    Question Batch WMA Lossless > MP3 transcode ?

    For free, and reliable obviously. Something like Handbrake, but for audio.

    I need it to copy my library too my San Fran but it doesn't support the hundreads of WMA Losless tracks I've got and i don't really want to re-rip in MP3 :/

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Not free, but the 21 day free trial should see you through for now. It's the best audio converting software (batch wise) I've used.

    Well worth my hard earned cash

    Re: Batch WMA Lossless > MP3 transcode ?

    ^^ this.

    I used to use EAC and a couple of other tools for ripping and encoding my CDs, but then I moved to dbPoweramp, and it des everything I need other that final tag editing (for that I use Tag&Rename). The batch convert function really comes into its own when you have a quad core or higher as it is multi threaded and will use all the power of your PC if it can. High quality LAME encoding at 120x real time is pretty great.
