I have about 5,000 FLAC albums at various levels of compression. A lot are already at level 8, but many are not. Is there some nifty app. that will run through the non-8 compressed ones and recompress them to an 8 for me, checking its work?

I cannot see that dBpoweramp can do this.

Thanks for any insights.

In old days, there were lots of warnings that the --force might eat your files (the right thing for a converter to do is to write, compare, and then delete -- I believe this is the feature of dBpoweramp mentioned by EagleScout1998). If using --force, I would (and did) copy, recompress, verify and then copy back.
