[flac-dev] FLAC From 32 Bits

Hello -

I am new to the list and new to FLAC and I have an encoding question. I 
am using Goldwave to create a file which is 32 bits, signed, little 
endian. I am doing this to avoid the added step of converting from 
16-bit samples to 32-bit samples. All works well except that encoding a 
sine wave does not output an exact replica of the sine wave -- far from 
it. When I encode a 16-bit sine wave and convert the 16-bit samples to 
32 bits, all works well but the conversion process is time consuming. 
Changing the setting of FLAC__stream_encoder_set_bits_per_sample() 
doesn't solve the problem. I am using the stream encoder because 
eventually the output will go to a stream, but writing to a file for 
testing purposes.

How do I encode to FLAC from native 32-bit files?
