Convert FLAC to MP3
I wrote this somewhere else.
LAME Encoder 3.97 Final
1. Unzip, install, and open FLAC Frontend.
2. Drag and Drop or click "Add Files" to search for the files you would like to convert.
3. If you would like to change where the files decode to, click the "..." button to search for a directory.
*. Make sure you have "Decode through errors" UNchecked.
4. Uncheck "Replay Gain".
*. Make sure "Verify" is checked.
5. Hit the "Decode" button, and a DOS box will pop-up, and start decoding the flac, back to the original WAV.
6. Hit any key to exit the box, when done and verified.
7. Unzip, install, and open Razorlame.
8. Unzip and copy Lame.exe into the Razorlame directory.
9. Open Razorlame and hit Edit > LAME Options.
*. Or click the LAME toolbar button.
10. Either you can have the wavs encoded to the same input directory or you can have it encode to another.
11. Click the "Expert" tab.
12. Check "Only use custom Options".
*. Now most people would want to convert to 320kbps. So that is what I am going to use for the tutorial.
13. Type "-b 320" (without the quotes) into the custom options.
14. Hit "OK".
*. You can also save the options, if you like. Just hit the "Save Options" Button.
15. Click Edit > Options.
16. Click the folder button under "LAME", to search where you installed Lame.exe (which we installed into the Razrolame directory).
*. Mines installed elsewhere in the screenshot.
17. Hit "OK".
18. Drag and Drop or click "Add" to search for the files you would like to encode.
19. Hit the "Encode" button on the toolbar to start encoding.
Now go to the directory where you set the files to be encoded to, and either put them on your portable music device or play them instantly!
Here's some common switches for different birates:
-V 0 --vbr-new
-V 2 --vbr-new
