How to play SACD ISOs in Resonic

I've been asked how to play SACD ISOs (Super Audio CD images) with Resonic.

You can't. It doesn't play or read .iso files (at the time of writing, 0.9.4) and I don't see the need for this anytime soon, but you can easily convert SACDs to stereo or multi-channel DSD files, either in Sony DSF (.dsf) or Philips DSDIFF (.dff) format. Both formats are playable in Resonic.

All you need is a tool called sacd_extract, which also comes packaged with a GUI here: https://www.sonore.us/iso2dsd.html

If you prefer the command-line you can do something like:

sacd_extract --2ch-tracks --output-dsf -i "your input sacd.iso"
for stereo .dsf output

sacd_extract --mch-tracks --output-dsf -i "your input sacd.iso"
for multi-channel .dsf output

Use --output-dsdiff to create .dff files.

Or use the GUI ;)

After a while you'll end up with a new folder that contains a bunch of files. Quite neat.

Hey there!

You mean mono DSD?

Please gimme some more details to reproduce this, not sure what you're referring to right now.

I mean .wav and .mp3 mono files. Sorry if my question is in the wrong topic.

Sorry, these are the settings of my fireware audio interface. But I haven't figured out how to fix it yet.
