FLAC MetaData for Soundreef

Anyone with experience delivering files to clients so they can upload to Soundreef? While I fine Soundreef’s technical requirements odd, I believe there’s an explanation for it–that this makes the files absolutely compatible with worldwide platforms.

Question: Soundreef wants a 128kbps MP3 encoding, saved as a .flac file. That’s easy, right? Not exactly…
So, I encode an MP3 as needed, then save as a .flac file. Meta-data in the MP3 is dumped. And, the .flac encoding changes the file’s peaks, so watch those intersample peaks!

So, I can edit the .flac meta-data, but Wavelab can’t save the “changed” file. It can only save a copy under a new filename. Is this a problem, or expected? Also, is the edited file saved as a new file changed in any other way as far as audio content?

Is there a better way to accomplish this?


is it so complicatet to post in the English part of forum? in the german part you wont get an answer.

Very odd. I didn’t see/realize this was the German portal, thanks!!
