Opus - in Desktop Linux distributions it always "just works" and now that foobar2000 works well on Android I don't need AAC anymore.
I think this one should work: https://audiophilesoft.ru/foobar2000/foo_input_la.7z
Foobar can play multiple lossless formats right off the bat like FLAC, WAV, etc. For certain lossless formats like TAK or Monkey's audio you can get the components off the main component directory on foobars website.
Wait is that LA component from 2004?
Thanks guys for your help !
Thanks to Peter's valuable info I could immediately find the 4 culprits. They were 4 "residual files" (.fla.flac - don't ask me where they came from, lol) that I had found and erased on each side before the comparison. I have double-checked, everything is fine now.
In other words, all my lossless files have been PERFECTLY copied and converted to FLAC 1.3.2 in my new hard drive ! Yay !
I can now backup everything and finally get some rest.
Again, thanks to everybody for your great help. I really appreciate.

Unfortunately it was reported earlier this year and wasn't fixed in 17.10. Hopefully it will be moved to main or fixed in another way before 18.04 LTS.

foo_la.dll doesn't work in new version of Foobar.
Foobar cannot play lossless audio.
Foobar says that listeners must create the component with newer Foobar SDK.

I believe it's sample rate.
"The time resolution of a 16 bit, 44.1khz PCM channel is not limited to the 22.7µs time difference between samples. The actual minimum time resolution is equivalent to 1/(2pi * quantization levels * sample rate). For 16/44.1, that is 1/(2pi * 65536 * 44100), which is about 55 picoseconds. To put that in perspective, light travels less than an inch in that time. "
You mean, there is a vocal track and a "karaoke" track, and you want to mix them into a song?
This is definitely the case.
I just remembered something... Audacity doesn't mix 'till you export. If you re-import the file and it's hitting 0dB* it's probably clipped.
Audacity showed me the mixed file was clipping, but using Amplify with a -0,001 db value was enough, so I guess that's why I couldn't here any distortion, and both tracks were probably already normalized. To save the file, I disabled dither (since Audacity uses it by default with FLAC) and put 16-bit as default sample format in Preferences -> Quality.
Would it be more correct to convert the two ADX files to FLAC in advance before working them on Audacity?

bandpass: Thank you for your reply. I sometimes use Ubuntu but mostly Void and OpenMandriva when I listen to music and I haven't checked them yet. I didn't know that Ubuntu doesn't include soxr. Strange.
I've not tested this yet but given it has dialogs for artist/title title formatting, it should support not submitting based on tags like the old component.+1
