shntool fix help needed

I'm going to get this down if it kills me.

So I found a fladc file with an SBE. I tried running shntool fix. (shntool fix *.flac) and it gave me this error:
shntool [fix]: error: need two or more files to process

Wha?

However I found I could fix it by doing the following:

decoded to wav
checked wav for SBE, tested postive
re-encoded to flac, tested for SBE, tested negative
decoded new flad to wav, tested for SBE, tested negative
kept my new flac for archiving and tossed the rest

Does that work too?

Okay, so I just tried to do the fix on the wav from the bad flac and got the same message.

Why does it need two or more files to process? I don't understnad.

Okay got it. It won't work on just one file. I will post my experiments and their findings later. The differnet methods resulted in different size files.

Yeah the problem is that shntool fix wants to move bits from one file to another to fill a sector, so it doesn't know what to do with one file. You probably want to use shntool's pad command to fix the file (if it is the last file in the group.)

All you've done via this process is padded the end of the file with silence. This is not a proper SBE fix unless the track is the last track in a musical set.

Re: shntool fix help needed

Yes, use -pad if it's only one file in the set that needs to be fixed AND that file is at the end of a set ONLY. If it's in the middle, then you need to run -fix on all the files starting from the file with the SBE to a file where padded silence at the end is OK (IE a set fadeout, the end of the disc, etc).

Since fix is trying to shuffle samples from one file to another, it does not know what to with only a single file. As uhclem said, just padding that one file will cause it to no longer have an SBE, but will also ruin the file as well.

Make sense?

Re: shntool fix help needed

I would love to see a len check for your show if you'd be so kind, feralicious.

...meaning the unfixed version.

and what the heck, a len check of your fixed version too, please.

Hmmm...I wonder if this is some kind of come on. I hear the common pickup lines in Toronto are a little different than the usual "can i buy you a drink sometime" stuff we use stateside.

I think in Toronto they usually say something along the lines of "Hello, I'm from the Centre of the Universe - take off your clothes."

or maybe "nice touque, eh. it's freakin' cold as sh*t out here, how about warming up at the local pub?"

we get to the clothes bit later.

and we only use the centre of the universe line when we're out of town. and only when we're in Canada, eh.

anyhow, I was just looking for a len check, nothing frisky!
