NAME
       wavpack - encode wav files to wavpack

SYNOPSIS
       wavpack [-options] INFILE... [-o OUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION
       wavpack encodes wav files containing uncompressed audio (or raw PCM data) into WavPack
       files using the options provided. The resulting filename will be source-name.wv unless
       overridden with the -o switch. Multiple input files may be specified resulting in multiple
       WavPack files, and in that case -o may be used to specify an alternate target directory.
       Stdin and stdout may be specified with "-". To decode WavPack files back to wav or raw PCM
       use the wvunpack program.

OPTIONS
       -a
	   Adobe Audition (CoolEdit) mode for 32-bit floats

       -bn
	   enable hybrid compression, n = 2.0 to 23.9 bits/sample, or n = 24-9600 kbits/second
	   (kbps)

       --blocksize=n
	   specify block size in samples (max = 131072 and min = 16 with --merge-blocks,
	   otherwise 128)

       -c
	   create correction file (.wvc) for hybrid mode (results in 2-file lossless compression)

       -cc
	   maximum hybrid compression (hurts lossy quality & decode speed)

       --channel-order=list
	   specify (comma separated) channel order if not Microsoft standard (which is
	   FL,FR,FC,LFE,BL,BR,LC,FRC,BC,SL,SR,TC,TFL,TFC,TFR,TBL,TBC,TBR); specify "..."  to
	   indicate that channels are not assigned to specific speakers, or terminate list with
	   "..."  to indicate that any channels beyond those specified are unassigned

       -d
	   delete source file if successful (use with caution!)

       -f
	   fast mode (fast, but some compromise in compression ratio)

       -h
	   high quality (better compression ratio, but slower encode and decode than default
	   mode)

       -hh
	   very high quality (best compression, but slowest and NOT recommended for use on
	   portable playback devices)

       --help
	   display extended help

       -i
	   ignore length in wav header (no pipe output allowed)

       -jn
	   joint-stereo override (0 = left/right, 1 = mid/side)

       -m
	   compute & store MD5 signature of raw audio data

       --merge-blocks
	   merge consecutive blocks with equal redundancy (used with --blocksize option and is
	   useful for files generated by the lossyWAV program or decoded HDCD files)

       -n
	   calculate average and peak quantization noise (hybrid only, reference fullscale sine)

       --no-utf8-convert
	   don't recode passed tags from local encoding to UTF-8, assume they are in UTF-8
	   already

       -o OUTFILE
	   specify output filename (only if single source file) or target directory (must exist)

       --optimize-mono
	   optimization for stereo files that are really mono (result may be incompatible with
	   very old decoders)

       --pair-unassigned-chans
	   encode unassigned channels into stereo pairs

       -p
	   practical float storage (also 32-bit ints, not lossless)

       -q
	   quiet (keep console output to a minimum)

       -r
	   generate a new RIFF WAV header (any extra RIFF info in original file will be
	   discarded)

       --raw-pcm
	   intput data is raw pcm (44,100 Hz, 16-bit, 2-channels)

       --raw-pcm=sr,bits,chans
	   intput data is raw pcm with specified sample-rate, bit-depth, and number of channels
	   (specify 32f for 32-bit floating point data)

       -sn
	   override default hybrid mode noise shaping where n is a float value between -1.0 and
	   1.0; negative values move noise lower in freq, positive values move noise higher in
	   freq, use 0 for no shaping (white noise)

       -t
	   copy input file's time stamp to output file(s)

       --use-dns
	   force use of dynamic noise shaping (hybrid mode only)

       -w "Field=Value"
	   write specified text metadata to APEv2 tag

       -w "Field=@file.ext"
	   write specified text metadata from file to APEv2 tag, normally used for embedded
	   cuesheets and logs (field names "Cuesheet" and "Log")

       --write-binary-tag "Field=@file.ext"
	   write the specified binary metadata file to APEv2 tag, normally used for cover art
	   with the specified field name "Cover Art (Front)"

       -x[n]
	   extra encode processing (optional n = 1 to 6, 1=default), -x1 to -x3 to choose best of
	   predefined filters, -x4 to -x6 to generate custom filters (very slow!)

       -y
	   yes to all warnings (use with caution!)
