FLAC reader / writer for Max


    Oct 07 2007 | 10:05 am
    Dear all, I'm looking for a Max external that read and save audio file in FLAC file format ( http://flac.sourceforge.net ), for both OSX and XP.
    I just would be sure that it doesn't exist before start writing it in C.
    Thanks

      i don't know about any readymade externals, but on osx one easy solution is to call the flac command-line prog with the [shell] object. this works quite nicely. i guess there is something similar on win. then again, this might not be the answer you were looking for. vb
