Less strain on system resources when burning WAV than MP3, thus safer (i.e., less probablilty of failure). Another reason is so you can easier edit out the 2 seconds added by some ripping programs to fix out of sync problems. You may also want to edit the WAV files for other reasons (e.g., fix click and pops from bad ripping equipment).why convert MP3->WAV anyway?
That's still considered converting MP3 to WAV.when i remove the two seconds or fix clicks i just open all mp3s w/ Wavelab and save them as wave after editing, so no need for converting them first either...
I know that the warning is only on the Dreamcast forum, but perhaps you should still keep that to yourself.Quote: from Stregano on 9:20 am on Dec. 14, 2001
i have used extremely cheap cd's for burning multi-session games like for dc (sorry for dc reference, but its a good example) and have it burn at 8x which is the fastest my burner can go, and have no problems with it at all.
sure the file is converted, but the editing program does that by itself, so there is no need for an extra decoding program or to waste that extra time just for decoding...Besides, when you open MP3s with Wavelab (or any audio editor) for editing, did you know that the application converts them to WAVs or something uncompressed into your Temp folder (or perhaps in RAM or swap file) before you can do any edits?
