Read SACD

Would it be possible to read the SACD-Layer with LibreDrive?

It is 100% possible technically. There is no LibreDrive support for it yet.
Just to confirm - we are talking about reading - something that reads the disc and saves the data to ISO image.

There are a few early SACD releases without encryption, readable by old Toshiba DVD-ROM drives - maybe this could be useful for a possible LibreDrive implementation.


On a somewhat similar note - how about a DVD-Audio ripping ability (not necessarily decryption) for MakeMKV?

In this case MakeMKV (V=Video) must be changed to MakeMKA (A=Audio) which is a other type of container :)
Good Luck :)

That would be amazing. There is a software available which converts SACD ISO images to DSD (https://www.sonore.us/iso2dsd.html). Can you give an estimation if and when such a feature would be available?

DVD-Audio discs are well covered: https://www.videohelp.com/software/DVD-Audio-Explorer.

It's old software but it works.

I used it years ago to obtain WAV files of the individual channels of a 5.1 DVD-A which I then muxed into DTS 96/24 file and subsequently converted it to a FLAC which I can play back through my Squeezebox in full 5.1 surround (DTS 96/24).

So I'm not the only one who thought of this... :-)

It would indeed be awesome.

Most components (incl. their open sources) are already there like:

Ripper incl. DST decoder
Audio format for Matroska storage


Maybe having the SACD ripping ability inside MakeMK, might be one step too astray. :?
Putting it into MakeMKA instead, alongside CD-DA, DVD-Audio & Blu-ray Audio ripping could validate a sister application. :wink:
