command-line WMA encoder/decode?

Curious if anyone knows of a command-line tool for encoding and decoding WMA files? If not, what are some sensible well designed GUI based converts for WMA?

I need some tools to help me manage and convert my entire 200+ CD collection that I have all in WMA lossless format (to WMA/Pro/VBR, maybe mp3), and also to convert FLAC/APE/WAV to WMA Lossless and similar.

I'm not sure if Windows Media Encoder can do it, but I know that dBpoweramp can definitely do it via the command line.

ffmpeg should be fine for decoding common WMA files (lossy, mono/stereo).

wmal2pcm.exe converts lossless-WMAs to multichannel .WAV.

For encoding, you could try: wm8eutil.exe and wav2wma.exe.

HTH.
