Depends on what you call "transparent".The encoder is indeed very efficient and every detail is clear at the highest VBR mode, but the sound is still kinda "compact" and a bit unnatural compared to the lossless files.
can anybody help with the new .dll?
please, add FhG codec dll as attach to this thread, so I can get this file from legal source
I have tried to get Winamp 5.562 standard, but I have legal problem with installation, probably its wrong build or beta release or wrong setup file[...]please, add FhG codec dll as attach to this thread, so I can get this file from legal source

Just curious, any chance to use this excellent codec with foobar or from command line? (without Winamp). I like this FhG thingy but dont want install Winamp just because of it.

Hi,I found channel mapping is incorrect for 4ch case.From what I can see, resulting 4ch AAC has default channel layout in ISO spec (C L R Cs).However, it seems L is mapped to C, R is mapped to L, and C is mapped to R.(I don't know if it's winamp side or Fhg side problem).
It's a Winamp problem. There's not really good support at the moment for surround encoding. It's pending some API changes to make it work effectively.

I'm getting " Conversion failed: The encoder has terminated prematurely with code 0 (0x00000000); please re-check parameters". Am I overlooking something obvious?

Thanks a lot for testing, Gainless! Unfortunately I can't hear any artifacts on this item myself. Which kind of artifact(s) did you hear, and in which passage? And I assume you used the latest Winamp version?Chris
If You don't listen the artifacts then it can be simply differences in the volume or time shifting.It will be more safe to apply time shifting and gain to ABX sessions. Page 11 of http://www.rarewares.org/rja/ListeningTest.pdf
