I just downloaded a show and when I converted the Flac to wav with Traders little helper the bit rate on the wavs are 1536kbps. This won't play in any CD player.

Anything I can do to get the correct bit rate?

1536kbps means that wave file is 48kHz sampling frequency with 16bit depth for 2 channel. I think the files are ripped from DVD or so.
You're able to calculate this as 48k x 16 x 2 = 1536k .
If the files are for CD, 44.1k x 16 x 2 = 1411.2kbps will be appeared.

If you want to use these files to play with CD player, you have to convert sampling frequency of these files to 44.1kHz with some kind of wave converter or wave editor. I always use QuickTime for these aim but conversion function is not free and I'm so sorry that I don't know well what is the best choice on windows machine, however, Audacity (free) is one of the good selection I think.

I hope this will will be a little help to you.

Thanks Masahiko,

That sounds like more work than I want to do

here's the post on the torrent
--------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------
Freddie King
Ebbet's Field
Denver, Co
5-27-1974 Late Show
A+ Soundboard

Sample Track in comments below.

My friend dropped off the D/A converter and the Nomad Jukebox today so I
decided to convert some DATs.

I broke this show into 12 tracks. 97 minutes of Freddie.

This is the best unreleased Freddie King that I have come across. I got this
DAT from a freind back in 98>

Master reel>DAT#?>myDAT>HosaA/Dconverter>NomadJB3>CDWave>Flac

Can't imagine some other person didn't run into the same problem as you Bill. Check back on the torrent and see if any comments address the problem. Also try and email the uploader and see if you can get resolution.

Anyone ever try this program before?

I've gotten some 16/48 recordings before and used Audacity to dither down to 44.1, very simple

from what I understand there's also some burning software that auto dithers to 44.1 in the same vein some burning programs auto-convert FLAC>WAV for burning cd audio. That may be why no one else has run across the prob yet (and that less and less people burn to cd)

FWIW I use Belight. it's free and will resample audio.
It's . . . um . . . fairly easy to use.
Besweet is also free but is much more complex.
Both are light weight, and fairly stable.

Not sure if it works on Vista.

http://www.digital-digest.com/dvd/downloads/showsoftware_belight_491.html

To use Belight, DL both Belight, & Besweet. (Un-zip both) & Put Belight in Besweets folder.
to create a shortcut to Belight on your desktop
Right click Belight.exe > click copy.
Then right click the desktop and choose paste shortcut.

forgot to mention (if anyone wants to try this) that you also need to DL the Besweet GUI and add it to that folder.

Yeah, It's a pain, but you only have to do it once.

here's a shot of my Besweet folder.



To covert your show

click "file" > "open" and choose your file or files.

Put a check in the box next to "output sampling rate" , change the sample rate 44100 hz

choose the format, for example wav/PCM 16 bit stereo as shown. (or whatever)

click the "start processing" button.

Belight will quickly convert the file, and put it in the same folder with your show.
