I launched XLD, clicked File, Open, and opened the music folder but it didnt do anything.
I use toast titanium. Pretty straight forward.
I have had XLD for a while but never used until today. You got me curious. It worked quickly, flawlessness and was one of the easiest Apps I have ever used. Just open the Folder and you get this screen and hit Transcode and it makes a copy in the codec you have selected.
Also by opening the files (and not the folder) you bypass the screen and it transcode immediately.
EDIT: If opening a folder you need to use the Open Folder As a Disc command.
It says cannot write the output file.
Ive used XLD a lot but not what you want it for, sorry.
This might help though,
Its very easy. All I do is right click on the flac files and click open with XLD. It should do it automatically.
You have to set it up first. Its going to do whatever was previously set or not set up yet to do anything.
What did you select as the Output Directory (Folder)?
Are you replying to my question? If so when replying please quote to give a courtesy notification to the person.
If so my question is where are the output files going? Is it a valid accessible Folder. See pic.
personally, I find Max easier for straight FLAC conversions & only use XLD for ape cue etc.
Which option should I choose to convert the files? Apple lossless?
Apple Lossless (ALAC) works pretty much like FLAC, both are lossless audio codecs. AAC falls in the same category as MP3.
questions about the settings on XLD to convert from FLAC to ALAC.
1. Embed cue sheet as a chapter. (uncheck or check) ? http://d.pr/i/1ha3h
2. Character encoding. (UTF-8 or Western Mac OS Roman) ? http://d.pr/i/Gj2v
3. BOTH METHODS WORKS but I prefer ask: When you have a FLAC album on tracks (not a single track) and you have the .cue, you use the .cue or just drag and drop the flac files to convert? http://d.pr/i/Q2me
that is, any help?
