Thanks for your comment.

Just tried your program tonight--very nice indeed, especially the SoX and Mediainfo integration (this coming from a dbPoweramp user).

One request: Can you change the behavior of the warning message about the number of processes setting? I have a quad core (non-hyperthreading) CPU, but I get the warning if I specify more than 3 processes. Your program doesn't max out my cores using 4 processes.

One question: What criteria did you use to determine the initial settings of the various codecs? I'll do some research over at Hydrogenaudio for the ones I'm not familiar with, but I'm curious how you decided on your initial settings.

Thanks for a great program.
1) I'll turn it to a message in log. I get annoyed by it too.

2) Most of the initial values are defaults I got from backend's help. But bitrates and other quality related values are mostly random. If you find an error or have any suggestions, please feel free to contribute anytime.

I downsampled some FLAC files from 24/96 to 24/48 the other night, and the converted files play at half-speed. Do you think I set something wrong, is this a SoX bug, or is there something in your default command line that caused the speed change? I'll play around with it again when I get home tonight.

I can be more help if you can provide log of that encode.

Don't have the original log, but here's the one from the latest attempt. I noticed the resulting file is 16/48, not 24/48.

Ozok,

Really, any conversion where an downsampling the result is a file with double the time and bit depth is also changed to 16 bits
The conversion(Sox) of this type of file to wav hangs halfway.
And, even if Sox is not used for the conversion files with the bit depth is above 16 the bit depth lowered to 16 bits.

I was able to successfully downsample the files by using dbPoweramp to convert to WAV, using R8Brain to downsample, and re-encoding to FLAC with dbP. foobar2000 (using SoX plugin), also does the conversion successfully, so it seems to be a problem with the TAC version of SoX or the command line being passed to SoX.

I guess another possibility is that TAC is not decoding FLAC to WAV correctly for 24/96 files.

@soneca and @jkauff I've fixed sampling rate problem. TAC was passing wrong commands to backends. Can you please confirm it by using that TAC.exe?

I will look into bit depth problem and hopefully release a new version tonight.

PS. I liked the sound of TAC jkauff

Confirmed.
The sampling rate is fixed and the conversion to wav is working well.

Thanks, I will release an update tonight.

Could you guys send me a 24bit FLAC sample, all my FLAC files are 16bit.

My 24/96 FLAC files converted perfectly to 24/48 FLAC. Thanks for the quick fix!

I can not convert any wav file to other formats, and the log is not clear on this issue.
When the TAC does not finish the task, the log is not saved in text format.
Copied and sent to you.
