The popular audio tool X Lossless Decoder(XLD) has a new 64-bit beta test version that was released today. XLD is a very useful tool for converting lossless audio files into various formats like FLAC, Apple Lossless, MP3, and AAC among others.
While the author is asking for feedback with his 64-bit beta, the current 32-bit release is another choice for new users and has been actively developed since 2006.
Another powerful feature, for anyone with audio CDs, is the ability to properly rip a CD using several secure methods. It supports C2 error pointers, checking integrity with the AccurateRip database, and verifying suspicious sectors. Even if a CD appears visually perfect, XLD can detect errors and attempt to retry and properly extract suspicious sectors. It’s the one tool that every music fan should use.
