Did you know, dBpoweramp is able to create simultaneously two formats during ripping a CD. For example, you rip once and get both a FLAC file and a AAC file.

Renaming songs and tags and changing artwork: that all I do inside of dBpoweramp, because you may compare several providers of tag infos and you change between tag versions with only one click. Very easy and time-saving.

Furthermore I make sure of 100% rip quality by watching AccurateRip results of other people. dBpoweramp is the best way to rip and convert music. Drawback: though they are preparing a Mac version, at the moment the stable version is only Windows.

Many people said iTunes can do this job. That's a tale of a tub. iTunes does not support FLAC as the input format. How can iTunes convert FLAC to AAC?

From Apple Discussion, I found out an excellent solution of converting FLAC to AAC:

1. The solution will help you convert FLAC to AAC, MP3, WAV, M4A, ALAC, WMA, CAF, DTS, AIFF, etc;
2. It also allows you to optimize the output file;
3. If you want to extract audio file from videos and movies, it also can give you a hand.
