This project really deserve all credits it can get. So do consider a donation, as the man behind the code really deserves it. B.T.W. with my best 2 the coder
Great app so far (trying out today!) Had to move to a new audio converter due to Win10 breaking with the old XP Digital Plus Pack Audio Converter (remember that?!). This program handled a large batch of an Amazon Classical album of 170 songs with 255 char length titles/filenames without croaking. I used it to go from MP3 to VBR WMA and it went through just fine. Found my new audio converter. Author was very responsive to questions in the forum, very refreshing; fre:ac will join my other favorites mp3tag and album art downloader.
Downloaded, virus scanned, converted my first file within 60 seconds. Great!
excellent app for changing the format to your music
Finally, an easy audio converter, better than the ones you have to purchase.
