I thought the "test" part of the source was like a unit test for the 
whole FLAC package and not exactly what I was looking for. I'm more 
interrested in if diffent bit in flac files will still have the right 
amplitude when I play my files in my implementationn, and if I'm mapping 
multichannel files to the right speakers is done corrently in my 

But what you're saying is that the test suite will generate such files 
for me, that's great

Best regards
