How to convert 32bit FLAC

To convert from/to 32-bit FLAC file with high accuracy:

  1. Run AuI ConverteR 48x44


     
  2. Open audio file (32 bit FLAC or other) *
  3. Select:
    - target file format,
    - sample rate,
    - bit depth (up to 32bit for Free Lossless Audio Codec)*
  4. Select target directory in "Directory of output files" field of the main window of the software.
  5. Push Start button and wait of conversion end.

 

* 32-bit resolution support depends on configuration. Free version has limitations: 2-second silence in the middle of the output track.

** All prices on this page are in U.S. dollars without V.A.T. and other applicable taxes and fees. The prices are recommended. Information on this page is not a public offer.

WARNING: DVD-audio/video, Blu-Ray, DVD/BluRay/CD ISO are NOT supported.
For Modula-R version, SACD ISO, DSF, DFF are supported in proper configurations.
For ISO tracks, DSF, DFF longer than 3 minutes, FREE edition mutes 2-second silence in the output middle and has other restrictions. In batch conversion FREE version mutes 2 seconds in the output middle for second and the subsequent files.
Free version has processing sound quality identical commercial editions.

Pricing

 

AuI ConverteR has several price/functionality options that allow saving your budget for the required functionality. You can expand Modula-R abilities later by purchasing new modules. Unlimited-time license, major updates (... 10.x > 11.x > 12.x > ... versions) are paid.

WARNING: Modula-R modules (parts of AuI ConverteR’s functionality) are NOT compatible with Free version.
ADD-ON modules work with certain CORE modules only (see details).
The module is license key received in order email. To activate module functionality, enter its key in Modula-R executable.
 
All "Modula-R" modules together have "PROduce-RD"'s abilities.
Full-featured "PROduce-RD" version is like a discount on price of full module kit of "Modula-R" version.

 
To expand functionality, module(s) (compatible with purchased major version number) may be ordered separately.
Modula-R license cannot be replaced with PROduce-RD.

Conversion sound quality

Main priority of AuI ConverteR is sound quality.

Conversion to/from lossless PCM formats (Free Lossless Aaudio Codec, WAV, AIFF, ALAC, and others) without resampling and bit depth altering is just repacking. It doesn't change the sound quality.

But, some kinds of conversions have unavoidable losses. The converter program try minimize it as possible.

 

 

Watch and share: WAV and FLAC are binary identical or not?

Resampling cause some losses. Resampling quality depend on implementations. Resamplers' comparison here

But for some cases resampling may be useful.

32 bit 384 kHz FLAC is maximal resolution of Free Lossless Audio Codec.

When digital signal is converted to analog into Digital Analog Converter (DAC), usually, audio data from music file is upsampled to higher sample rate for digital filtration before analog filtration.

Analog filtration restore analog signal from digital signal. We can say, that analog filter connect "stairs" of digital samples via uninterrupted flexible line.

But for analog filter it is very hardly to achieve deep filtration of aliases (distortions) during digital-analog conversion. Therefore before analog filtration, deep digital inline ("on fly") filtration is used.

Non-filtered ultrasound can cause playback audible noise at some software/hardware due intermodulations.

AuI ConverteR 48x44 makes deep filtering of aliases during offline (non-realtime) oversampling with "heaviest" math. Also it have optimized mode (used as default) to remove ultrasound.  Other words it allow to do "half of DAC's work" with very accurate offline algorithms.

Utrasound filtering may be switched off (Settings > General > set Filter mode in "Non-optimized...").

32 bit 384khz DAC allow to use maximal resolution of Free Lossless Audio Codec. However, 24 bit FLAC is more popular for download from stores. There is no univocal answer, need to convert lower bit depth to 32 bit or not.

Read how to convert from/to 24 bit FLAC...

 

Are FLAC files 16-bit?

Yes. FLAC supports 16 bit resolution.

 

What bit rate is FLAC?

FLAC bitrate depends on channel number, bit depth and sampling rate.

As example, uncompressed FLAC bitrate for 1411 kbit/s ≈ 2 channel x 16 bit x 44100 Hz.

If FLAC is compressed, bitrate is 0.847 kbit/s ≈ 1411 kbit/s * 0.6 (approximate compression rate).
 

Is FLAC better than 320 Kbps?

FLAC is lossless audio format. 320 kbps is refer to lossy formats mp3 and AAC.

So, technically, FLAC is better than 320 kbps formats by sound quality.  Other factors are there too.

Lossy formats has lesser size than lossless ones.
