Psytel AAC questions
First, i'd like to congratulate Ivan for great work he did ( bravo majstore  )

And now, some questions:

I have downloaded the latest version of Psytel AAC ( jan 31. 2002. ) and i normally encode @archive quality. i'd like to know what's the profile thingy?
All AAC's i have are LC profile, are there any better profiles? Thanx
I said no to drugs, but they didn\'t listen.

LC is supposed to be the best at the moment...

Yeah, you've got to give it to Ivan. He really maintains his software.

AACEnc 2.12 has experimental quality controlled VBR mode:

-qvbr N

where N could be in the range from 0 to 100

This is very experimental switch, and there are several issues:

1. It does not support Intensity Stereo, and so it is very hard to compare very low bitrate modes with Ogg with Fake Stereo (intensity stereo will save 15-25% of the bitrate, but with losing phase information)


2. It is still not designed for "audiophile" quality, and quality of 100 will give 140-170 Kbps files

3. It is not optimized, and still experimental (did I say that already?)

Ivan,

Have you been doing other optimizations in general, besides the "experimental quality controlled VBR mode"?

When I read this thread, I decided to download the newest version, v2.12 and compare it to an aac created from a January '02 version of aacenc. Using a ripped wave of Richard Marx's Hazard, I encoded with only the -normal switch, which is what I always use.

Both sounded the same to me but I notice that the newer version produces slightly smaller files. For example,  The Jan '02 edition of aacenc I used produced a file 6,481kb in size, while version 2.12 produces a file 6,147kb in size.

Maybe it is just that particular track. I just did the same thing with "Duel Of The Fates", by John Williams, and it is the same size as the original.:confused:

qhy dont yuo se if the bits are the same by running some CRC32 check on both files and see if the checksum is the same
