According to the fact that 3.90.3 is the same as 3.90 for abr encodings, I'd like to see the newest lame encoder in the test. After all, lame 3.90 is more than two years old now. I know it was heavily tested; but then, why not considering this public listening test as a first step for a complete checking? Even if 3.94 is beta... (recommanded version of musepack is still alpha...)
quickly ABXed fsol.flacwith preset 128(3.90.3 and 3.94b1)both 14/14 but 3.90.3 is (much) better-lazka
I didn't replace any sample with fatboy because noone suggested what sample to replace. So this test will have no problem cases, except the very evil and very interesting Waiting.
I would have liked fatboy...Why no setting up a poll for which sample to replace?
What about LAME 3.90.3 <-> 3.95? Will that be "only" testing & tuning by those interested in it?
-Gogo 3.12 -b 128 -a
Would you allow that?
I'd like to point that with 3.95, targetting 128kbps I think that -q1 and -q0 can really improve encoding quality.
is it possible to use this setting along with aps?
