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

http://24bit.turtleside.com/

Most anyone with a DVD player will be able to play it these days, it's really exciting! You need Audio DVD Creator ($40) to make an audio only DVD-Video disc playable on most DVD players. DVD-Video supports 16/48, 24/48, and 24/96 audio. And the free program DVD-Audiofile creates true DVD-Audio discs, playable on DVD-Audio/Video players. With DVD-Audio discs you can burn 16/44.1 all the way up to 24/192. This means I can put about 7 hours of 16/44.1 audio on one 4.7 GB DVD-A disc!! So instead of burning 6 CDs for two shows, I burn one DVD-A!! I love it.

TLH protests at the 24-bit wav files, though....

Warning: file 'V CATSE .WAV' is not CD-quality
Warning: file 'V LHKEEP.WAV' is not CD-quality
Warning:
Warning: file 'V SPHINX.WAV' is not CD-quality
Error: could not fix files due to errors, see above

Maybe try encoding the 24 bit wavs to FLAC in FLAC Frontend (level 8, verify, SBE align, everything else unchecked).

they are two different file types

you can not just rename a .aiff to .wav

its a conversion process - I use quicktime pro.

Perhaps someone should mention this to roann. It might not be too hard for him to make TLH accept aif files. xACT will accept both wav and aif to encoding and will decode to either also.

(I, like Five, have not read this whole thread but it looks like something I should!)

This seems to work OK, but can't enable SBE align, FLAC frontend protests, saying it can only do this with 44.1kHz files. Removed this option, and all seems to be OK. Next thing to do is make a torrent with them, upload and see if the good folk of The Den can play them OK.

Thanks, people, for all the help!

Now that I've got 3 .flac files, how do I generate a checksum file for them? TLH usually does that for me ....

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

there should be a 'fingerprint' button on flac frontend that can generate these fingerprints for you.

Tried it, and it seems to generate an empty .txt file......

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

hmm... I haven't posted a 24-bit FLAC show before, but I see scads of them on our tracker with ffp fingerprints posted someway

when you open the txt file using notepad it is blank? what is the filesize? if its over 0k can you attatch it here?

OK, I got it - 'add' the flac files into FLAC frontend (not the .wav files) and click fingerprint............

I guess the SBEs aren't so much of an issue with 24bit shows

next time, you could cut the show in audacity using 'snap to cdda sectors' if you want the 24bit version to match better with the 16bit... that is, if you're planning on also creating a 16bit version

If I'm doing a 16-bit and 24-bit version, I can create both directly from the Masterlink; with 24-bit files on the HDD, it will let me burn either a 'red book' 16-bit CD, or a CD24 (with .aif files). Despite Tubular's suggestion that various software packages might have better performance, I reckon the pro-quality D/A conversion and sample rate conversion in the Alesis will do me just fine.........

That's my torrent up at the audio torrents forum, if anyone fancies a listen at some vintage Van der Graaf ...

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

Oh, crap.

Uploaded what I thought were 16 and 24-bit versions of my AC/DC, and it didn't occur to me to look at the file sizes generated by TLH in the 16-bit, and by FLAC frontend in the 24-bit - and, as someone pointed out just now, they're the same!

Need to check, but looks like either Audacity or FLAC fronted have, whether of their own volition, or by my error, downsampled the 24-bit back to 16-bit....

Darn.

Yeah I just checked the Van Der Graaf 10-24-77 download and it is 16 bit / 96 kHz. FLAC Frontend won't dither/truncate or downsample, so it must be Audacity. You must be exporting in 16 bit.
