.
Oh and Allanmarcus, I use FLAC files so I have at least 44kHz/1000kbps from ripped CD music - I use EAC (Exact Audio Copy) which does a really good job. These files are only around 24mb and sound fantastic. I do not want to have a mix of other formats as I have a rather large music collection so keeping to FLAC is definetly a good thing.
Thanks though Bixby, I'm going to check out these apps you mentioned and will surely give a verdict :)
I've heard it's not stable on Windows, but it's by far the best Mac music organizer on the Mac.
As for copying FLACs to iOS programs, you connect your device to the computer via USB. In iTunes you select your device, then click on the Apps tab. You then scroll to the list of apps in the lower part of the screen, find the app, select it, and drags files to the file list on the right side of the screen.
There are also numerous programs like iExplorer that will let you copy files from the computer to the iDevice.
