Is there a decent conversion program out there?

Nevermind. Using secret magic search, I see that you use a Mac mini. Max is the program for Mac, unless you want to pay some major $$. I use version 7.1 and it works great for everything ( I use Sound Forge on the PC ). There was an issue with FLAC when using version 8.0, but that was supposed to be fixed with version 8.1. I don't know for sure, because I am happy with version 7.1. Here is their website: http://sbooth.org/Max/

 

If you have problems with 8.1 let me know & I will try to help.

DBPoweramp Music Converter is by far, the best app out there with its plugins to convert files to all formats! Too bad, not a Mac version :-)

I join the Max tool recommendation here, I use it with SD and HD flac to AIFF to iTunes flawlessy. I'm also a DBP windows user and do not see any missing of Max against it in the specific application.

Hi team. I have been busy ripping my music collection to my nas. Very Boring! EAC works great...thanks for the support with that! Thank god I never really got into buying cds :)

 

Anyway, Chris next up is converting my 24/96 flac to 24/96 wav. I guess you like mac for Apple, but what do you like for the pc dudes and dudets.

 

regards

I have actually converted a few of my files from flac to wav and cant really tell them apart. I know its better in wav and I am ok with all that. I know its good for straight flac to wav conversion at the same bit/sample rate. However, is it also good for up sampling or should I then move to something like soundforge for that kind of work?

 

Thanks team

I'm busy archiving LPs to 24/192 PCM files, recording in AIFF. No problem converting these files to WAV and FLAC with Max, but conversion to ALAC gives large files that Max cannot convert back to anything.
