I'm running windows and trying to figure out what files from the following site to download and where to install/place them:Quote from: Wombat on 2018-08-20 15:10:32A while back Mans Rullgard added support to SoX for DSD resampling. It applies the SoX resampling to 1bit DSD directly. https://github.com/mansr/soxA cursory glance at that computeraudiophile thread shows that someone found this link from which the file sox-dsd-win32-MSVC.zip can be downloaded. I downloaded a DSD64 (which I believe is the kind of encoding SACD's use; correct me if I am mistaken) file from here and managed to convert it to FLAC with the included SoX.exe executable included in the ZIP file (extract all of the compressed file first).I used the following batch file in Windows 10 with the executable in question:Code: [Select]for %%a in ("YourInputFolderHere\*.dsf") do sox -V3 -S -D "%%a" -b 16 "YourOutputFolderHere\%%~na.flac" rate -v 44100pauseI had to include the "-D" parameter to stop SoX from dithering; I'm not sure why it was automatically doing this. Maybe it's better? I'm not too sure.Anyway, this is if you want to encode it in standard CDDA quality (16-bit stereo, 44.1kHz). You can change the bit depth and sampling frequency to whatever you want the FLAC output to be.
