Xld For Mac Os
XLD is one of the most widely used free audio decoder software on Mac OS developed by tmkk. It can convert both lossless and loss audio compression file, including FLAC, AIFF, ALAC, APE, WAV, Wavpack(.wv), TTA, Shorten(.shn), OGG, MP3 (LAME) and so on. It is handy, fast and free for Mac OS users. However, for Windows users, there is not a XLD for Windows to use.

Finally we release Aiseesoft Video Converter Ultimate as XLD's alternative for Windows users. It can do almost all the things on Windows that X Lossless Decoder can do on Mac. If you would like to use the XLD on Windows, just download XLD Windows version.
Aiseesoft Video Converter Ultimate can convert any audio format file to AAC, AC3, AIFF, AMR, AU, FLAC, MP2, MP3, DTS, M4A, ALAC, M4R, M4B, MKA, OGG, WAV and WMA format audio files. It can also extract audio files from video and then convert them to the audio format you want. With the XLD for Windows, you can easily adjust the output audio file's settings, such as audio encoder, Sample Rate, Channels, Audio Bitrate and so on. For FLAC files, this software can analyze the CUE file to split each song from the big FLAC files for you, so you can enjoy the music more conveniently.
Download, install and run the software, you will see the following interface. Click the "Add Files" button on the menu bar. Or you can directly drag the audio file and drop to the interface of the software. The audio files will be listed on the main interface and you can check the name, time duration and other information.
You can easily find the output profile by clicking the "Convert All to" option. Click it and you will see all the profiles you can choose. Go to the "Audio" tab, you will find all the optimized audio profiles.
If you would like to adjust the output settings of the audio, you can easily click the "Custom profile" button next to the profile list. You are enabled to reset the parameters of the output audio files, such as audio encoder, sample rate, channels and audio bitrate. So you can control the output audio's quality easily.
X Lossless Decoder (XLD) is a secure CD ripper and a tool for Mac OS X that is able to decode/convert/play most lossless and lossy audio files. The supported audio files can be encoded/decoded and split into tracks with cue sheet. It works on Mac OS X 10.3 and later.
Other formats supported by Libsndfile are also decodable. XLD does not use the decoder frontend but the library instead to decode, so no intermediate files are generated. All of the supported formats can be directly split with the cue sheet. XLD also supports so-called 'embedded' or 'internal' cue sheet.
Currently you can choose output format from WAVE,AIFF and Raw PCM. In addition, you can choose Ogg Vorbis (aoTuV), MPEG-4 AAC (QuickTime/CoreAudio), MP3 (LAME), Apple Lossless, FLAC, HE-AAC (aacPlus v1/v2), Wave64 and WavPackin the GUI version.
XLD version 20080812 and later can be used as a CD ripper. You can convert each track in your audio CD into the desired format. Also XLD supports output to a CD image with cue sheet (wav+cue, flac+cue, etc).
XLD (X Lossless Decoder) uses the cdparanoia 10.2 libraries ripping and error correcting. XLD can also be used on drives that don't have Accurate Stream and utilize C2 error pointers (see Secure ripping). Additionally the AccurateRip database is used for matching checksums between numerous CD rips.
The frontend and backend of XLD are separated. The frontend is able to access the various decoders with the same interface. In the future various plug-in interfaces will be provided, so that you can easily develop plug-ins for new formats. If you are interested in doing this, please see XLDDecoder.h in the source files.
The source code is included in the archive below and is released under the GPL. Due to the rapid progression of development on XLD it best you consult the source-code on thedevelopers website for the latest builds, which may include new features and binaries that are not listed on this wiki page.

Sorry if this has been answered. I just upgraded my Mac Mini to Big Sur, and XLD does not seem to work. What are folks using as an alternative? I downloaded some FLAC files and need to convert them to ALAC to get them into my iTunes library. (Am I correct that the Music app wont do this?)
That "feature" has been in Mac OS for some time now. Checking the box to allow apps from other developers was one of the first things I did. Before it was possible to find the app in finder and right click it, select open, it would ask for the administrator password, and then it would work fine.
I develop RoaringApps in my (rather limited) spare time, so sometimes I miss bugs here and there. If you notice something not quite working properly, or have an idea for the site, I'd love to hear from you.
I'm new to the Mac, and I'm trying to rip some audio CDs using XLD. It starts up and rips one track, and then gives an error, saying it can't read any of the other tracks. OS X can't see the audio disc any more either, as though the drive has ejected itself. This is an LG external USB drive. The drive door won't open, either, as if it's stuck in some usage state.

The LG is the only drive I have... it would be nice to solve this in software rather than purchase another drive, but in case I do need to purchase another drive, do you have a recommendation of brand? Anything particularly good and compatible with Macs?
Actually I don't know any other newcomers with fancy names to ODD scene, I use professionally custom build VPD Optiarc drives with external 5,25" cases, with M-Disc support. Works very well with any Mac I have, with XLD too.
What version of Mac OS X are you using? My first guess is that it sounds like a hardware connection problem between the drive and the computer...possibly defective drive, defective USB port, or defective/incompatible bridge chip converter)...but then it is strange that you have no problems with iTunes.
If you do want to try another drive, as far as I can tell, there are only two CD/DVD ODD manufactures left - LG and LiteOn (that is to say, any other brand ODD will simply be a LG or LiteOn drive with their own name plastered on). Between those two, definitely go with LiteOn! Also, a half hight drive should have higher rip speeds compared with a slim style drive.
I borrowed a slim style LG DVD-R/W (actually says "Mac compatible" on the package) and it works fine with XLD. My other drive was old and may have been malfunctioning or incompatible with Mac. I think I'll look to buy a modern LiteOn if I can find one that explicitly says "Mac compatible".
OK, if you have tired another LG drive and that works, it does sound like there may be something up with your original drive! If you want to tinker a bit more though, there are a few things you can try.
3) Download the previous version of XLD (20151128) and see if that works. The current version of XLD (20151214) includes a fix for the problem mention above....maybe the fix made things worse for some LG drives?
If none of these work, it does sound like your best option is just replace your older drive. I wouldn't worry too much about the drive advertising that it is "Mac Compatible" since all external ODD should be fine on a MAC. Other advice is make sure to find a drive with its own power supply (ie one that plugs into the wall), since Macs tend to have underpowered USB slots that may not be able to power all drives that are not self powered. I would also recommend avoiding Apple's external SuperDrive, since those are made with cheap LG slot loading drives.
Thanks for the information. I'm getting along fine with the slim style LG I borrowed, so I probably don't need a work horse. It will take me a while to rip my entire CD collection, but I've got time. I've already ripped enough music to keep me busy listening for many evenings. I chose my favorite music first.
I have problem with transcoding Wav (+.cue) to FLAC file (to separate songs). Usually no problems with Wav format, only problem with: Audio Codec : WavPack, rip type : image + .cue, Recording format : 32/96
I've been looking at different software for ripping, deciding between apps for MAC and Windows. XLD seem to be a real winner, good balance between "tweakability" and ease of use. My issue is that when I try to rip CD's to FLAC, it shows up as an unrecognized file on my MAC. It shows as that strange "exec" file in green writing against a black thumbnail. Try opening it, and my machine simply will not. I tried downloading flac 1-2-3, but not sure if that was even necessary - or even something that would correspond to MAC. Plus, I was thinking that the FLAC driver would automatically be part of the XLD download? 350c69d7ab
