I don't understand what you are asking. Can you explain what you mean by a 16 bit file.

Not trivial but can be done using the Java sound API (Google is your friend) .

But why do you need to do this. It won't result in improved sound quality since although you would have 16 bit samples it would still only effectively be 8 bit sample quality.

I could not find with my Friend yet . The reason is i have a audio client that has only process 16 bit files.

A help is really appreciated.

Thank you.

You don't need a Java program then. Why not just use something like Audacity .
