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.

"Max bitrate is 160kbps, program riddled with Adware"

June 20, 2015  |  By jaykhunter

 |  Version: Free FLAC to MP3 1.0

Pros

Free, simple interface

Cons

Maximum quality is 160kbps, which is embarrassing. When installing, navigate through a minefield of adware.

Summary

I can deal with the adware if they allowed maximum quality of 320kbps. Until then, find another FLAC converter.

"Simply amazing"

June 11, 2015  |  By Jenny R. Lawrence

 |  Version: Free FLAC to MP3 1.0

Pros

this free converter app is among my list of favorites as it has some of the most extraordinary features. It completes the conversion task in no time and hardly affects the performance of the system. I could also use the app to convert FLAC files into WAV format. So it is a multi-purpose converter tool.

Cons

No malware and safe to download.

"CAUTION! Fraudulently Loaded With Adware/Spyware"

April 30, 2015  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: Free FLAC to MP3 1.0

Pros

Not one SINGLE one ? even after all the cleanup BS. The one from Maniac Tools is FAR BETTER than this and is only ad-driven not full of malware.
SADLY EVERY SINGLE ONE of 'CONVERT AUDIO FREE' products are that way!!
SO STAY AWAY FROM 'CONVERT AUDIO FREE' products and site

Cons

Fraudulently ADVERTISED as FREE yet nothing but ONLY adware!
Fraudulently does NOT let you know from the website it is only 95% adware.
Fraudulent! Even if you carefully disable all allowable adware options you are still FLOODED with ads. Had to down load the 'Autorun.exe' utility from Microsoft, to git rid of it.
Fraudulently tried to change your start page, tried to change the default search-engine, and actually installs swiffsearch ? one of the WORSE malware/adware around.
Fraudulently PURCHASES ANY possible positive comments on here!
More ads than even Firefox Ad-blocker Plus could not handle them ? however
PLEASE NOTE: AdBlocker Plus was able to be modified to block all. HINT, HINT!

Summary

CERTAINLY not worth the cleanup hassle!

A person or company is ONLY as good as their word. SO, if they will lie about ONE thing they will lie about ANYTHING! That leaves me wondering just WHAT damage, spy-ware or virus have they left in my system?

ABSOLUTELY cannot understand how CNET could allow/recommend such BS!! Reviews must now be bought off :(

"Elegant in its simplicity"

February 09, 2015  |  By AlwaysGrateful

 |  Version: Free FLAC to MP3 1.0

Pros

Works as described. A small and efficient program.

Cons

Take care to avoid unwanted add-ons.

Summary

The program quickly and easily converts .flac files to .mp3 and stores the resulting file in the same, or some other user-specified folder. No fuss, no muss.

I read each screen very carefully during both the download and installation phases and avoided at least six undesired add-ons.
