Which sounds better? .lol. Joking, won't go there.... question is this.... I'm using Audacity to record my vinyl collection, outputting 32bit flat .WAV files and 24bit uncompressed FLAC files as I go, problem is that Audacity takes a while to convert these files from its now native .aup capture so today, after doing the same for my CD's I figured that I may as well output to .WAV and use another program (Jetaudio) to then convert the .WAV to 24bit uncompressed .FLAC, there shouldn't be an issue with it whatso ever but I'm now questioning whether Jetaudios conversion is as good as Audacity's conversion considering Audacity is converting from the original .aup whereas Jetaudio would be converting from a converted .WAV and also might not be so good at it.
So the baseline question really is is a good program better at converting audio files than another? Can a program badly convert files like .WAV or .FLAC considering the at times overly analytical view that they are both exactly the same regardless...?
Think I'm going to end up using Audacity for both again, is just annoying as you can't do anything while it converts.
