Convert ALAC to FLAC on Windows PC?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

What software works best? Or at least to WAV. Preferably open source.

 

I don't have access to any Macs.Plenty of things convert FLAC to ALAC or back and forth on a MAC, but I don't see anything on a PC.

I really like dbpoweramp a lot.

If you want a fully free (though not open source) program, foobar's the one for you.

I've just went and got dbpoweramp. Thanks for the advice.

 

Already have foobar.

The dbpoweramp must buy after the trial version? How about Max? Good?

 

Any free installation of the dbpoweramp? Read that can share up to 5 users. Any ideas?

Yes. Pretty Good for what it does.

No Idea.

I use xrecode, more convenient than foobar.

In trial  mode, you have a nag screen at each start, and then you can use it normally.

Otherwise the license is enough cheap.

 

Dbpoweramp was free in old versions...

Just curious, after the 21 day free trial for dbpoweramp, can you uninstall and then just reinstall the program to restart the free trial?

 

I don't have a lot of money right now, and converting FLAC to ALAC is very useful for me, hopefully I'll purchase the full version soon.

xrecode allows conversion from alac for free. Trial = nag screen, that's all, still full features.

I'm not sure why you just didn't use Foobar to do the conversion, it has supported ALAC playback for a while now.

foobar2000 v1.1.10 beta 1 has been released. This version adds native ALAC support using the newly released Apple decoder library; the ALAC decoder component is now obsolete.

I don't think Foobar can do conversion.

If Foobar can play it, it can convert it regular_smile%20.gif

Sure it can. :)

 

I use it to convert from FLAC to WMA_Lossless or MP3 (lame) all the time.
