Well, wavpack is also designed for lossless audio. If the whole .gig is
compressed as such then I'd use a generic format, maybe .xz aka. lzma2.
wavpack only has 'raw-pcm' options which obviously refer to pcm data.
I don't know how .gig works and whether the samples and the
meta-information can be split/joined easily. Probably not worth the
