problem samples for WavPack lossy 2007-05-12 10:06:10 Here is my dumping ground for any samples I find to be exceptionally problematic for WavPack lossy mode. Links are in WavPack lossless format. I suggest re-compressing with the lowest possible bitrate (-b24) at first to see how bad it sounds, then gradually working up until transparency is achieved (or, perhaps never achieved until the bitrate hits lossless).All comments, or postings of other problem samples, are welcome. I am curious how my sample(s) compare to 'badvilbel' which I've never heard for myself. In the case of my first sample though, it is a problem only for WavPack lossy...mp3 has no problems encoding this same passage transparently at low bitrate. From my limited experience thus far, it seems that what WavPack lossy finds difficult to encode is very different from what mp3 finds difficult to encode, and also very different from what WavPack lossless finds difficult to compress.
