    It's been awhile since I've done this, but I think you can rip a CD to both FLAC and mp3 at the same time if you know you want a lossy version.
    Here's another enthusiastic endorsement for dbPoweramp. But it's not a free tool, you ave to buy it. It's also by far the best ripping tool for Windows.

    Yes you can rip to multiple formats
    Exact audio copy is also a good ripper for Windows but doesnĺt have the conversion tools of dbPoweramp

    the dbpa forum is very helpful on questions.
    https://forum.dbpoweramp.com/

    And on almost every page of program options, etc. there are "?". They are not that obvious, but clicking can bring up detailed info on options and settings. For example, see these screen shots. These ? links are on lots of pages, so be sure to click on them.
