Current version of SoundSlimmer losslessly compresses Mp3 and Mp3Pro files averaging 20% less file size, while general purpose archivers are capable to reduce file to 1-2%.
SoundSlimmer works with audio data only utilizing certain specifics of digital sound signals to losslessly slim the audio content.---and---The core of the SoundSlimmer is a semantic approach to the data that represented music and correlation analysis of spectral data patterns called sound genes .

It also requires you to give your email address before you can download their program. Thanks, but no thanks.

What I didn't checked is if the app is working like mafuka and if it stores the spared data somewhere on the HDD

Sound Slimmer 1.04.001 (06.07.2005) - a very very cool lossless! recompressor for MP3 and mp3PRO audio files, capable of reducing every MP3 song from 12 % to 46% without loosing quality; without cheating; without deleting; reaching new world record on MP3 testset, and all MP3 files I compressed with this demo available at www.soundslimmer.com could be easily extracted bit by bit; even checksums matched.Despite that, Sound Slimmer handled MP3 files created with all known encoders on the market, accepted mono, stereo and joint stereo formats at all imaginable CBR bitrates and VBR encoded titles.MP3's containing newer music are usually reduced by 12%, music from the 80's by 20% and most classic or silent relaxation titles up to 36 to 46%.

Then, move the original files, and bit-compare. You might want to try with different content, too. (eg. a real mp3)

I want to know how they did this.
More that that, I want that incorporated in lame encoder by default H.
The linked paper is in Russian, so I can't make sense of it, and it looks like a general overview of existing things anyway.
Including that in LAME would break the compatibility with thousands of hardware and software decoders.
Can someone try to rename some OggVorbis or AAC file to .mp3 and try to feed soundslimer with it?
