Is it bad to convert 32 bit to [24 bit] flac? 2020-06-04 03:55:36 I've ran into two problems today for the first time in a row. I think it's because I've recently installed the SoX resampler component into foobar, because I read that it was better.First of all I was trying to rip an SACD I have to .flac. I have it as an .iso image, and got the proper component to read it in foobar, thinking that I would just convert it to 24-88 .flac and be done with it. Turns out for the first time, I got a "Trancode warning [sic]", telling me that it will not be lossless. I never knew that DSD and 32 bit PCM were not supported by .flac. I mention the 32 bit PCM because right after that I put the .iso aside and tried converting these different WavPack files (32 bit) to 24/96 .flac for better storage. This one perplexed me because I've done this before and never got a transcode warning. It must have been because of the SoX resampler component. Learn something new every day, I guess.So my main concern is this: Would converting DSD or 32 bit audio to 24 bit 96000 hz FLAC be any better or worse than if I were converting from a format that 'fits' the FLAC codec?Let's say for example I had the exact same album, only ripped to 24/192 WAV. Would the resulting 24/96 .flac files be any different than if I were to convert from 32/384000 WavPack to 24/96 FLAC? Same exact album, ripped differently.
