qaac ~ AAC / ALAC Encoder


qaac is a command line AAC / ALAC encoder frontend based on Apple encoder, strongly influenced by tmkk.pv.land.to/qtaacenc/.

qaac requires Apple Application Support that is included in iTunes or QuickTime. If you are using 64 bit Windows, recent 64 bit iTunes (ver 12.1 or later) is recommended. 64 bit installer for iTunes (iTunes6464Setup.exe) includes both of 32 bit and 64 bit Apple Application Support, therefore you can run both of qaac.exe and qaac64.exe with its installation.

Features:
  • AAC-LC, AAC-HE, ALAC encoding are supported. m4a container (just a MP4 container with ‘M4A ‘ brand, created by Apple) is used by default, but you can also mux into ADTS.
  • Filenames and tags are treated with Unicode. Very long file names are supported.
  • Support for multichannel / surround.
  • Fine quality control over AAC encoding.
  • Support for hi-resolution / multichannel ALAC.
  • WAV, raw PCM, ALAC, and all LPCM formats supported by CoreAudio AudioFile interface (such as AIFF, CAF, and Sun/AU) are directly available as input. MP3 is also decodable through CoreAudio.
  • Cue sheet input is also available.
  • FLAC, Wavpack, TAK, and other LPCM formats are optionally supported when libFLAC.dll, wavpackdll.dll, tak_deco_lib.dll, and libsndfile-1.dll are installed.
  • Piped input is available for WAV and raw PCM.
  • Piped output (streaming) is supported for ADTS.
  • Automatically fetch tags from AIFF, FLAC, Wavpack, Tak, and ALAC. Major tags are copied to the result. Also, you can manually set tags via command line options.

libopenmpt ships with plugins for 3 popular Windows audio players already included:

  • xmp-openmpt is a plugin based on libopenmpt for XMPlay.
  • in_openmpt is an input plugin based on libopenmpt for WinAMP 2.x or later compatible players.

FLAC Frontend ~ Lossless Encoding GUI


FLAC Frontend is a convenient way for Windows users not used to working with command lines to use the official FLAC tools. It accepts WAVE, W64, AIFF and RAW files for encoding and outputs FLAC or OGG-FLAC files. It is able to decode FLAC files, test them, fingerprint them and re-encode them. It has drag-and-drop support too. It is tested on Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7, but should work with Windows XP SP2 or newer. It requires .NET 2.0 or later.
