I noticed that this encoder produces 88.2 kHz .m4a files when the input is 44.1 and bitrate>=320kpbs. 48kHz remains untouched.Is it a bug or a feature?
is it all bitrates >320kbps, even 324kbps? I'll check myself also.
I tried to create a 30 s sample in which the artifact would occur at 25 s, but the cut source file did not produce the same artifact. Apparently only the complete track triggers it.
By chance I noticed a serious encoding artifact (I'd actually describe it as a bug) when I tested this encoder with some gapless albums.
@C.R.Helmrichhi, do you plan to add adts support for VBR mode too?_
Are you considering higher bitrate VBR presets? I use Q 0.9 with Nero which result in ~375 kbps with modern music and around ~250 kbps with older less hifi music. You (Fhg) have constant bitrate up to 448 kbps for us who want some reassurance headroom ...
Am I correct to assume that the v. 03.02.03 is still not available?Edit: Winamp 5.621 is still the latest build and its encoder version is 03.02.02. (at least in my installer, downloaded July 14)
I assume you like the idea of headroom in order to avoid non-transparent encodings. Actually I tuned FhG's encoder for precisely that, using also the most "killer" items I could find here on HA. At the highest VBR mode, any item should be transparent. If it is not, please notify me. Until then, I see little point in adding a very-high-rate VBR mode.In any case, you'd have to ask benski since he decides (and has to implement) which modes are/will be available in the Winamp GUI.Chris
