HD Convert offers two conversion options: free and premium. When using the free option, an audible watermark is evident and the quality is capped just below HD. However, the premium option removes the watermark and unlocks enhanced quality, creating an immersive FLAC, audio clip.
With that being said, we must mention that the final converted file (FLAC) is dependant on the file you originally submitted for conversion. For example, if you upload a low-quality MP3 file, the quality of this cannot be improved. Instead, you would need to re-record the audio clip or save it in a different file format immediately.

Why convert your video format to FLAC?
Most users are familiar with more mainstream audio file formats, such as MP3 and WAV. Despite FLAC being less well know, it’s an extension file formatted to challenge MP3. Much like MP3 files, FLAC contains lossless compression. So, what are the benefits of lossless compression? Lossless compression allows you to reduce the file size without sacrificing on quality, great for sending via email or uploading to the cloud.
However, FLAC files contain significantly higher-quality than MP3 files. This makes them great when high-quality audio is required, perhaps for a documentary, CD, or project; more on the benefits below.
What are the benefits of using the FLAC format?
There are numerous benefits of using a FLAC file; however, these include:
High-quality, especially when compared to other formats
Resistant to numerous errors
As previously discussed, FLAC files contain lossless compression. Lossless compression allows you to reduce the final file size quality without sacrificing on quality. Reducing overall file size allows you to upload files to the cloud or send via email with ease.
Also, FLAC formats are also high-quality, especially when compared to other formats such as MP3. The FLAC file format is a competitor to more traditional audio formats, one you should consider for a crisp final product.
Finally, FLAC file formats are resistant to numerous errors, even if one frame of the file is corrupted, the rest of the file will still play. This allows you to go back and remove the corrupt file instead of restarting the entire project.
Are there any downsides?
Regardless of which audio or video file you choose to convert between, there will always be caveats. In this instance, FLAC file formats are generally much larger in file size than other formats, approximately 5 MB of audio per minute.
With that being said, lossless compression is available. This allows you to reduce the file size without sacrificing quality. This is one of the only downsides of the FLAC file format, other than that FLAC is a strong competitor to the more traditional MP3 file format.
As aforementioned, HD Convert comes with two conversion options: free and premium. As to be expected, the free option is available to all, but has some limitations. These limitations include an audible watermark and quality capped just below HD.
On the other hand, purchasing a premium package removes the audible watermark and unlocks immersive, HD audio quality. Similarly, the conversion process is quicker and there is no file size limit, allowing you to convert whatever audio file you choose.
Furthermore, all uploaded files are momentarily saved on the HD Convert servers. In the event that your connection is lost, you can resume the conversion process with little to no interruption, saving you time and effort. Once the 24-hour period has ended, all uploaded files are automatically deleted.
So, how do you know if the premium package is for you? If you require high-quality audio with no watermarks, then the premium package is likely for you. For example, high-quality audio may be required for a school or college project, documentary, or even a CD mix. To find out more about HD Convert premium, click here.

Converting your audio clips to FLAC and other formats have never been easier. The FLAC file format, although less well-known is a serious rival to more traditional formats, such as MP3 and WAV.
Similarly to MP3, FLAC files also contain lossless compression whilst maintaining excellent audio quality, better than MP3, in fact. Also, FLAC files contain fewer errors than other formats, creating a smooth and enjoyable audio experience for all, even if things go partially wrong.
Remember: the free version of HD Convert contains an audible watermark and limits the quality, but is good enough for basic projects or CDs. On the other hand, purchasing a premium package unlocks HD and ultra HD quality and removes the watermark, creating an immersive and enjoyable audible experience.
