    Max is great. I use it to convert FLAC files to Apple Lossless all the time.

    Note : If you are using Leopard you will need to use the latest unstable version to get it to work.

    I was always using MAX audio to convert my FLAC files to AAC. However, since switching to leopard I am not able to use MAX audio. Where is the unstable version to download? is there anything else besides MAX audio I could try?

    thanks.

    Thanks. I started looking around and found the same thing. How "stable" is the unstable version? Is it safe to use?

    I feel like a stuck record sometimes… :p

    Try XLD… it is free and stable with Leopard…

    It's all open source as it is. *shrug*

    It's up to you to decide. I've used about 3 different applications now since 2005 to handle FLAC conversion.

    It looks like Leopard's Dictionary has a definition as well.
