Create Dummy (silent) Channels in MCH FLAC Output

Post by gjwAudio »

Hi There

I wish to transcode vintage Quadraphonic 4.0 files (FL, FR, RL, RR) to current 5.1 channel format, and generate dummy or "silent" data for Centre & LFE channels.

The input files are 4.0 FLAC, and desired output is 5.1 FLAC. Will setting the Matricies panel appropriately take care of this task ?

Also, will the non-data channels contribute significantly to the final file size ?

Thanks.

Yes, Matrices is just for that.
First, set your Output Audio Settings like this
