I don't get what you are complaining about. We continously improve the software, and each new release has new features. Each time we release something, the very latest development version is already" better" and we try to get that into the *next* release. If you don't ever want to be surprised by a new version that is better than the one you just encoded your entire collection with, then for the love of god, use some dead format, and not Nero AAC, because we're actually improving it!
TO: NERO Project ManagersThe point is that it is not these guys/developers you talk to on these forums are the ones responsible for what you are complaining about. They do their work of development and they do it well AFAIK.
The fact that each major release of Nero contains an uncomplete encoder
The funniest is that you're apparently aware about these bugs, but strictly don't bother to inform us.
I count 6 messages from you and Ivan in the first page of this announcement: we can learn that a surprise is planned, that BluRay is supported and online update too, but there's not one mention about "known issues" reported by users. Are you considering us as "beta tester"? I think it wasn't the case, contrary to less respectful companies...
I don't consider these bugs significant since they only affect stereo AAC encoding at > +-240kbps VBR, and I think that such modes are not very useful
The choice was and always is between shipping a new encoder with these issues or not shipping a new encoder at all, and I think everybody is better served by having the new one.
If you are asking me to list all known bugs and deficiencies in the current encoder: no.
You aren't a "beta tester" for the two bugs that have been mentioned here: I already knew about them. You will find bugs in any software and there are certainly a few left in Nero. Does that make you a "beta tester"?
As for my remark linked, I don't think it would have been acceptable to stop the release or remove the new encoder for a bug in a mode that shouldn't really be used.
I nevertheless noticed irritating smearing with different samples. If people are interested to check if I'm not dreaming:- Nero Digital - iTunesThere are also audible problems with micro-impulse like signal, but considering the bitrate, it's more or less the case for all encoders/formats.
Oh come on. I'll be the first one to admit that it's bloated. But.. The installer is 100MB. In the age of broadband, that is nothing. And you can install only the parts that you want. So it's like bitching that you get stuff for free. That's like... well, dumb. What you should bitch about, are the shitloads of unfixed bugs. Though I have to admit I haven't tried this new version. But I'm sure there are still some left.
Just bear in mind that many companies out there do not even communicate with the customers and communities this way - leave alone listen to the requests and work on wished features and bugfixes with communities.
So, I apologise for some borderline settings that might not work correctly in the current release, but we are really doing all we can to make sure everything is top-notch quality, which I believe it already is
And, yes, bugs reported are fixed already - and fixes will be there, too.
No, starting from now - Nero AAC will be updated in much more frequent manner - and this week you will see how
Does the AAC encoder go open source, or become a separate free download that anyone can use for free?
Now you're asking me to reveal all my secrets. What will be the surprise then?
I can't use it anymore with foobar2000 0.9.1.
Do you know what the problem is? Lame has also issues with these samples (gapless issues I also noticed on real track separation).

To remove Nero Scout, just execute:regsvr32 /u "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Ahead\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"
