I stumbled upon foobar about two weeks ago and I never looked back. So thanks.

Okay, back to my real issue.

I have several cue+ape files that I want to transcode or re-encode it to FLAC as I just got a new hardware that support FLAC.

Now I know that I can use the "convert to" option in foobar. My question is that Should I transcode from APE straight to FLAC of do I need to use the Monkey's Audio program to decode the cue+ape file back to wav then use FLAC to encode the Wave file.

Help is very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You can (and should) convert directly from .ape to .flac in foobar! smile.gif

You're probably already aware of these, but if not...

1. foobar doesn't have Monkey's Audio decoding support out of the box, so you need to install the optional component available here.

2. you need to have flac.exe on you system, and configure the Converter to point to this file (along with any other command line options you see fit).
