Also, looking at how the sizes of both the fixed and recoding using the --sector align option are identical, feralicious' comment that that decoding SBE tracks to wav and then re-encoding them to flac using align on sector boundaries isn't the correct way to fix files is incorrect
Okay, no fair sneaking in posts while I'm experimenting. That's as bad as editing your posts since mine looks to be obsolete now.

So then where did I get the idea that this was not an okay way to fix SBEs? Huh? Will somebody pleas find that damn thread???

Hell, maybe this whole post doesn't mean a damn thing and the experiment was useless.


I need to go back to bed.

I'm quite positive that I'm right. I'll be correcting a set in the next day or two so I will do it by decompressing to WAV then using the FLAC frontend sector align to set the record straight.
