So i need to convert my mp3 files to a lossless format, but Monkey's Audio doesn't detect mp3 files at all.



Why?

How are you converting the original WAV to FLAC?  I wouldn't expect this process to reduce volume.

As above, why flac rather than mp3 for this application? Flac is lossless so your effectively size limited by the length of each recording you're encoding whereas with mp3 you could sacrifice bitrate to bring your file sizes in as required. You prefer flac but if you need to compress to get file sizes down then lossy compression becomes your only option - or split files.

You could still convert the resultant mp3 to flac as before but why bother, you're not gaining anything?
Read the original post more closely. mp3 is not an option.

OP should look into lossywav.

AES mafia again?

Just adding another nod of thanks for this place of sanity. Dropped out of a few facebook groups because of the audiophoolery going on.

Thanks Case - I think you've hit the nail right on the head!

Excellent. Thank you very much.

I was responding to @Atmasphere , who uploaded their FLAC, but the post is somehow in the deleted posts bin, along with the attachment.
Sounds like a conspiracy. ::)
