How to convert .flac to .mp3 in Mac OS X?

I use Max, a freeware.

Setting up Max

  • Go to Max’s Preferences.
  • Click on the “Format” tab, and select “MP3” from the list of Available Output Format. Now click on the “+” button. Finally, make sure you tick the “MP3” option. The Format screen should look like this.
  • Click on the “Output” tab, and set “Same as source files” for the Output Files option.

Convert .flac to .mp3

  • Launch Max, and you’ll see this File Conversion window (otherwise select “Convert Files” from the File menu.)
  • Drag and drop or click on the “+” button to select your .flac files.
  • Click on the “Convert” icon to start the conversion.
