SoX Help [moved from General Audio (TOS #6)] 2017-01-02 15:35:21 Hi, so I have some vinyl rips which are 24/192 and 24/96 and I want to get rid of them and preserve an "ok" version if i ever want to play with audio edition. I'm guessing 24 bit but which sample rate? I've been using SoX command line batch processing but honestly I don't even know if I'm using it correctly. First off, I check if they have been normalized before with Audacity or iZotope (do the effect, if the waveform does not amplify then it is Normalized already) and then convert them to play on my mobile device and delete the converted files and preserve the original files, but since they are taking way too much space I want to keep a "Master" for further edit or transcode to other lossy formats. What I'm asking is what parameters should I use in the command line? I've been reading that 24/48 is optimal. If that's the case, what effects should I use? I want to use "--norm" if it's not normalized (since they will be the final masters to me) and "stat -v" to amp max volume without clipping (or at least that's what I understood, correct me if I'm wrong), I also seen the rate effect which I will obviously will use but I'm wondering about bandpass, is 95 enough? I don't know, why the -b option exists then? I want to preserve most good data with no echo or whatever. Oh and I want to use the .bat file and not the foobar pluggin which don't have the options I want to use. So which settings should I use? What sample rate you recommend? Thank you.
