Audio Conversion: FLAC to WAV


I am looking for a linux utility (command and GUI are both fine) that allows me to convert between lossless audio file types such as flac, wav, shn, and etc.

Any suggestions?

I tried google, but did not come up with anything. I appreciate your input.

as for converting anything to wav.. use whatever format's player, they should have options to extract to wav file. mpg321 has a -w option. vorbis has oggdec. both lossy formats and therefore not that helpful.

as far as I know you can use flac -d to decode flac.
a program that converts between many formats, as far as I know doesn't exist. if you want to convert between lots of the same file types I wrote a mp3 to vorbis script I would be glad to modify to work with your formats.

Code:
flac -d file.flac
Also try sox. It is the swiss army pen of audio formats.
