X Lossless Decoder

2018101920 October 2018

Encode, transcode, and play various music file formats.

Overview

X Lossless Decoder(XLD) is a tool for Mac OS X that is able to decode/convert/play various 'lossless' audio files. The supported audio files can be split into some tracks with cue sheet when decoding. It works on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.

XLD is Universal Binary, so it runs natively on both Intel Macs and PPC Macs.

Other formats supported by Libsndfile are also decodable. XLD uses not decoder frontend but library 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.

XLD supports various output formats. It can convert audio files into WAVE, AIFF, Raw PCM, Ogg Vorbis (aoTuV), MPEG-4 AAC (QuickTime/CoreAudio), MP3 (LAME), Apple Lossless, FLAC, HE-AAC (aacPlus v1/v2), Wave64, WavPack, and IETF Opus.

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 a CD image with cue sheet (wav+cue, flac+cue, etc).

Anyone who didn't give this five stars is a moron. It is extremely powerful and accurate. And FREE! What do you want? Your nails done? I'm grateful to the developer for taking the time to make this software. THANK YOU Similar Software! I appreciate your hard work!

Hello,
I need a bit help with XLD installation.
When I click on the .dmg file it opens a folder containing the XLD app and additional 3 folders. What should I move to applications folder, only the XLD app or all 4 items?
Thank you

So great to see this update, this is by far the best audio converter for macOS. The UI is simple, yet incredibly well designed. As an example, entering or modifying metadata is just a joy to use with well thought out keyboard shortcuts to power through this otherwise tedious task. Great to see this is now 64bit (future proofing), and gets an experimental dark mode for Mojave!!! Don't forget to donate to keep this incredible gem of a tool alive and kicking.
