AAC / Re: VS
Last post by tpijag -
I believe you are chasing down the wrong path.

The salient point is at what setting does the lossy version of a track become noticeable [to your ears] compared to the original lossless file.

Your ABX comparison should be lossless VS the various levels of your choice of lossy codec.

At what point can you not tell one from the other?
i can't tell 192/224 from 256 and mp3 320

Can someone please help.
I'm making a discography and need a base value to convert to after ripping to m4a
It seems 256 is the answer but im looking for another viable option like 224
if anyone can compare the 224 to 256 and 224 to mp3 320 it would be a lifesaver

m4a aac 256kbps
m4a aac 224kbps >> mp3 320
m4a aac 192kbps

FLAC / CUE sheet track limit

I know that CUE sheets are supposed to be limited to a maximum of 99 tracks.  Is there a workaround for this?
Support - (fb2k) / Re: can't convert flac to apple lossless with v1.4 on windows 10
Last post by Porcus -
On my laptop, I convert to the Apple Lossless encoder and they become
.M4A files from .flac. I assumed .m4a is apple lossless(codex?).

.m4a means it is audio in an MP4 container. MP4 can contain a lot of things, but is the typical choice of file format both for ALAC audio and for AAC audio. Merely looking at the .m4a in the file explorer does not tell you whether it is ALAC or AAC in it, though file size could give you a hint.
