    Converting .iso or dsd files to 24/88.2

    Apologies if this has been asked and answered many times.

    dbpoweramp seems to default to 24/96 conversion of DSD files.
    Is there a way to change the output from 24/96 to 24/88.2
    when converting a DSD file(or for that matter other resolutions)?

    If so can someone please list the steps necessary to do this?
    I have hunted around for an answer to this and so far I have
    been stymied.

    Thank you.

    I will add that I changed the DSD Decoder to 88.2, however the resulting
    flac files are still converting 24/96.

    You changed this option in dBpoweramp Control Center >> Codecs List/Options?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Yes, at Control Center >> Codecs List/Options, at the DSD Decoder
    drop down I changed the rate to 88.2. Did I need to do it elsewhere
    or do something other that I didn't do.

    To be redundant, I converted DSD files after changing the rate.
    The result was 24/96 not the desired 88.2.

    If you go back into that menu option, it still shows 88KHz?

    Yes. It still shows 88.2 under the DSD Decoder (Decoding Down Sampling).

    Just tried with R17 (you can get this test version in the 'Testing section' of this forum), it correctly converted to 88.2KHz

    Thank you once again for being kind enough to reply.
    Okay, I downloaded and installed the Beta. Again, all
    worked well except the files that resulted still show up as
    24/96 as indicated in Windows Explorer (WE) (is there a way other
    than what is indicated in Windows Explorer to check the .flac files
    to make sure what the conversion rate is? Perhaps WE
    is giving a spurious conversion rate? It has been my experience that
    WE has been accurate).

    Also, I want to make sure that I am not doing something incorrectly.
    So, first I am converting .iso files in Sonore ISO2DSD into DSD64 2.8334Mhz
    files. I thought perhaps there was a setting in Sonore that I was somehow
    missing but if there is I cannot find it.

    I apologize for the futility involved here. I find this vexing and I
    am sure you might be annoyed especially if I am missing something
    obvious. Again, I appreciate you patience and attention.

    Best regards,

    L

    Hi,

    I finally figured it out...I think. The resampling rate setting that is applied at the
    time of conversion was set to 96 and not 88.2. So it seems that there are 2 independent
    settings that need to be attended to? I did not realize this and thought that only the
    DSD Decoder section in List/Options needed changing. I have a feeling that this is
    fairly obvious and may be why you didn't mention (or maybe you did and I just missed it).
    In any case, thank you so much for your help. It greatly reduces anxiety to know that
    someone is kind enough to take the time to help alleviate frustration:-).

    With great appreciation,

    L

    You said in your first message you were converting to FLAC, that has no resampling option.
