XRECODE3 Portable, a free audio file conversion program that supports a wide range of formats!
"XRECODE II is free and fully functional shareware, the one caveat being that to get rid of the nag dialog box when launching, registration is required and a license is only $15." —Brian Burgess, HowToGeek.com (12/2/09)
"What I like about this program is the simplicity of the interface coupled with some serious power it packs the hood (as well as the CUE splitting, which I occasionally sought out). I am also intrigued by the audio file splitting based on the automatic detection of gaps/silences in a big file." —Samer Kurdi, freewaregenius.com (Jul 16, 2008)
"This isn't a program aimed at novice users. There's no glossy interface, no attempt to hide jargon or advanced options: the opening screen is absolutely crammed with buttons, lists and checkboxes. But xrecode II isn't particularly difficult, either." —Mike Williams, PCAdvisor.co.uk (07 Apr 16)
XRECODE3 is audio converter, which supports most of the common audio formats, such as mp3, wav, flac, dsd, etc. It also supports extracting audio file from most video files as well as Audio-CD grabbing.
