6-channel(5.1) wav file to 5.1 mp3 sorround file encoder

I am trying to encode 6- channel wav files to 5.1 mp3 sorround format.The only free encoder which i could get my hands on is Fraunhofer IIS MP# Sorround Command line encoder v1.5 .

To encode the six channel wav file, I type the following command:

$ mp3sEncoder.exe -if 6_channel.wav -of 6_channel.mp3 -br 320000

It gives the following error: Unsupported input sampling rate <96000Hz>
Allowed sampling rate for mono and stereo signals:8000 - 48000Hz
Allowed sampling rate for 5.1 signals: 44100 or 48000 Hz.

Can anyone help me encode the given file to the desired format?

While going through certain audio forums I discovered something which said that one could first convert 6-channel wav file to 6 mono files using a software called "transcode" and then use a mux file to get the 5.1 mp3 sorround. Can someone throw some light on this? What is a mux file? Will converting a 6-channel file to 6 mono wav files affect audio quality?



PS: My knowledge of linux , and computers in general, is very limited. I've some knowledge C though.
