2. Select the output settings.

The second step is to select an output settings. To begin, select a folder for output and choose an action to be executed if an output files already exists (create a new file, overwrite or skip existing file).

Also you can set Media Converter to delete source files after conversion and preserve original folder structure, when doing batch conversion. Finally, you should select the output format and sound quality. In FLAC dialog box, choose format settings for the final tracks. Depending on quality you need, select bitrate, sample rate and the number of channels. You will probably lose some audio content if you choose mono option. You can choose what sample rate you want to use. 44.1 kHz (or 44100 Hz) is a sample rate used by music CDs. Less than that and you'll start to hear the loss in quality. You can choose a bit rate you want to use (128kbps is often used for FLACs on the internet).

Once output settings are customized, you can go to the final step - transcoding.

Frequently Asked Questions

We strongly recommend that you first find answers to your questions here before try to contact us.

Q: What is APE ?

A: Monkey's Audio is an algorithm and file format for lossless audio data compression. Monkey's Audio does not discard data during the process of encoding, unlike lossy compression methods such as AAC, MP3, Vorbis and Musepack. Data file compression is employed in order to reduce bandwidth, file transfer time, or storage requirements. A digital recording (such as a CD) encoded to the Monkey's Audio format can be decompressed into an identical copy of the original audio data. As with the FLAC and Apple Lossless format, files encoded to Monkey's Audio are typically reduced to about half of the original size, with data transfer rates and bandwidth requirements being reduced accordingly. Monkey's Audio's advantages are better compression rates compared to FLAC and WavPack, as well as multithreading/multicore support.

Q: What is FLAC ?

A: FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. This is similar to how Zip works, except with FLAC you will get much better compression because it is designed specifically for audio, and you can play back compressed FLAC files in your favorite player (or your car or home stereo, see supported devices) just like you would an MP3 file. Notable features of FLAC: Lossless: The encoding of audio (PCM) data incurs no loss of information, and the decoded audio is bit-for-bit identical to what went into the encoder. Each frame contains a 16-bit CRC of the frame data for detecting transmission errors. The integrity of the audio data is further insured by storing an MD5 signature of the original unencoded audio data in the file header, which can be compared against later during decoding or testing. Fast: FLAC is asymmetric in favor of decode speed. Decoding requires only integer arithmetic, and is much less compute-intensive than for most perceptual codecs. Real-time decode performance is easily achievable on even modest hardware. Hardware support: FLAC is supported by dozens of consumer electronic devices, from portable players, to home stereo equipment, to car stereo. Flexible metadata: FLAC's metadata system supports tags, cover art, seek tables, and cue sheets.
