Why is the frequency cutoff at 14-15 kHz, this looks worse then most 192 kbps encodes?!
If someone checked this he would probably think this is a re-encode or web-rip.
Now I guess some people might say this is theoretically possible, depending on the specifics of the music the encoder might decide to filter those frequences and so on, but this is clearly not the case and here's the proof (surprise, surprise). When I use the same encoder and settings, but a different front-end (All2LAME) I get an MP3 file with this spectrogram:
So is foobar2000 doing something wrong or am I missing something or what?
Same thing happens with some other songs by Red Harvest, but not all - for most of them it's the usual for 320 CBR ~20 kHz cutoff, but for some like this one it strangely drops to almost 14.
I really don't care if your files look good enough in a spectrogram to satisfy fools on piracy sites.
You're missing one important point: Spectrograms don't tell you whether the choices the lossy encoder made are audible.
