    15.2 for MAC: "Error writing audio data to Stdin Pipe [EncodeBlock]" -- what to do?

    Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 5.42.31 PM.jpg


    I'm trying to create a separate library, with lossy files, exclusively for mobile use (an iPhone 6 running the latest OS), and after a quick research, I finally chose to go with VBR AAC, the highest quality.

    So what I did was copy my whole PCM library to a new folder, and tell dbpoweramp to batch-convert all my files (all ALAC, mostly 44kHz/16bit but some hi-res as well) to Quality 5 VBR LC AAC. However, after the conversion was finished, I got the error messages on the attached print screen...

    Don't know if I did something wrong or stupid... any idea?

    Please confirm, all 44.1kHz, 16-bit ALAC files convert with no errors, but the 96kHz, 24-bit ALAC files give the error?

    If yes, I'm guessing, but you may have to downsample the 96kHz, 24-bit ALAC files, to 48kHz, before converting to AAC.

    See here:

    ... by the way, there's no need to copy your original library to a new folder. You just need to set a new output location, when converting and your original library remains, untouched.
