What I'd like to hear is if ogg compares to mpc at around 170, 180 VBR ...I know it's better than anything at lower bitrates, but how does it compete against mpc above 160kbps VBR?
Originally posted by Garf I think RC2 actually already includes such a mode by default, but I don't know if it's enabled in the actual encoder.True, but the encoder (OggEnc v0. says: "... the encoder is only tuned for rates of 44.1 and 48 kHz and while other rates will be accepted quality will be significantly degraded."When I tested it, 48kbps 32kHz stereo sounded pretty good, keeping in mind it was 48kbps. 48kbps 32kHz mono should be no problem.I have encoded the same wav file (32KHz, mono) through dbpoweramp and was successfull.Doesn't the standard RC2 encoder have it?dbpoweramp uses rc2, so the answer is yes.I change the question in other way:]i can encode at any KHz/Chans/Bits for sure, but i really want know which of them are more tuned... thanks

Originally posted by elfin It seems to me, that in 350 kbps mode there is the 19 kHz lowpass. Must it be at that high bitrate?
Originally posted by Garf There is no lowpass. It's just that the ATH+masking decides that most of those sounds aren't audible. That's what psychoacoustic compression is all about...-- GCP
Originally posted by elfin Isn't the ATH+masking just a little too aggressive at such a high bitrate?
Originally posted by Garf Unless you come up with a clip that you can positively ABX because of a lack of HF, the answer is no.-- GCP
Originally posted by elfin [B9Though I have a pair of elven ears, a HQ amp and my loudspeakers weighing 90 kg, I can't ABX at that bitrate.
Originally posted by ChristianHJW Mine weigh 65 kg each, tube/MOSFET amp, but i simply refuse to torture them with compressed music, even 24/96 is not good enough for my precious music IMHO ...Compression, whatsoever kind, is good for my soundtracks in my DivX movies, but thats it ....
Originally posted by Benjamin Lebsanft to get back to the topic as it is always me, Garf could you compile an oggenc.exe with the rc 2.9 release ??
Originally posted by Garf That 'RC2.9' is a special version I did for the BBC.It takes in 32kHz 16bit stereo and puts out 48kbps files, suitable for streaming over a modem.You really want _that_ ?-- GCP
