Free FLAC to MP3 Converter is a tiny clever tool that will help you to re-encode your FLAC files into MP3 in one single step, saving you the trouble of decompressing your FLAC files into WAV first. Everything in this free tool is easy and effective – its interface includes no complicated settings and confusing options, and it even allows you to drag and drop your FLAC files directly into the conversion list. The conversion process is fast and easy, and it re-encodes as many FLAC files as needed into high-quality 160 Kbps MP3 files – all in just one go.
In this case, “no complicated settings” actually means no settings at all. This free tool does what it says it does, which is to convert your FLACs into MP3 audio files - end of the story. There is no possibility of selecting the output quality, fixed at 160 Kbps, which is an excellent compromise between quality and file size. It could be worse - some other tools have their MP3 quality set up at 128 Kbps, which is okay for music files, but definitely not the best option now that disk space has stopped being such a big problem.
Free FLAC to MP3 Converter comes with the codecs you require for it to work seamlessly. The MP3 files are generated using Lame – to me, probably the best MP3 codec available today.
