Import FLAC into iTunes with CDDB info via Toast
Authored by: Mr. Frog on Feb 24, '09 08:27:06AM
I found a software that isn't that complicated, it just converts the FLAC to Apple Lossless and it keeps the "ID3"/metadata.

XLD: http://tmkk.hp.infoseek.co.jp/xld/index_e.html

It works well and fast!

Seconded... XLD works great for me. It just got a nice update as well.

It's all about the tags!

If you've got a flac with good tags then that's great but you might have missed the point of my post, the whole reason for doing this is so that you get the tags from CDDB.

I used to use XLD myself for this but got fed up with having to fix the tags. I do still use XLD if I get a single flac with a cue file.

Again the pint of this hint isn't how to convert, it's how to get the tag data from CDDB.

I was going to post the link. XLD is working great for me. Convert FLAC to Apple Lossless with just about all the tag information intact.

Now, if someone could point me to a decent, free ID3 tag editor for the Mac I'd be very grateful...
