Resampling to 44.1 in WAV encoding

Post by BRMatthews » Thu Jun 26, 2008 6:12 pm

Hi - I'm a new Max user, with a question that I haven't solved by looking through forums so far.

I have downloaded some high quality recordings (24/96 flac) from archive.org. I would like to convert it to 16/44.1 WAV format for use with my Audiotron-based home audio system. I've tried to do this using the WAVE (Core Audio) and WAV (Microsoft) encoders, but they both yielded 16/96 WAV files.

Is there a straightforward way to to do this within Max? From some of the postings that I've read, it sounds like Max may have originally done what I wanted, but was changed to preserve original sampling frequency.

Regards,
Bob

Right now Max doesn't perform any resampling, however it is possible to convert bit depths (dither).

You might check out the command-line tool sox for this.

Thank you - that appears to do the trick! Bob
