HOW TO CONVERT /DECODE TO .wav FILES

 

I am assuming you have already installed the FLAC program and have a shortcut now on your desktop

 

 

When you click on the FLAC Icon (which you put on your desktop)

This is what you first see

First Step is to change the OUTPUT Directory

This is so that when you convert the FLAC files it will go in the correct file folder (Directory)

Select the Directory where the converted files will go

Select the file or files you wish to convert to .wav

hold down the shift key as you click (select) the files you want to decode

It will then put the selected files into the FLAC program to process

Next step is to DECODE

 

Click on the DECODE BUTTON

A DOS window will open and the decoding process will begin

You can see the real time decode process

And you can see the files going into the output directory

That is the basic steps on decode FLAC to .wav files

 

For explanations of the rest you should refer to the documentation
