Re: Converting SHN to FLAC?

The new ST5 fingerprints did not match the MD5 fingerprints listed on the info sheet. Oddly enough, after conversion to FLAC, the new MD5 matched the ST5 the way delfman said it should. Would I be safe in assuming that there has been some "tweaking" done to the recordings that wasn't mentioned in the info sheet and account for it? or just leave all the info in a heap for someone else to figure out?
If you convert shn to flac directly the fingerprints will not match to the originals.
you need to first convert the shns to wav then the wavs to flac if you want the fp's to match the originals.
