    I have a question consirning audioconverting.
    Does anybody know if it is possible to convert a .WAV 44.1kHz. 16Bits Mono file into a A-law 8 kHz. 16Bits Mono file?
    Normally I convert the WAV's into A-Law 8 Bits, but now I need to convert them to 16 bits files which seems not possible with the programs I use.(Soundforge 4.5, Wavlab 3.0, CoolEdit)
    I'm wondering if the format in this way even exist.
    Help and/or tips are very welcome!!
    Thx.

    A-law is, by definition, audio compressed down to 8 bits, so the format you speak of doesn't exist.

    :c:

    That explains why I couldn't find any audio prog/converter that had that feature.

    Thanks David!!!
