It seems like it might just be a bad file. Where did you get it from?

Where did you get it from?See my linkI also did a .wav -> .flac conversion that played fine.Nine Inch Nails - The Slip - Wave 96-24 High Res album:Duration : 3:58.681 (22913373 samples)Sample Rate : 96000 HzChannels : 2Bits Per Sample : 24Bitrate : 1928 kbpsCodec : FLACEncoding : losslessTool : reference libFLAC 1.2.1 20070917So maybe there is something wrong with those files.Could someone else test http://www.cardas.com/music/dobler/ and see if they can get the .flac to work?
Yeah I'm just downlading a track now, but it might take a while on my slowish connection..Anyway, while I'm waiting can you describe wat the distortion sounds like.
Now that my download finished it is clear that it is exactly the same issue as in the thread I linked. I decoded with flac.exe the first file and re-encoded it with default settings. File size was 36 % smaller since it no longer contained garbage.
OK I read those links but I'm still lost. The files still don't play in the latest versions of foobar or winamp. Will play in VLC player.How would I implement the fix so they play in foobar/winamp?
the first batch of WAV / FLAC files for this album contained 3 or 4 tracks which had errors (sourced from 16bit masters), i remember someone from the NIN crew posting on the thread here on HA. it was fixed a few days later. possibly related?
I have FLAC 1.2.1.exe in foobar2000 and I converted it to .wav and back to .flac. It still seems distorted.Is there a better way to invoke the flac CL process?
Anyway I just bit the bullet and did it straight from a command prompt.>flac -d Smoove_Funk_Thang_FLAC_96KHz_24bit.flac>ren Smoove_Funk_Thang_FLAC_96KHz_24bit.flac tmp.flac>flac Smoove_Funk_Thang_FLAC_96KHz_24bit.flacAfter this you end up with three files. The original corrupt flac renamed to tmp.flac, the new fixed flac which now has the same name as the original and finally the wave file. If all went well then just delete tmp.flac and the wav files and you're done.If I was doing more than one though then I'd either write a batch file or find some other front-end to do it.
Off topic: All files are bandlimited to 22kHz except A_Brother's_Love_(inst)_FLAC_96KHz_24bit.flac is limited to 24kHz. What's the point of using 96kHz samplingrate? Is this a mastering error?
