I am currently looking into building a collection of old songs. I am looking into ways to digitalise my collection. Can anyone point me to the best way this can be made possible? Also what is the clearest format to keep music? I have always used MP3 but a friend told me that FLAC is the best in terms of quality. Is that true?

The best way to digitize your music collection for a minimal cost is to use Music Collector. This application will automatically catalog your music with all the album details, track lists and cover art. Music Collector simplifies managing, editing, exporting and sharing your database. You can try Music Collector as a trial version for 30 days.

Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is an audio format like MP3. The term "lossless" means that the audio file is compressed without the loss of quality. FLAC provides a higher level of compression because it is designed specifically for audio.



FLAC is the fastest and most supported lossless audio codec. It is the only method that is non-proprietary and has an open-source reference implementation. The format and API are also well-documented.

if you are looking into digitizing your collection then your friend’s suggestion is perfect because one of the best way to store your music collection is into FLAC because FLAC reduces 50%-60% than the original MP3 in size and there hardly a difference in the quality, 320 kbps MP3 and compressed FLAC looks same you can hardly notice a difference, so I think you should go with the FLAC.
