hello ladies and gentlemen and welcome to this review of FLE AC the free audio converter it is a free audio converter on CD extractor for Microsoft Windows Linux Mac OS and FreeBSD it is distributed under the GNU General Public License besides extracting audio from compact discs free audio converter can also
00:32
convert audio files from one format to another or to the same format but a lower bitrate so let's go and take a look at the software I am now on the free audio converter website the link will be in the description below so as you can see it welcomes you to the project and just explains what it is about there's also
01:04
various blog entries explaining about its development during alpha and beta stages before general release and then if I scroll back up to the top of the page we have all the links so now we have alpha releases and also the main release so I'm going to download the version that's 1.0 0.2 now that I've got
01:37
free audio converter version 1.0 0.3 to install let's take a look around the software so let's start in the left hand corner of the screen at the top so to start off we we've got file and then the file we've got AB so we can add files AB CD contents then we've got audio file as well as audio CD
02:10
contents so underlay or the LCD contents as you can see it's literally be drives that are on my Windows machine and then on the app we've got remove Lord job list save job list clear job list and exit then on the file we've got database so
02:39
this is basically what you use to retrieve you see the information of the internet such as artist album title what they are is name is as well as the track titles and all the track lists for the CDs and this is done by all these various options that are in this list such as query CD database submit CD database data query CD database for
03:14
later sure queried CD database entries as well as queries then we've got an able CD there's to be as cache which is on by default which basically caches any CD information but you might go straight from a CD so if you were to read it later it doesn't have to go to the internet to find that via to it you can just looking at some local cache and then retrieve the information from there
03:43
then under that we've got manage CD database caching entries and automatic CD database queries then next we've got options under options we've got general settings configure selected encoder and active cd-rom drives so I have two in my machine the next two options we have
04:12
incurred which is basically to start the encoding process to pause or issue human as well as stop encoding and then under start encoding we've got various options we've got all the far mats that you can pretty much select to encode a file including FLAC mp3 ogg windows media audio anchored and windows with file
04:46
output now let's take a look at these general settings option so if I go to options and then general settings this window comes up so we've got encoders so under encoders it's currently selected under the Liam mp3 encoder version 3.1 hundred but there's a drop-down so if I drop it down I can select all the
05:17
encoders for all the different formats that are available in this software but for this demonstration I'm going to leave it as mp3 then next alarm we've got configure encoder so if I click on that another window comes up and we've got all the encoding configuration options so we've got basic so under presets my preset is currently custom and then
05:48
on the way we've got variable bitrate mod so you can select variable bitrate so when you encode it and a bit rate fluctuates from very high to very low to medium we've got average bitrate which is just an average taken from the lowest bit rate in the highest bitrate and then below that we've got couldn't bitrate which is not variable so it just is I
06:23
couldn't bitrate at all times which I've selected and I've also selected to set the bitrate to 320 kilobit as well as the quality as zero which in this instance zero is better and if I change it you'll see that the numbers increase but like I say zero is better so if I make it ten sorry if I make it
06:53
nine nine is worse than zero so I'm gonna put that back to zero and I'm gonna click ok then next day encoders we've got playlists which I've just left those defaults but it's just saying yeah anything that's incurred they've put it in my music folder and then we've got languages again I've left this as default some in english-speaking users
07:25
so I've left it is English then we've got Ripper and the Ripper it selected my default physical CD drive because as I mentioned earlier I've got - I've got one physical drive on one virtual one so I'm gonna have the physical one selected at all times it also tells you the maximum drive speed which in my case is
07:52
for EAX speed it says read CD text and also read CD play by default and then on the automation we've got read CD contents on insert as well as CD options which are lock CD tree whilst ripping so that prevents you from what we flip mean you drive and damaging you you CD drive
08:24
as well as use native NT SCSI libraries which I've left is default then next we've got CD database on the CD their service I've just left all these just by default so it says enable remote CD database so I've left it is hit HTTP request which is on part eighty and then I've also left the default options
08:58
enable to automatic CD database queries prefer CD database over CD text and then able CD database cache then next to the database searching we've got plugins which I've only got a output warning installed which is without output version 2.0 point to point a which is just default and then none on the input
09:30
and then we've got info our targets under info types it's going to write tags free version two it's going to write verbose comment tags right and be for metadata info right WME metadata info and then i've just left all the encoding its default which it all here
10:02
and you can also have a default comment string which you can keep obviously really low you can delete it so it just tells you what piece of software used and the URL where you can get the software from before I convert the former from flak into mp3 I'm going to show you the current state of the file the audio file that I have created is in the FLAC
10:36
format the free lossless audio codec the file size is 1.89 megabyte this is a recording that I'm going to export as a flat file a free lossless audio format I'm then going to convert it into an mp3 now let's take a quick look at all the icons that are part of the software before I convert the file
11:09
most of these icons I've already previously covered in the actual menus but I just thought it would be nice to also cover these as well so to start with we've got me add audio files icon and next to that we've got add audio CD contents remove selected entry clear lantry's job list query CD database
11:44
submit CD database data configure general settings configure the selected audio encoders start the encoding process pause or resume encoding and stop encoding and then just here we've got play pause stop rewind fast-forward and eject CD from CD Drive
12:21
now it's time to convert the file so as you can see I've just dragged and dropped the flat file into the software from my projects one folder so the file name is untitled doctor it also tells you the length in minutes and seconds as well as the file size so to convert it into mp3 because I've already set all the presets and the collecting clothing all I'm gonna do it
12:54
just quickly start encoding button here and the process will start now once it's finished as you can see it's removed the file from the job list that's what you've got to do in order to convert a file I am now going to drag the converted mp3 into the software just to show you that it's being done so as you can see it has been correctly being
13:24
converted with the dot mp3 extension it's also shows you the track length which is 15 seconds as before as well as the file size which is obviously significantly smaller than the flat file as the mp3 has been compressed into a lossy format at the compression rate of 320 kilobits and that concludes my
