Re: Recommendations for ripping 16-bit and 24-bit to flac

wow there's a lot going on here I'll probably get a chance to read more of it tomorrow

the one big thing I noticed that is a problem is that you can't just rename aif files to wav ... just like if I renamed a shn file to wav it doesn't make it a wav. you can open the aif in a wav editor and resave as wav, or perhaps make the conversion using foobar2000

there's an old tutorial over here, it is for shn to flac but should work for aif to wav. the audio content in the aif and wav will be identical since they're both lossless, just a little bit different formatting.

also, if you've got TLH installed you can run shntool from cmd.exe but in this case I don't think that will help you due to the renamed files.
