[SOLVED] DSD gets converted to PCM when compressing with Wavpack

Post by TimvHerpen » Thu Oct 12, 2017 10:30 am

I'm trying to batch convert a lot of DSF files to Wavpack which supports lossless DSD compression since V5.0.
But somehow the files end up bigger than the original files, even when using the latest wavpack.exe instead of wavpackdll.dll built-in to XR3.
When I specify the options for the decoder (-hxl --import-id3) it doesn't behave like it does in PowerShell.
Image
On the bottom left are the output files of XR3, on the right are the input files and the output files of wavpack.exe using PowerShell(seen on top left)
Image
dBpoweramp also tells me that the sample size/rate of XR3's output files is 32bit/176,4KHz and doubles the original file size which means that it's doing some weird conversions.
Image
Foobar2k confirms my thoughts as it doesn't recognize XR3's output file as DSD.

Please try the latest beta version - viewtopic.php?f=16&t=40
Also, please configure Wavpack Encoder to use wavpackdll.dll.

I was using 1.67 beta and tried both wavpack.exe and wavpackdll.dll, gave the same results

Hi!

I'm really liking XRecode am about to purchase, but I think this issue still persists.
I'm trying to convert my SACD ISO collection to compressed Wavpack. The file size is much larger compared to extracting the DSF with `sacd_ripper` and then using `wavpack.exe` to encode.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

Great I think it is working as expected now. However, it is using the `normal` compression level even when the setting is set to high. I've verified this as `wavpack.exe` when using `normal` compression outputs an equivalent file in comparison to xrecode. Is there some particular setting I'm missing?
