       wavpack - encode wav files to wavpack

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

       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.

	   Adobe Audition (CoolEdit) mode for 32-bit floats

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

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

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

	   maximum hybrid compression (hurts lossy quality & decode speed)

	   specify (comma separated) channel order if not Microsoft standard (which is
	   indicate that channels are not assigned to specific speakers, or terminate list with
	   "..."  to indicate that any channels beyond those specified are unassigned

	   delete source file if successful (use with caution!)

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

	   high quality (better compression ratio, but slower encode and decode than default

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

	   display extended help

	   ignore length in wav header (no pipe output allowed)

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

	   compute & store MD5 signature of raw audio data

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

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

	   don't recode passed tags from local encoding to UTF-8, assume they are in UTF-8

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

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

	   encode unassigned channels into stereo pairs

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

	   quiet (keep console output to a minimum)

	   generate a new RIFF WAV header (any extra RIFF info in original file will be

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

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

	   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)

	   copy input file's time stamp to output file(s)

	   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)"

	   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!)

	   yes to all warnings (use with caution!)

       wvunpack(1), wvgain(1)
