Hey guys,

I am not sure where this goes, I thought maybe musicians talk but I placed it here cause it is really nothing to do with my own creations. Basically, do you guys know a good (and preferably free) FLAC to Mp3 converter? I googled it but I really don't know what to trust. I looked at this one:

http://download.cnet.com/Free-FLAC-to-MP3-Converter/3000-2140_4-75206134.html

I just want to be able to listen to my FLAC files on my Mp3 player...

Cheers!

I use "Converterlite" but any freeware is fine most of them are offered free by the developers.

I've come to find the best tool for coding and decoding media is the codec its self. You can get both the flac and lame mp3 codec command line tools for free and they're rather easy to use.

I know this isn't the answer you're looking for, but I'd suggest you pick yourself up a Sansa Clip+ (or a newer model if they've made one), wicked little MP3 players that also play FLAC, OGG etc, it won an award for the amp in it (it really does have great sound) and has expandable storage, give it a look.
P.S. It's also really quite cheap, and if you're in Europe, you have the option to choose your region, pick rest of world and you get the "real" max volume capabilities

I got one of those and couldn't believe how great it sounded.

Pretty much any converter will do the trick. What's important is the codec you're using. LAME is the most popular choice as it's open-source, and also supports various types such as VBR and ABR.
