I pretty sure I’ve used dbpoweramp to convert m4a lossless to wav.

ron: The only problem I see with M4A lossless audio is the conversion from that format to WAV for CD burning.A lot of people use Traders Little Helper, and TLH doesn’t support M4A files.In fact, I have no idea what to use to convert an M4A file to WAV.Anyone have any advice?

Format factory may accomplish this. I’m out of town or I’d check my PC

You can use iTunes for this.
Change your iTunes Import Settings to WAV Encoder, import the folder with the lossless m4a files, select those files in iTunes, right click and select Create WAV Version.
I did this with the Sao Paulo show that georgethree33 shared, and the wav files look lossless in the EAC.

I use a freeware program called SUPER; I have yet to run into any format it cannot convert from.

George, your lossless m4a files work just as fine as any other lossless formats for me; the shows sound great

I have Seattle 1982 on CD somewhere. If I were to put it Dropbox for sharing, how would recommend I do it? Convert to wavs flacs or m4as?

I would convert to flac & if someone wants to convert it to m4a for their own pleasure, let them do it. Don’t mean to rain in anyone’s parade, it’s just that flac & wav have been the universal formats for audio shows that have been traded/shared here. More members can enjoy the shows in these formats. There are many media players out there that will play these formats. If you don’t have lineage information, be sure to say so.


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Also looking for a low-gen version of 1979.09.10 – Osaka, JPN if anyone has it.

I have a crappy 128 mp3 version (with no lineage of course) that happens to sound clearer than my “Celebration of Big Rock” FLAC, even though I suspect the 128 to be at least a second gen based on the hiss I hear.

The “Celebration” cd sounds almost too loud and sped up; anyone else with this recording encounter this?

Yes every one I’ve heard of this show 9/10/1979 is super fast. “Celebration of Big Rock” being the most common.

I have a remaster of this show that actually fixes the speed/pitch problem. I can send you FLAC.

I’m using Xact for Mac to convert my CD to flac. It is taking forever.. After 5 min it’s at 3% on the first song and converting to an .aiff file? Does this seem correct?
Thanks. Can’t say I’ve ever done this before…

You’re using XACT to rip a cd?

Another way you can set your iTunes import settings for aif. Then rip into iTunes like normal.
Switch setting back after you’re done.

Well, yeah, I tried anyway. I’ve never ripped a cd into anything but mp3s, and I’ve used XACT to go from wavs and flacs to mp3s, so I figured it might work to rip a cd into flacs. It seemed like it wanted to, but got stuck. Most of my meager collection is from the snail mail days, so I have CDs instead of computer files. Trading via dropbox is way easier, I just need to figure out the best way to rip my CDs to an acceptable trading format.

Anyway, I’ll use iTunes tonight like thismusicsux recommended.
