    I want to edit a FLAC file without having the quality reduced, what is the best program to do that with? Audacity? Also how do I do that?

    What do you mean by "edit" a FLAC file?
  3. AudiOw
    Edit 1 FLAC file 8 minutes long into two separate FLAC files one 6 minutes long and the other 2 - without reducing the quality of the files.

    Convert it into a wav or aiff file, edit it in the audio editor of your choice, convert it back into (2) flac files.

    You don't need to convert to .wav or .aiff. As long as you can import and export in FLAC, there will be no quality loss. You can check the spectrals afterwards to see if the audio program has decided to mess with the audio or not.

    You can edit a FLAC file in Audacity just the same as you would a WAV, all the filters and editing tools should work just the same.

    You might want to make a copy of your original file before you start working on it, just to be safe, and when you finish, save it as a unique file name.
