Too bad there isn't any celtic/irish music in there. But that's just me complaining; can't please everybody.
One concern - I don't believe any of those eleven have female vocals (though I might remember some incorrectly.)
Which MP3Pro plugin will be used and with what quality setting?My MP3Pro bitrate measurements were done with CEPv2@30 (55-70kbps).
- Use something else with other sound characteristics like trumpet, (classical/flamenco) guitar, string quartet, harpsichord, bandoneon. (I wouldn't use harpsichord as it's not as common as e.g. guitar or strings IMO and probably a bit too hard to encode @ 64kbps given the problems it causes at high bitrates).
I have a question : is there any low volume, or very quiet, sample ?
One solution (to make "bitrate-moaners" shut up) could be to take a higher quality setting with ogg (e.g. q0.10) so the final average bitrates for the entire suite (including a piano sample) match.
Having hunted through my solo piano collection, the best I can manage is Rachmaninov's Piano Sonata No. 2 in B Flat Minor - 75 HE-AAC, 44 ogg. I have an album containing 2 Franz Schubert Piano Sonatas played by Alfred Brendel where there isn't a single track that manages better than 36kbps in ogg at 'q 0'!!
Would you like 'Tocca in D minor, BWV 565' by J. S. Bach?Pure organs, bitrates: Vorbis 64k, MP3Pro@40 60k, HE-AAC ??k (temporary problems)
You should use MP3Pro quality 40, because at 30 all samples I've tried produce too low bitrate (50-65k).
Sorry, my guess over MP3Pro was wrong. Quality 30, all stereo image options checked, no CRC, High Quality is okay.I have obviously tried too few samples.
QuoteOne concern - I don't believe any of those eleven have female vocals (though I might remember some incorrectly.)True. You suggest something to be replaced? Actually, people didn't upload many samples with female vocals, AFAI remember.
I ran the sample suite on CEP, and the average at quality 40 was 66,1kbps.At quality 30 it was 60,3.
Well, I checked out your irish samples. Bitrates wouldn't work.
If you are interested, I could hunt for some more similar samples, allthough I can only verify ogg bitrates.
