Alternatives to subjective listening tests?
I know, I know. It's not a good idea. :-)
However, I am working at an audio encoder and I can't test hundreds of files for every minimal change I make.
And besides that, I am partially deaf, so it would be pointless anyway.
Any suggestion on some software that can help a bit? Open source/publicly available obviously preferred.
Thanks

Or google for PQevalAudio. Note that the PEAQ standard which these tools implement have problems with transients and parametric (non-waveform-preserving) audio codecs, so if an ODG gets worse due to an encoder change, it doesn't mean the file actually sounds worse.
