Welcome Friends,

This is my little corner of the Web where I keep my bits and pieces of know-how. Some of it I've written myself, some of it I've overheard at the market, and some of it has been told to me by little voices. I hope you find something useful on these pages and pass it on to others, correct me where you think I should be corrected, and comment where you feel you need to - all that we can make Linux even better and more popular.

-i, --infile

The folder to write the WAVE files to. If you omit this, the files will be placed in the input file's directory.
-o, --outdir

The output samplerate. Valid rates are: 88200, 96000, 176400 and 192000. If you omit this, 96KHz will be used.

Why 96 khz? They are not best suited 88,2 khz or 176,4 khz (integer dividers 2,8224 Mhz)?
