According to the FLAC web site [1]:

"FLAC supports from 4 to 32 bits per sample. Currently the reference
encoder and decoders only support up to 24 bits per sample."

I'm not sure if there exists an encoder/decoder wish *does* support 32 bit.

If you can live with a bitrate of 24 bits, sox will automatically do the
conversion:

sox 96k_32b_file.wav out_file.flac

Apparently this was also discussed already in 2007 on the flac-dev
mailing list [2]

Notice that even soundconverter will most probably change the bitrate to
24 bit I would bet it is using the flac encoder anyway
