Default Audio converting software!

Searching for a good free audio format converter - FLAC\M4A\APE\WMA\MP3 etc...
Any suggestions guys?
Thanks in advance!

I've used MediaCoder (the AudioCoder edition) for about 200 or so FLAC to MP3 transcodes for my phone.
MediaCoder - more than a universal audio/video transcoder - MediaCoder official website
It works and it's free, but I wouldn't exactly call it good given how many times it freezes if you ask it to use more than one thread to do the transcoding.

I suggest command line transcoders straight from the codec developer, if you want a GUI, use Foobar2000. Fast, efficient, accurate, and full control over compression level.

What ilya said, foobar2000 is an amazing media medium, i've been using it for years and i LOVE the plugin support and simplicity. Doesn't struggle at all with 20,000+ songs either like itunes/WMP do.
