edit DTS and DTS X

good evening. is it possible to edit DTS and DTS-HD with the Audacity ? if so how can you export in the same format?

As far as I’m aware, Audacity does not support DTS.

I have the FFmpeg import/export library installed and I was able to open a 6-channel DTS file from a ripped DVD. It shows-up as “DCA”. But when I tried to export as DTS I got an error.

I don’t see anything for DTS-X or DTS-HD and I don’t have a file to try, but DTS-HD is supposed to be “compatible” with regular DTS so I assume you can open the lossy part of the file.

…When I opened the file the progress bar went from 0 to 100% in a couple of seconds and then it appeared to freeze-up but the file eventually opened.

I didn’t have any DTS files to test, but I found some demo files which open correctly in Audacity on Linux. So yes you’re correct, Audacity supports importing DTS.

In my case the audio format was:

Format                                   : DTS
Format/Info                              : Digital Theater Systems
Codec ID                                 : A_DTS
Bit rate mode                            : Constant
Bit rate                                 : 1 510 kb/s
Channel(s)                               : 6 channels
Channel positions                        : Front: L C R, Side: L R, LFE
Sampling rate                            : 48.0 kHz
Frame rate                               : 93.750 FPS (512 SPF)
Bit depth                                : 24 bits

Audacity doesn’t support Exporting multi-channel DTS, so probably the best that can be done is to export as multi-channel WAV or multi-channel FLAC and then use an external DTS encoder if DTS is required.

yes, the “DTS” file can be imported into “Audacity”

but it can’t be exported right?

I’ve not tried it myself, but this post says no: Using 'Custom' setting to Export in 6 Channels... - #12 by 009

Thank you very much!!
