Hoping there's a simple tool to join 2 wav files that are 6ch, 24/96 for gapless playback. Thanks for any sage advice.

sox is not "simple", but should work.

flac is not wav, so sox will probably require libflac for you to use flac support. also, your command line is probably wrong. see http://sox.sourceforge.net/sox.html for the man page, which is valuable reading. maybe read especially about the "--combine" option. you downloaded the precompiled one, right? I mean, that one comes with flac support, according to the README.osx file. you can find it as "sox-14.4.0-macosx.zip" in this directory: http://sourceforge.net/projects/sox/files/sox/14.4.0/

in short, try:
sox --combine concatenate 01Shine\ On.flac 02Welcome.flac 03both.flac
OR:
sox --combine merge 01Shine\ On.flac 02Welcome.flac 03both.flac

yes, I added the '\', and yes, it is important.

Thank you...pretty obvious I'm a newbie to command line moves. Kind of hitting the wall regarding why I still have my user name at the end of my command line, so I'll be looking into that. Assuming I'm ok by cd'ing to my sox directory, then running the command with files also inside that directory.

Thanks, definitely scoured/scouring the sourceforge.net page + definitely DL'd the version you mention (14.4.0). Also assuming the osx version doesn't care that I'm running Tiger on a PPC since it's a command line tool.

I've converted the flacs to wav and output as wav, but no go:

tractor:/Applications/sox tractor$ sox --combine concatenate 01ShineOn.wav 02Welcome.wav 03both.wav
-bash: sox: command not found
tractor:/Applications/sox tractor$ ./sox --combine concatenate 01ShineOn.wav 02Welcome.wav 03both.wav
-bash: ./sox: cannot execute binary file
