Need help with HDTT downloads

I need some help with downloads from the HD Tape Transfers website. I'm able to download the .flac files onto my desktop, but now I have no idea what to do with them.

 

I'm using iTunes on a Mac Mini with a Drobo storage device. All of my other music files are .aiff files. Do I first need to convert the .flac files to .aiff? If so, how do I do that? How do I pop the files into the appropriate directory for iTunes to be able to access them?

 

If these questions have been answered before, please direct me to the appropriate thread, because I haven't been able to find anything.

 

Thanks,

GG

Chris, I was able to convert the files. I even got them to show up in the iTunes Library and make them play. The next problem is renaming the files, because all four files have useless names now like "00 Unknown Track" and "00 Unknown Track-1"

 

I tried to do a little research about this and came up with some software called Doug's Apple Scripts, but I couldn't get it to work. Any ideas?

I'm just now trying to do the same thing for a couple FLAC hi-res downloads...

 

On the Max download site there are two available programs. Which program is the one to download/use - 'Universal Binary" or 'Source Code" (or does it matter)?

OK. Got Max downloaded. Then here's the procees I went through to get my downloaded 24/96 album into my iTunes library:

 

Got the files converted to AIFF, found them on the hard drive, drug them over to my iTunes Library (on the Drobo NAS in my case), manually went in and ammended the names (took out the 01, 02, 03, etc, that were included as part of the actual track titles), manually entered the "track 1 of 13, track 2 of 13", etc. (because the files/songs were actually out of the correct playing order). Whew! Makes me want to just stick with CD's.

 

Any easier way to do this?
