The extra header chunks were removed with a .bat file (comand line) I created [shntool -strip function] with the help of RainDawg.

I understand your point about making a [shntool] .st5 text result file, which I will do. Then convert to .flac, compare the ffp's to the .st5 prints to verify the identical prints. but what if I want to keep the files in .shn format? is that necessary. I mean I have already have a text file with the lineage, (this is moreover a unlikely case) but wont most people question why I went from shn to flac? and start addressing issues, should such issues arrive?.......just wondering....

your post will come in handy when I do release this recording that I've had sitting on my PC for months.
