Software to convert 24/96 wav to aif?


Recommended Posts

... converts the 24/96 wav files to aiff but drops the 8 bits (24 bits -> 16 bits), while doing the conversion. I use XLD.


Macbook pro 15\" 2.53ghz core 2 duo with Amarra, 1 TB storage, 6 GB memory -> USB locus-design nucleus cable -> EA overdrive DAC -> -> modded parasound JC1 monoblocks -> cadence ARCA loudspeakers + REL studio III

My fave by a mile - all sorts of goodies including a good label editor - but only for PC - I use on a PC then move to my Mac.


Trying to make sense of all the bits...MacMini/Amarra -> WavIO USB to I2S -> DDDAC 1794 NOS DAC -> Active XO ->Bass Amp Avondale NCC200s, Mid/Treble Amp Sugden Masterclass -> My Own Speakers

I first make sure all metadata is correct. Neither WAV nor AIFF is a good format for this...so:

1) Convert WAV to FLAC (DBPowerAmp)

2) Use MP3TAG to get all FLAC tags correct, album art embedded, etc (MP3TAG is a very simple program that uses Amazon, etc to find tags and album art).

3) Convert FLAC to AIFF (DBPoweramp)

4) Load onto Mac


And it's Batch Converter is great too.
