I ripped my CD collection to FLAC files with REACT. All are complete album files with the embedded CUE sheets in them. I now want to make single MP3 song files from some of those FLAC albums. What's the best tool to do this?

I also want to be able to do about 20 of them at once, so if there is a tool that allows me to pick them all instead of one-by-one, that would be even better.

foobar2000 is by far the easiest way. JUst drag all the FLAC files into a playlist and use Converter.

On the command line you could use ACDIR or CuePROC.

I actually prefer using Omni Encoder over foobar2000 for large amount of files, because Omni Encoder has an ability to organize all encoded files to Artist/Album folders.

Err Foobar2000 can do this too, it can make folders according to metadata.

So does foobar, and more (date, discnumber, discname, etc.). smile.gif

I do agree that using foobar2000 is a very convenient way to convert .flac to .mp3 but I still would appreciate it if John33 would add the ability to feed losslessly compressed audio input to LameDropXPd, just like it works in OggDropXPd. Including the option to inherit the metadata of course.

Thanks everyone for the point about foobar2000's ability to do this. I was not aware of that (I use foobar only as player and for replaygain scan). And sorry for making false claims! Foobar2000 is indeed a great tool smile.gif .
