Originally posted by Dibrom Admittedly, I did add quite a few small psymodel tweaks on top of nspsytune with the --alt-presets, but even without these, many improvements are still there. Ironically, in regards to this thread, included within the list of improvements the --alt-presets provide, is much better pre-echo handling on difficult signals, and impulses especially Try encoding fatboy or something similar with --alt-preset insane, vs the gpsycho line, and api should come out sounding much better.
Originally posted by JohnV Dibrom, I'm not talking about -alt-preset vbr modes, I'm talking pure gpsycho-nspsytune head-to-head fair preset comparison. In my opinion gpsycho wins in pre-echo handling. And we can still hear problems even with alt-presets pre-echo tweaks, direcetly related to nspsytune, which are not present with gpsycho.
Well, anyway. Naoki has acknowledged this. I believe, he said that also Robert has said the same this as I.
nspsytune needs better pre-echo and it's possible to implement and pre-echo handling is not clearly better than gpsyco, it's often clearly worse.
Naoki is working on it for nspsytune2.I can do some test, and show some samples to prove my point early next week.
