a few notes on the *nix port (usage debian sid)* segfaults when overwriting* doesn't exit gracefully* still has win32 header* i'd like to see a library + frontend duo (i.e. frontend does encode/decode)--> library allows for ease of plugins/etc.GREAT WORK ROBUX4! Thanx for your efforts! *cough*monkeysaudio*cough* later
WAVPACK Hybrid Lossless Wavefile Compressor Win32 Version 4.0b2 5-6-04 Copyright (c) 1998 - 2004 Conifer Software. All Rights Reserved.
Hello,Here it is a little summary of WavPack 4.0b2 using hb256. According to what den reported earlier, hb256 (around 256 Kb, high compression) is not generally transparent (at least for his ears). As a curiosity, I was working again now at some abandoned branch of OFS - OFSX (the OFS compressed files can be downloaded from http://losslessaudiocompression.com/audiotest).The interesting fact is that the experimental files are *decodable* with any currently available OFS decoder.
The single file image and separate tracks issue is more of a personal preference rather than one way being 'better' than the other.
Single file ripping is less convenient for things like tagging since you can't really get track # and track title tags,
single file is cleaner, but has the issue of being able to index into that file to any track position.
waiting:270 Kb WV hb256 - ABX 8/10256 Kb OFSX b256 - ABX 10/10In 11.1 - 16.2 some of the edges to the noise are not quite the same. The slight difference I could hear around the vocals in hb256 Wavpack are not present here. They disappear with hb256x6 also if you read above.
