What methods/code are you using to convert the DSD to PCM? Has it got anything to do with the DSD-2-PCM converter?
would you be able to add options for 176400 and 192000 output? And I assume it's 24-bit output too?
Would DSF support be possible?...Support for .DSD file format?...Support for .WSD possible?
Lastly, how about DXD playback.
The configuration page supports any rate between 6KHz and 192KHz. And it output 32-bit floating point.
I'll look into it.
Unless the files are renamed to something other than .wav, then no, they'll always be handled by the standard .wav input.
I'll look at a DXD file anyway, though.
Wouldn't it be like DTS-WAV files and the DTS plugin though? detect header? Or maybe I'm not getting how it works with the sampler and order of detecting and then processing...
Currently, the DTS-WAV input either requires you to rename the files to .dts or .dtswav, or use a DSP.
Since DXD is merely PCM at a high sample rate, it should probably be up to a resampler DSP that only resamples material over a given sample rate.
oops. wrong post
Type the value you want in. I only added presets up to 96KHz. I'll add 176400 and 192000 for the next release.
I have found the dff2wav.exe software to conver dff to pcm but it have created an output file at only 88KHz giving a dff at 2.5MHz
If someone is interested to the dff to wav software----------------------------------------------------------------check all the link inside this webpagehttp://fpga.cool.coocan.jp/wordpress/index.php/2009/01/you will finddff2wav09b.zip
Is there any convertion tool that can convert any .dsf file into WAV or into .dff ?Does anyone have such a FREE tool? (for the moment the commercial tools are too expensive...)Thank you in advance.Best regards,hr_muadib
As for DSF to DFF, that should be pretty simple actually, it looks like just a change of header info...One can even do it manually, I think. Audiogate can do it in a GUI environment, but it's far from free...perhaps some time we will have one of these great little free plugins/programs popping up at HA to do it...like the dbPoweramp DSD plugin...
I thought it was a little more than that, though. As per this white paper (and other explanations upon googling), it uses a more relaxed anti-alisasing filter on top and independent of the higher sampling rate (which gives it a closer DSD-like pulse response as well as and frequency response, and would be a different (not sure to what degree) when comparing it to a "normal" 352.8kHz PCM file).
I have released a component here which can decode .DFF files. Beware, DST encoded files play back at sub-realtime on most systems because the reference DST decoder really sucks. Oh, and it may be buggy on bad DST encoded files, I haven't completely rewritten the crappy decoder.Here is some test material. I don't really know of any other free sources of .DFF files.Updated to 1.1: Now resets the foobar2000 resampler on seek.
- Support for .WSD possible? This is another DSD format supported by Korg's Audiogate and DSD recorders. See the WSD info at bottom of this page. I don't actually have a Korg so I don't know of any way to try out WSD files...maybe it's useless if no one even uses it
If it helps, here's a compilation of all the software (I think it might be based on the audiogate converter?) that is found at http://fpga.cool.coocan.jp/wordpress/. That japanese guy seems to be doing some very interesting stuff with DSD files, including his own SACD player DSD output board.dff2wav: http://fpga.cool.coocan.jp/electrart/dff2wav.exe wsd2wav: http://fpga.cool.coocan.jp/electrart/wsd2wav.exewsd2wav1: http://fpga.cool.coocan.jp/electrart/wsd2wav1.zipwsd2dsf: http://fpga.cool.coocan.jp/electrart/wsd2dsf.exeWSD file format specifications: http://www.acoust.rise.waseda.ac.jp/1bitco...f/020917wsd.pdfIt would be interesting to compare the output files of dff2wav to the DSD2PCM-based converter in foobar. In fact I tried to do this, and, Kode54, how do you convert a DSD file to 24-bit PCM in foobar? I tried the foobar converter and it could only seem to produce a 16-bit output file (sampling rate was whatever I set the DSDIFF decoder to). I wonder how you could control it so you could allow 16, 24 or 32-bit PCM output...
I am also interested in this conversion stuff. I happen to be a linux user and am looking for playback options of dsd files on ubuntu. If it would be helpful to anyone I can give some audio samples in the different formats. I have a Korg MR1000. I can give sample files of anything it can create. I would also be interested in helping with a software or playback hardware project if there are any being worked on right now.
