Batch FLAC Decoder
Batch FLAC Decoder is a lightweight and simple-to-use command-line application that converts audio tracks from the FLAC format to the WAV extension. This procedure is done in batch mode.
Although there are plenty of similar tools on the market that perform this task while supplying the user with a standard window for an interface, command-line tools usually deliver quicker solutions, since it does not confuse its audience with a multitude of options.
Aside from this aspect, command-line utilities do not come with an installation package, thus protecting the Windows Registry section from unwanted entry updates. Plus, no files are left behind after removing the program, as this typically happens with apps which require a setup.
The executable file of Batch FLAC Decoder can simply be dropped on any location on the hard drive and directly run. Otherwise, you can store the utility on a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, and run it on any computer. Plus, you can keep the app in your pocket whenever you're on the move.
However, the EXE file must be placed in the same location as the folder containing the FLAC items you want to decompress. Upon deployment, all you have to do is write the name of the folder in question, establish the output directory and press the Enter key.
Batch FLAC Decoder automatically processes all FLAC files it finds in that location. Other file types are ignored, so you don't have to worry about accidental deletions. If you want to start a new conversion job (since it cannot work with multiple folders simultaneously), you have to restart the tool.
The simple-to-use application is low-demanding when it comes to the CPU and system memory, has a good response time and finishes a conversion job quickly. The output Wave files have a very good sound quality. We have not come across any issues throughout our testing. The bottom line is that Batch FLAC Decoder is an excellent choice for simple FLAC-to-WAV conversions in batch mode, and it can be handled even by users with no experience in Command Prompt.
