Description:

FLACTunes FLAC Converter is the simplest way to get your FLAC songs into iTunes without losing quality, so you can play them on your computer or load them onto your iPod, iPhone or iPad.

It converts them into Apple's own lossless audio format. In the process, no data is lost: iTunes gets an identical, Apple-friendly version of your songs to play or load onto your iOS device.

Features:

* Support for 24-bit, 192Khz ultra-high fidelity audio: FLACTunes imports even the most high-quality tracks available into bit-for-bit equivalent, lossless files.

* Metadata preservation: FLACTunes preserves all your track information, including album art.

* Multi-threaded: FLACTunes uses all the cores of your processor to import FLAC as efficiently as possible.

Review by AdamBernard

works great - no problems - I’ve been using this for almost a year now, and have yet to have any problems with it. You simply drag your music into the box, and it appears in your itunes library. Converting ten FLAC files say of 30 megabytes takes less than a minute, however I am on a new macbook. You can set it to convert to different qualities within the preferences - I chose apple lossless. I’ve gone between listening to the itunes version, and FLAC on vlc player, and I could not hear any difference with my reference headphones. It honestly works like a dream - I wish more software was this easy to use. I noticed there was a claim about it only converting the first 50 seconds of a song - I have never experienced this problem or anything like it.

Doesn't work - Only converts first 40-50 seconds of song and gives error on 2/3rds of songs. Wish I could getmy money back.

Perfectly easy - After a failed attempt at trying to get Fluke running on OSX Mtn Lion (10.8.3), and all the warnings about XiphQT frameworks being 32-bit and needing to make iTunes (and QT player too?) run in 32-bit mode, I decided to try this out. Installed and 30 seconds later I was listening to my FLACs. Perfect. I do wish I could tell it where to put the converted FLACs, since I don't let iTunes copy most of my music but would love to put the converted m4a's in the iTunes folder vs. a (new) FLACtunes hierarchy to make manual syncing between my Mac and my NAS device easier (only one folder to exclude) Thanks, wish all apps worked this well!

Review by iunderwood74

Simple and Easy - I bought this to convert a number of FLAC albums I've bought into iTunes. This is how any drag-n-drop app should work. I do seem to have to restart it after each conversion, but I expect the bugs will be addressed in time. The slight inconvenience isn't enough to knock a star off the rating, however.
