    Upsampling on linux

    Put the following line in your convert.conf file and you wil have realtime upsampling from 16@44.1khz to 24@96khz for your transporter.

    Code:
    flc flc * *
    [sox]  -v0.995 -–buffer 32768  -t flac -r44100 -2 -c2 $FILE$ -t flac -C0 -3 -c2 -r96000 - polyphase -cutoff 1.0
    Change 96000 to 48000 if you have a squeezebox instead.

    This was not my own invention but I tested it and it works fine :-)

    That may be so, but why would you bother?

    Moving from 44.1 to 88.2 is just doubling the data with no benefit at all. Moving from 44.1 to 48, from everything I've heard, is bad. it's like zooming into photo beyond 100%, you cannot create detail that isn't there in the first place, no matter what CSI has taught you.

    In a box: 1x Radio, 1x (Beta) Controller, 1x Receiver, 1x SB2 wired (silver), 1x SB (black), 1x SliMP3 (with rear shield)

    If you have any others, let me know, I'm interested!!

    It was not my intention to start a discussion about upsampling, some people like it, others don't. Just offering a way to try it for free ;-)
