Re: software for making CD's out of Shn. and Flac 24 bit.

You don't have to pay $$ to burn audio CD's on windows
Exact Audio Copy will burn audio CD's for free http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/

download these freeware programs: flac frontend to decode .flac's to wav, Michael K. Wiese audio compression tool to decode .shn's to wav, and the Monkey's frontend to decode .ape's to wav

verify that your downloads are sucessful by running the md5 (shn) doing a flac test (flac), not sure about ape

once the wavs have been decoded, drag and drop them one at a time into Exact Audio Copy (use tools > write CD-R) and burn. name the files (triple left click) if you want to write CD-text

24 bit flac files cannot be burned to audio CD. go here:
http://24bit.turtleside.com/

You can listen to flac's (including 24 bit even if you don't have a 24 bit soundcard, it will dither?, truncate and downsample for you) and shn's with Winamp without decoding to wav, just download the flac and shn plugins, don't know about ape's

I believe Windows will burn data CD's with its own internal program for archiving the flac, ape and shn files. It is a good idea to archive, esp. if you trade and mandatory if you seed/reseed here. Archiving to data DVD-R is much easier cause you can burn lots of shows on 1 disc. I don't know if Windows will burn data DVD-R's without an additional software program.

Re: software for making CD's out of Shn. and Flac 24 bit.

here is a better description of how to burn (I couldn't edit my last post)

once the wavs have been decoded, open Exact Audio Copy (use tools > write CD-R). Once you are in the CD layout editor drag and drop them one at a time into the window. go to layout > uncheck the "add 2 second gaps on append." name the files (triple left click on a track) if you want to write CD-text. you can also write artist, show date/album title by going layout > edit cd information. finally, go to CD-R > write CD. choose your speed, close cd, then burn. if you have trouble burning at a high speed, try a lower speed. I always burn at about 8X because I've heard this results in a deeper burn and longer lasting disc (but this may be a myth?)

werd...a correction to my earlier post, i always assume folks are wanting to burn both audio and DVD discs, which is why i recommend ONES...if yer only going to be burning CDRs, then definitely follow what Tubular suggested for burning with EAC...TLH will handle everything else

Re: software for making CD's out of Shn. and Flac 24 bit.

Even if you get ONES or Nero to burn audio CD's, data CD's, video CD's, video DVD's, and data DVD's, Exact Audio Copy is still a great program to have. It is the best program available for Windows to copy audio CD's to your hard drive. It has secure mode error correcting extraction. EAC will try to read bad sectors several times, and will only give up and report an error after lots of attempts to get a good rip. There is also burst mode, which may read badly damaged CD's better than secure mode. Also, all the offsets can be corrected: read, write, and combined read/write.
