Sadly, they don't offer the vinyl master as 24bit download, so I have no choice if I want the best quality.
Also, if you want to show how good your declipper is, release a standalone demo version with time limit or adding a tone every minute or so. In this way users can really try them with the audio files they have, instead of showing unreliable statistics or ratings.
The dishonesty of your analyser.
If someone post the screenshots like I do in some forums and criticizing the quality of modern pop, or which specific pressing or release of the same album is the best (based on the analysis result) and so on, can your analyser actually tell which version sounds more dynamic and less clipped to someone?
I listened to the files I posted, apart from the inevitable noise and frequency response change in the cassette version, other versions sound identical to my ears, I mean I cannot ABX them after level matching. You asked me to see flat-tops, yes I can clearly see them but how about listen to them? Actually the cassette version sounds worse than other versions in my opinion due the limitation of cassette technology, obviously not "Ace" quality. It doesn't sound more dynamic, unclipped or pleasing to me.
I can predict if I capture the waveform of the full version of SeeDeclip and analyze it the quality score will also greatly improved due to the flawed algorithm of your analyzer. So it also lies about the effectiveness or your declipper, as well as a cassette deck, a phase shifter or declippers from other competitors. Is it honest?
Quote"the standard" was referring to your proposal: A standard based on 32bit floats so there's no magnitude limit.I assume you'd already thought about the other questions - I'm not sure why I'd know the answers, it wasn't my proposal.I wasn't going to mandate anything, because I don't know anybody who could. The usage of the floating point format was meant to be:

'd suggest you read up on "Mastered For iTunes".
Still, it's an interesting social experiment into tribal behaviour, quite fascinating.
