FLAC Profile Editor Functions

Selecting an Existing Profile

Press the arrow next to the Profile field and pick up a profile from the drop-down list. The same can be done by pressing the downward arrow below the FLAC button on the Convert Tab.

Adjusting Default Settings

To create your own profile you'll need to change at least one of the parameters listed below the Profile field. You can modify the following audio track parameters:

  • Codec
    Defines the codec used for audio file compression. The only available is FLAC.
  • Channels
    Defines the number of channels in an output file. Press the arrow next to the Channels field to open the drop-down menu and select one of the available sound systems. You can use Mono (single-channel audio) in case the size of audio files is crucial as converting stereo to mono nearly halves the files size practically without affecting its quality.
  • Bitrate
    This is the number of bits that are transferred or processed per second. By default this parameter is set to 768 kbps and cannot be altered.
  • Sample Rate
    This value (also referred to as Sampling Rate or Sampling Frequency) defines the number of samples per second taken from a continuous analogue signal to make it a discrete digital signal. Press the arrow to open the drop-down list and select one of the available sample rate values. As a rule, setting a higher sample rate improves the audio file quality and increases its size.
  • Sample Size
    This value defines the size of samples taken from a continuous analogue signal to make it a discrete digital signal. Press the arrow next to the Sample Size field to open the drop-down list and select one of the available sample size value. Increasing the sample size improves sound quality, but doubles file size.

Saving Changes

Proceed directly to converting your files by pressing Convert Now! in the Output Audio Area to apply the newly introduced parameters to one particular conversion only.

Saving Changes as a New Profile

Use the Save button near the Profile field if you wish to use the newly introduced settings in future. Enter a name for the new profile in the opened Profile Name window:

Save Profile window

The new profile will be available in the list of default conversion profiles after you save it as described above. To delete the profile, select it with the mouse in the list of profiles and press Delete.

Note!Note: we do not guarantee good conversion results if you change any of the default settings within FLAC Profile Editor. Therefore, it is advisable to use profile editors only in case you are well-experienced in audio conversion. We recommend you to use the default conversion profiles if you are new to audio conversion. Our developers created profiles with well-balanced parameters that ensure good quality conversion results.
