Converting FLAC to WAV (Free Software)

I can't believe in 2014 people still do not know how to convert FLAC to WAV.

The link here is for some free software called dBpoweramp which will convert most music file extensions i.e. mp3, AAC. FLAC etc

Just download the files, extract it like a normal RAR and then double click the software (It is safe as I use it myself everyday)

Find the files you need to convert, click convert, go to the dropdown box and click on the WAV etc and tell it the files destination (usually the original file is the best place) and the files are then converted to WAV etc. and can be burned to a CD.

Regards DC2012

Don't Panic! (Update 16th June 2014)


As some of you may have noticed i have deleted many posts from 2012 & 2013. But I have left all the compilations and I will be adding new links as soon as I get the time.

All the old posts will gradually reappear, but this time they will be new HQ rips. This obviously will take me some time so please have some patience. I will also be upgrading the 2014 posts in the near future too.

Regards DC2012


Update 13th June '14 - I have tested all the links for 2012's posts, and only 1 is not working. (Going To A DC Disco Party) This will be uploaded as soon as i get the time. I will test all the 2013 links next week and update all those that are not working. Again if you find a 2012, 2013 or 2014 link not working please let me know by emailing me on - cleanvinylrecords@gmx.com

Update 16th June 2014 - I have now tested all the 2012 & 2013 links and all appear to be working correctly. I will upload 2 new links for the 2012 posts I found that were dead.
