Splitting high bit-rate files


Recommended Posts

So I've downloaded some records in 24-96 bit-rate single-file ape format and I want to split them and re-encode for FLAC, keeping the high bit-rate. I've read elsewhere that XLD will do this but I could not find anywhere in the XLD preferences that allowed me to specify the bit-rate. Yes, if you haven't realized yet, I'm pretty much of a noob to high-quality digital audio, but I'm trying. And yes, I'm on a Mac. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

XLD will allow you to transcode from APE to XLD, however if I read correctly you also want to split a single file into multiple files - for this you would need a audio editor.

 

I would recommend Audacity as a good (free open source) package for this. You'll need to add the FFmpeg package to import APE iirc.

...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.
