dBpowerAMP Music Converter is a tool that can encode several audio formats (including CDA, FLAC, MP4, MPEG, MP3, WAV) to others (e.g. AIFF, M4A, FLAC, MP3, WAV).
Once you install the application, you will see that there are actually three separate parts installed – “Music Converter”, “Batch Converter” and “CD Ripper“.
In “Music Converter”, you first need to select the audio track you want to encode, after which you can configure settings and initiate the conversion process.
