    ape FILES TO flac - ANYBODY - free SOFTWARE Solved

    Hi there
    just tidying up some multi-media (audio) files and I notice I have a load of APE+CUE files as CD images -- any software to convert these to FLAC - the only thing I know that plays APE is VLC media player (it seems to handle EVERYTHING!!!) but I would like to store all my music as FLAC - that's what I have already -- I don't like proprietary formats either so any ideas here.

    Somebody did mention to me the FREE version of Media Monkey -- anybody out there - is this worth downloading and using for this job.

    I've about 500 CD images I need to convert). Does it also work on W8.1 --I've XP and W7 Virtual machine though if it doesn't work on W8.1.

    Actually found a BETTER piece of software - does the FLAC conversion and the track labelling automatically -- CUETOOLS (and it's FREEWARE).

    CUETools Download - CUETools wiki

    scroll down the wiki for the download
