FLAC > TOAST > AUDIO CD > ITUNES = APPLE LOSSLESS!

my method

1. drag flac's to toast
2. put 0 seconds between tracks
3. convert to audio cd
4. mount the audio cd
5. open itunes and import to apple lossless


for some reasons I like convert my flac files to apple lossless using toast, for mount on itunes and get track names and convert to apple lossless...

my question is if I loose quality from the original flac? I dont want loose quality

I think that toast convert to audio cd (wav) right???

My fear is that I recently see the options for CONVERT FILES on toast and the render to wav say normal, better, best... so toast do the same when convert to audio cd? I dont want normal qualities... I want the best...

please help

Maybe I'm missing something, but if the FLAC have tags...

By "convert to audio cd" and "mount the audio cd" are you burning to CD-R/RW, or are you just working with an image and a virtual drive?

If you're actually writing to physical media and reading you'll find that the audio data will be shifted in time unless you're taking measures to prevent this.

I mention this so that you won't be surprised that checksums of the audio data between the source flacs and Apple lossless target files will be different, surely indicating that the process is not exactly lossless.

Does the command "Get CD Track Names" under "Advanced" in iTunes get enough information for you? If it does, you could go direct FLAC to ALAC, as kewl suggests.
