I need to convert a flac file to a wav file without changing sample rate and bit depth. As far as I know changing these properties may distort the audio, so how do i specify them not to be changed?
Also, is there any way to prevent metadata to be written to the output file?
Edit: Apparently this is an XY Problem, I'm sorry, I'm new here. My problem is that I don't want to install flac on my OS X, because I'm trying to sandbox everything I use, so I need a single executable file, such as ffmpeg. I'll try @slhck's suggestion and check whether sample rate and bit depth change.
Edit: ffmpeg only preserves sample rate. Bit depth needs to be set manually.
