Align encoding of multiple CD format WAVE files on sector boundaries. This option is only allowed when encoding WAVE files, all of which have a 44.1kHz sample rate and 2 channels. With <span class="argument">--sector-align</span>, the encoder will align the resulting .flac streams so that their lengths are even multiples of a CD sector (1/75th of a second, or 588 samples). It does this by carrying over any partial sector at the end of each WAVE file to the next stream. The last stream will be padded to alignment with zeroes.<br /><br />

This option will have no effect if the files are already aligned (as is the normally the case with WAVE files ripped from a CD). <span class="commandname">flac</span> can only align a set of files given in one invocation of <span class="commandname">flac</span>.<br /><br />
<b>WARNING:</b> The ordering of files is important! If you give a command like '<span class="code">flac --sector-align *.wav</span>' the shell may not expand the wildcard to the order you expect. To be safe you should '<span class="code">echo *.wav</span>' first to confirm the order, or be explicit like '<span class="code">flac --sector-align 8.wav 9.wav 10.wav</span>'.
