Items that we now take for granted like the iPod didn’t even exist!
I download a lot of live music via Bit Torrent – and most of it is compressed using FLAC. The cool thing about FLAC is that it is a lossless compression format. The downer is that to listen to these files on my iPod they need to be converted to an iPod-compatible format. To save space I like MP3 – I keep the FLACs for home stereo listening, or burning to CDs.
The process of converting from FLAC to MP3 used to require a couple of programs and be a somewhat time consuming process… until now! Techspansion, makers of another of my favourite programs – VisualHub – have released AudialHub. This almost* all-in-one audio converter does exactly what I need… and more.
And for $20 ($15 if you already own VisualHub) it’s a great deal.
