This seems unlikely / difficult to understand.
Above command does not "play" anything, so I assume you used 
something else to test the resulting file. What was it?

And a sample will probably be needed, or you use 
samples.ffmpeg.org/multichannel/6_Channel_ID.flac to make sure 
we are talking about the same input file.
