Re: converting mpc ->wav

even better, convert it to FLAC:
http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ead.php?t=1112

substitute "MPC" whenever you see "SHN" and away you go.

If you just want to decompress it to WAV I think Monkey's Audio frontend (linked in my sig) can do that... or else try Multi Fronted or one of a billion others. I would convert it to FLAC so that you can trade the files in a format everyone's using.

edit: here's another useful link: http://www.musepack.net/

Is musepack strictly lossless?

Dbpoweramp Music Converter will do it.

http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm

Then get the Musepack codec from the codec page - http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central.htm

well, since the obvious "just use foobar2000" (tm) has already been posted, let me just add this:

musepack is strictly lossy (albeit arguably the best codec among the transparent lossy ones)

Re: converting mpc ->wav

thanks ssamadhi! so the best thing to do is not to convert it to WAV or FLAC or whatever, leave it as .mpc so that people can immediately tell what it is. About the only purpose for converting to WAV would be to burn an audio cd which should never be traded as such since it's lossy-sourced.
