Burning FLAC to CD

Postposted on Wed Oct 21, 2009 10:00 am

I've got some projects I'm exporting from Sonar as FLAC (because I am not paying for their MP3 export plugin, and I have not been able to get LAME configured properly; it just fails on me) and then I want to burn them to a CD. It's just rough MIDI stuff I'm putting on CD, we use it for - well that's not important because someone's going to turn this into R&P. At any rate, I want to burn these FLAC files as an audio CD

I need a media app that can do two things:

1.) read/understand FLAC audio
2.) burn that audio to CD as an audio CD

Winamp can do it, but unless you pay for Winamp Pro, it can't burn any faster than 2x. Not a big deal for this particular project (because it's 15 minutes of audio, it's 7 minutes or so for a CD. I can live with that), but I'd like to see if I can get it done for free. Any suggestions?
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

dbPowerAmp.

2nd choice: Open Winamp, set the output to WAV. Put your files in the playlist, play them. It will play FLAC to WAV on the disk. Pick up WAV files, burn onto CD.

That Burrrn app looks perfect for this task, as these are exported from Sonar to a temp location and then burned, not somethign I want in my media library on a permanent basis.

dBpoweramp looks like it could be useful for alot of other uses, but not quite what I was going for. :) If I were going to buy something for this purpose, it'd be Cakewalk's MP3 plugin, though. Sonar could export in other formats, but FLAC was my preferred format due to its size and quality. These projects are used once for "public performance" purposes and as far as I know never used again.

That'll be one of the survey pop-up ands currently under investigation by the higher-ups. They're expected to be nuked soon enough.

You also want to make sure that your CD player can read FLAC audio format. FLAC support is still very sketchy among CD and MP3 players.

He's burning it as an ordinary audio CD. The app he wanted in question should convert it from FLAC (and not all can).

Heh, I thought Audio CD = Redbook. While data CD with audio files = Yellowbook.

Foobar2000 also has a very nice mass tagger/converter feature. It'll pretty much convert any audio format to any other format.
