BTW, if you really want to convert your lossless audio files to a lossy format, use a descent format such as OGG. MP3 is probably the worst lossy encoder currently available, especially if the converter is not based on the free LAME MP3 encoder.
Please remember, FLAC is a lossless format. That means, encoding a CD to FLAC and burning it back to CD-ROM will almost create the original disc with all songs in identical quality.
On the other hand, MP3 is a format that trades in sound quality for better file size.
The only use for this converter is listening to FLAC on your old, incompatible mobile device, or some even older device with only small flash memory chips.
So, basically they want to charge $29.95 for a tool that converts your music files to lower quality… I suggest to buy a 16 gig micro-sd instead and find a working FLAC-compatible app. (Wished all my music was FLAC…)
I find offers such as this one amusing – it’s from the vast (pronounced Vhast)collection of P. T. Barnam-type software; as he said, “There’s a sucker born every minute” and he was sure to get their dollar sooner than later. I did not bother to download, because I already have 3 free programs that do the same; only I’ve never used them because everything already IS MP3. Kids today are not audiophiles – they don’t have the time for it – so losing a tiny bit of studio quality sound to get it to fit into a few megabytes is a no-brainer; MP3, the no-brain-needed format.
Suggestion: combine all your one-of converters and then drop the price to as close to zero as possible for you – use it to expand your customer base, your email list and generate sales off of newer, more useful and robust software; this is from the 80′s for gosh sakes! I searched my 12GBs of music files – not one FLAC, so don’t come to my house to hear some tunes, my are all lossy!
Having said all that, I try never to miss a day coming here to read the great and helpful and informative comments (this one excluded) and I really appreciate all the opinions and help offered and found here; ow – just hurt my elbow trying to pat myself on the back!
What is FLAC? Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is an audio compression codec, and employs a lossless data compression algorithm; a digital audio recording compressed by FLAC can be decompressed into an identical copy of the original audio data. Audio sources encoded to FLAC are typically reduced to 50–60% of their original size.
