Re: FLAC, SHN, Conversions, etc...A virtual potpourri

PS I just did a meansurement of the dbPowerAmp FLAC conversion, and it takes about twice as long to convert a set from WAV > FLAC using "high" as it does to convert using the command-line codec on "8". Whatever db uses as it's graphical frontend must be inserting some very inefficient overhead into the process. This isn't really a problem, just a bit of an long as the files are the same, it doesn't matter to me how long it takes to convert.

SHN > FLAC direct conersion takes a LOT longer than the same thing with foobar2000. I still like the easy right-click features db has, so will probably use it anyway,
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
