# 2013-07-08 FLAC to MP3

Note to self: Assume you have a set of subdirectories named CD01, CD02, and so on, each containing a single FLAC file and a single CUE file, here’s how to convert them to MP3:

for d in CD*; do
cd $d for f in *.cue; do n=basename "$f" .cue
echo xld -c "$n.cue" "$n.flac"
xld -c "$n.cue" "$n.flac" -f mp3
done
cd ..
done

This uses XLD, also known as “X Lossless Decoder: Lossless audio decoder for Mac OS X”. Yay!
