SHN Live Music

You may not know this audio format until one day you get SHN music and can't play it with players. Actually, SHN, also named Shorten, is a compressed but lossless codec that is used for CD-quality audio files (44.1 kHz 16-bit stereo PCM). It was developed by Tony Robinson but since 2007, SNH was not developed anymore. Gradually, it has been replaced by other more popular formats, such as WAV, FLAC, APE, etc. Yet some concert recordings that are encoded with SHN are still being circulated underground. Because most popular players can’t read SHN files, converting SHN to MP3, FLAC, and WAV is the demand of many music lovers.
That’s the whole tutorial of converting SHN files, which can help you solve SHN playback issue. If you still have any question, please don't hesitate to contact us.
