[SOLVED] FLAC File Size
Posted: Tue May 19, 2020 11:58 pm
I'm not sure if you consider this a bug, but... I am converting a DSF file to FLAC and the file size almost triples. I would expect it to maybe go in the other direction. Is it because you are using more information in the file? Out of curiosity, I converted it to a WAV with the same results. I also converted it to a DFF and then to a WAV with the same results (really large file). Thanks.

Yes, you will get large files when converting DSF/DFF to flac/wav. It's because of the high sample rate https://imgur.com/ShK9KDC
. You can reduce the sample rate to get smaller file.

Ahhh... Thank you. Most conversion programs aren't this detailed or at least use lower sample rates by default. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
