......because we are oversampling with the FLAC format (~900 kbps vs. 320 kbps)....
CD quality @ 44kHz is oversampling the audio band by design
mp3s are decimated versions of the original signal
I'd still appreciate some suggestions for existing software that will avoid inserting zero padded samples in places having CRC mismatches.
I'm getting this "nonsense" from years of experience as a signal processing engineer.
There's such a thing as decimation-in-frequency, but I think the guy really ought to revisit his copy of Oppenheim and Schafer.
That would be a gross simplification.
Why do you think mp3s are lossy? Because it resamples (and compresses) using either constant or variable bit rates that are DECIMATED and filtered versions of the original.
So are these ripping errors from Red Book Audio CDs or are they errors from flac files that have gotten corrupted?
It could be either at this point.
