Speech Codecs / Re: Codec for low dynamic range, noisy (rf crackle) speech?
Last post by MetaPixel -
I don't know how these equipment of yours works, but if bandwidth isn't a problem the Opus codec is one of the best options as it can go from very high quality transparent audio down to intelligible 6kb/s speech and have very low latency (20ms by default, can go even lower or higher if needed).
The crackles you talk about... if there are crackles in this analog transmission I guess there would be some packet loss, Opus can compensate for packet loss as well using forward-error correction. Here are some examples, including one with the mentioned forward error correction. Note that the latest versions sounds even better than these examples.

If the bandwidth ever gets to be a problem, consider Codec 2 as well. It is also open source, designed for low bandwidth HF/VHF digital radio and can do good enough speech with lots of noise even at around 2kb/s.

The improved stereo speech + new speech/music detection helped a lot with encoding ASMR, thank you very much!

I have been waiting on this (the x64 build) so I can re-rip my entire collection from FLAC to Opus @ 64kbps or 96kbps etc.

I think he was trying to imply it's not lossless because you can stuff any data you want into it, including decoded MP3 files. But in that case, CDs aren't lossless either, since you can burn audio tracks from any lossy source you want.

It would be because I'm probably doubling the volume of the NukedOPL3, and an update to NukedOPL3 doubled the volume, negating that change. I do need to update the component.
MP3 / Re: best mp3 encoder with something better than a command line interface?

If you upgrade your gear in the future all you need to do is redo the EQ settings to suit and not have to rerip and reencode your music again in to further "tweaked" mp3s.
You can't save EQ settings as metadata?
The EQ would be set up for his current setup, with different speakers\headphones or even device the EQ might need to be changed to suit. still far less painful then manipulating the sound of the mp3s.
