There seem to be numerous inconsistencies concerning sample rate and
format conversions both for import and export of uncompressed (WAV) files.
I include an OO spreadsheet detailing and categorizing the results (md5
sum is BD2BAB3F0013DDD4D982173B20044138), so I need not delve into
Among the more vexing results is the fact that md5 sums of files
generated under similar conditions and with identical parameters are
rarely identical. This suggests that transformations not transparent to
the user take place during the process either of preparing or
im-/exporting audio files. Likewise, there is no way of knowing exactly
what transformations are actively shaping a file to be exported, or
imported, prior to the action. An extra pop-up window summarizing source
and target sample rates and formats with the option to either change or
call off the pending action seems overdue.
