Re: Verifying SBE's with Mac Software

xACT has shntool in it.

You can use it in len mode (I only added the first three files):
length expanded size cdr WAVE problems filename
1:56.74 20636492 --- -- ---xx rs1975-07-13_d1t01.flac
5:25.45 57435884 --- -- ---xx rs1975-07-13_d1t02.flac
4:17.46 45443036 --- -- ---xx rs1975-07-13_d1t03.flac
11:40.15 123515412 B (totals for 3 files, 0.7233 overall compression ratio)

(everything checks out OK here, see an explanation over at

info mode (info for first file only shown):

odd data size has pad byte: n/a

and you can join, split, compare and cue with it also. And then you can also fix the SBEs with it.
