.FLAC in OpenMPT
« on: December 22, 2016, 01:46:48 »
Can you open .FLAC in OpenMPT?

This post says that it is/was implemented https://forum.openmpt.org/index.php?topic=4884.0 but I don't see that anywhere within OpenMPT

FLAC is supported as Export format for Lossless and as a valid format for Samples.

Okay, thank you. The thing is like I have this file that is to a song which I'm guessing could be the module. However, it's in FLAC and I was maybe questioning whether or not you could change the format

FLAC and modules are fundamentally different file formats. FLACs can be imported as samples into modules, but not as songs themselves. A FLAC file only contains a stream of audio (a sample), not note data like a module.
Searching the manual for "FLAC" will show you all the places where you can load FLAC samples.
