    Default How to convert 24/96 to 16/44 for CD Burning?

    I am not equipped to enjoy the benefits of hi-rez. My main mode is through CD (CDR).

    Can anyone recommend a freeware/software program to convert 24/96 files to CD-burnable files? I'm getting confusing info from the web. I grabbed Foobar but I haven't figured out how to use it. I've always used freeware for my audio. Currently using CDBurnerXP for making discs.

    This is only for those occasions when 24/96 files are my only option.

    You may also use Foobar 2000. It is also very good to play the music from PC. Two at once

    Some lessons from friends & you may convert with Foobar everything to anything. Flac, shn, wave & any others strange files.

    Software specific here, but what's the best way to do the same task with Audacity, assuming that that is even feasible?

    Edit: Never mind.
    It was a simple matter of selecting the sample rate in Preferences, then using the pulldown menu to set the frequency.
    I have neither the speakers to hear the difference, nor the bat-like hearing to detect any difference, but I couldn't hear any difference between 192/24 and DSD audio converted to 16/44.1.
    Audacity really offers quite a lot of bang for the buck.

    I signed Atom Herat Mother (right mouse), then choose convert & the option of converting.

    Thanks for the replies, I thought I was going to make a fool of myself. I still can...

    I will download and try xmedia recode later today. Looks useful for many things.

    In Audacity, I see now how to put a 96000 audio file to 44100. Then export.
    That's cool, didn't know Audacity could do that. Suppose this means I'd have to do every file manually though.

    In Foobar2000, I still haven't figured out how to use. I see the attached image, but mine looks different.
    Add File > Right click > Convert> doesn't work for me yet. I'll keep trying it.

    If you download BurnAware Free... https://www.burnaware.com/

    Whatever you drag and drop into the GUI when burning an audio CD will auto convert and burn properly. Easy!
