FLAC to Apple Lossless, is it lossless?

Post by bmoorhouse » Sun Apr 27, 2008 9:09 pm

I purchased several songs from an artist website. Unfortunately, the only lossless option the artist provided was FLAC. If I use Max to convert the FLAC files to Apple Lossless, will the results still be lossless? Seems to me they should be, but I want to make sure as I will probably delete the FLAC files ones I am finished.

Most definitely; do it all the time. Just be sure to pick the correct format. Max's formats info could be better. For ALAC you want the first of the two MPEG4 Audio choices and then choose Lossless.
