Editors' review

Free FLAC to MP3 quickly and effectively converts your files, but it comes with some additional junk. While completely basic, the program operates as intended and supports batch conversions.

When you're downloading this program, it will hit you with quite a few junkware programs. If you're not careful it will take over your browser with toolbars and other nasty add-on programs. You can opt out of each one, but the program doesn't make it easy for you to avoid walking away clean. If you make it through that minefield, Free FLAC to MP3 works well enough. It lets you convert multiple files at once and works quickly. The main menu offers only three buttons, "Add," "Remove," and "Start Conversion," so it's very easy to get started. You can also just drag and drop files into the interface, choose the output folder, and start batch converting. The main window displays the file name, title, duration, conversion progress, and conversion status. Apart from setting the quality and bit rate in the Settings menu, the program doesn't include any other additional options or custom settings.

Perhaps Free FLAC to MP3 offers a fraction of the functionality of other, more powerful audio converters, but it does what it's supposed to do. If you're looking for a basic program for only one type of file conversion, and don't mind navigating through junkware during the installation, then this program could prove useful.

    "!!! Careful when installing !!!"

    July 28, 2014   |   By Berngrt

    Version: Free FLAC to MP3 1.0

    Pros

    Lightweight
    Simple interface

    Cons

    !!! You have to read the prompts carefully when installing as you could end up with additional 'stuff' installed !!!
    Max MP3 Bit rate is 128kbps, I'd like to have seen at least 256kbps (reason for which I'm not keeping it)
    Had to enter the full path of the folder I wanted to output the converted files to as it wasn't detecting my other drives.

    "Unable to install without spam and adware"

    June 08, 2014   |   By Hey_888

    Version: Free FLAC to MP3 1.0

    Pros

    None that I can see

    Cons

    Many, it's very advanced. You need your firewall installed when installing. It won't install the app without the other add-ons,

    Summary

    CNET MUST pull this app. It's unethical to have this app available on this site.

    "Get done more, fast!"

    May 27, 2014   |   By AddieliRomnes

    Version: Free Flac to MP3 1.0

    Pros

    I wanted my converter to perform at its highest potential. Surprisingly the FLAC to MP3 converter that I bumped upon handles batch conversions that let me convert more files in less time. So, if you are trying to save time and want to multitask this is a good program to use.

    Cons

    Don't expect a lot from this converter as it is very basic. It also comes with additional software that you are better off avoiding. The program is free and so it is worth a try.
