The download has expired.  Could you post it again, please? I'm always interested in "killer" samples for testing MP3, AAC, and others.
If I don't reply to your reply, it means I agree with you.

The point of the uploads forum is that you can attach files to your posts here instead of linking to external annoying file hosts.

for testing codecs I always use sample from song of Michael Jackson - 2000 Watts - electric sound which is so hard to encode with good quality

Ogg Vorbis minimum 192 Kb/s to get near CD Quality
WMA Pro 64 Kb/s ...  codec sounds realy better than latest HE AACplus v2 at 64 Kb/s I encode songs in Windows 7 which have Windows Media Player 12 and WM version 12.0.7000.7000

- check yourself and encode

Best regards

Can anyone test True VBR please? Thanks.

Didn't ABX, just a simple test and I think -V91 may be transparent for me.
