Xrecode: Simple utility for converting audio formats

This weekend I noted that WinLAME, a free utility for converting audio files from one format to another, had received an update. But Download Squad reader dinoel86 wasn't impressed. He suggested we check out Xrecode, a utility that serves the same function, but which offers support for far more audio formats and which offers a few advanced features. So I did check it out. And Xrecode is pretty impressive.

The free Windows utility supports MP3, WMA, OGG, APE, FLAC, WavPACK, AAC, ALAC, and WAV audio. You can convert files one by one or perform batch conversion jobs. And if you want to encode the same file using multiple formats, you can do that too. For example, if you have some WAV audio files that you want to convert to MP3, OGG, and FLAC, all you have to do is drag and drop them onto Xrecode, select "multiple" and check the boxes next to those formats.

thanks dinoel86!
