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

I haven't got audaccity on this comp but I believe it can do this... just have to be very careful to set the export quality in the preferences to the correct bit depth and sample rate ... so that's a bit of a headache. I'm using CEP which makes it very easy, but not a free prog.

However I've found a simple (and somewhat slower) method...

use flac frontend (, drop the aif file in, set compression to minimum (for speed), then convert to flac. clear flac frontend, then add the flac just created and hit 'decode'. it will give a proper wav file. the flac file that results from this can just be deleted, its just a stepping stone.

I just tested this and it worked great with a 16bit/44.1kHz AIF file. 24bit should be no problem, either. maybe I can double-check that tomorrow just to be sure.

also I gotta read the rest of this humungo thread!!
