The Ultimate Live Music Audio Converter is an audio conversion tool specifically designed around the file formats used for live music trading. It currently supports conversion of SHN, FLAC, and WAV files to MP3 or Ogg. Advanced features include automatic tagging of files using the contents of a set-list file (MP3, Ogg, and FLAC only), upload of new files into Itunes Library, and scanning directories where new files are downloaded (manual or automatic).
Flac2All is a multi-threaded script that will convert your collection of FLAC files into either Ogg Vorbis, MP3 (with the Lame encoder), or FLAC, complete with any tags and identical file/folder structure. The script has been stable for about a year now, and it has been known to saturate 8-core machines with parallel conversions. It is useful for people with with large FLAC collections who also want a lossy version for portable media players. If wanted, the script can perform updates by skipping already converted files. It has only been tested on Linux, but it should work without alteration on the other Unix systems with bash and the required dependencies.
