XRecode II Portable is an audio grabber and file converter that is free to download and has a very small size (9 MB). Although the XRecode3 version was released earlier this year, the earlier version is still remarkably reliable and covers a wide variety of audio-related functions, particularly given how much you get without having to pay. The program's primary claim to fame is the sheer number of different file types that can be converted; in essence, if you need to convert an audio file from one type to another, you'll almost certainly be covered.

In addition to converting audio file types, this program allows several files to be merged together into a single large audio file. It has support for LossyWav and both 24 and 32-bit audio files as well. There are several other features built in as well, such as the support for embedded CUE sheets and splitting MP4 and mka by chapters. It's also fairly easy to use, although the Wiki and forums tend to focus on the newer version.

One interesting aspect of XRecode II Portable is that, since (as the name indicates) it's portable, it can run directly from a USB drive; it doesn't have to be installed. It's also worth noting that the UI can be resized, so it'll fit nicely onto desktops, laptops, netbooks, and so forth.

Covers a huge variety of different format types.

Overall the program is easy to use for any audiophile or somebody looking to convert their media files, so it gets my recommendation.

  • Shareware -- free to try
  • A massive number of different file types eligible to be converted from
  • Can split mp4 chapters
  • No installation required -- runs directly from the USB drive
  • Easy export or import of Metadata to or from external files
  • Multilanguage support, including English, French, Spanish, Japanese, German, simplified Chinese, and many more.
I love using XRecode II Portable for Windows, because the program lets me quickly transform my audio files to other file formats. Whether you want to transform a single file for processing or you want to load a full batch of them, this program can handle your needs. It's compatible with a wide range of formats including but not limited to MP3, OGG, AC3 and WAV.
