    Foobar2000 can do it, and it will keep your tags.

    Just load the songs to the playlist, select them, right click, convert and choose your settings.

    What he said.


    Plus it has the site to get the plug ins for even more formats so it is very versatile and easy to use.

    I think you may have to get the FLAC codec and install it on your computer first. Its been so long I cant remember.

    All you do is select your songs press convert and select your output format. For example if your starting format is FLAC you select the output format to any of the mp3 variants you want and then select the folder or location you want it to be stored.

    Lame encoder is for MP3 related stuff.

    Download it too.

    Both LAME and FLAC are free downloads.
