We aren't talking about lossless codecs; it seems from your post that you don't know of any lossy codecs.
These are not original poster's samples but they have worked reliably for showing gapless issues for me. part 1 and part 2.
Small Pop between tracks using Lame VBR- V-0I am ripping with EAC and encoding with Lame, (version 3.98). 99% of the time I get a perfect transition between tracks that are suppose to be gapless (I.E Pink floyd albums) but I have a few tracks that have a very very small tick or pop from one track to the next. EAC said copy was 100% perfect. I am using Foobar for P.C playback.As i said it is not between every track just the odd one or two. Does anyone have any ideas? I have tried various releases of lame and EAC the Glitch is always in the same spot it and is not showing up in the WAV file, only the encoded Lame fileThanks.
If you rip it to a single file with cuesheet, then encode that file to MP3, you can split using pcutmp3 to generate a different kind of gapless information than LAME provides. Doing this might fix your problem.
They do produce a click. Listen again more closely and use headphones if necessary.

I made a DSP component for foobar that automatically fades the beginning and end of tracks to silence and it gives me glitchless transition on all problem tracks I have tried so far. If you wish to try download Fake Gapless DSP.
Here's 10 second clips of tracks that produce even more audible glitch that you will easily hear even with speakers. They are from tracks 1 and 2 of Misplaced Childhood by Marillion.
...I convert them to MP3 V0320 and play them in foobar... Odd.

(often fuelled by estimates quoted by frontends), in this case -V0 and 320 kbps.
I wasn't implicating foobar2000.Or any application, in this case, since a VBR file obviously can't have an average bitrate of 320 kbps.
Maybe it depends which version of Foobar2000 he's using
I don't hear any glitches when I play those 2 FLAC files in foobar, nor do I hear any when I convert them to MP3 V0320 and play them in foobar.

I meant 320, the V0320 thing was a typo.Basically: CBR MP3 = No popVBR V0 = pop
