Batch convert FLAC to WAV

Sometimes you might want to convert audio files from FLAC format to WAV format. In this article I’ll explain how you can easily do a batch conversion from FLAC to WAV from the terminal window.

Open a Terminal window and go to the folder that is holding your FLAC files. Now enter the following command (of course you can copy and paste) :

for f in *.flac; do flac -d “$f”; done

For example:
$ cd Audio/Wanderen/Ready4Conversion
$ for f in *.flac; do flac -d “$f”; done

The example above converts all FLAC audio files in the folder “Audio/Wanderen/Ready4Conversion” to WAV files.
