I still swear by  CDWAVE>FLAC FRONTEND (SB box not checked)>SHNTOOL.  Works everytime.

you can skip the flac frontend step with the current versions of cdwav...you can choose to output directly as flac files and cdwav takes care of sbe's for you...then to double check, run shntool to confirm, but this is how i do it and have had zero problems with it.

For some reason my compression's not as good going to flac through cdwav.  Don't know why.   :-\

I bet CDWave uses a FLAC default of 5 or something, whereas most folks compress using 6-8 (I use 8).

FWIW, CD Wave gives you a drop down box where you can pick which level of compression you want to use.  I use 5 myself.

ok, I thought this was one subject where I knew a little something, now I'm confused. Does cdwav automatically convert to flac??

I have been using SF to fades/dither/resample, then open cdwav to track, put in the dummy track at the end as otehrs mentioned & then save as wave files. I then open up front end, paste in the tracked wave files & encode that way.

am I doing something wrong or missing a step???

nope,not automatic.when you click save..youll see a drop down menu on the right side of the screen..there you can choose flac as an output format.

thanks Teddy. I don't think I ever noticed that. I may still do it my way though since I usually burn an audio copy & listen thru before I convert to flac & seed anyway. Buut that is handy to know. Thanks.
