[RETARD] OT 2003-10-03 20:21:06 QuoteOK...the only things in the world that are "ready" are dirt and rocksNot even those (Remember corrosion and "billions of years" - our line is a needle in a haystack...)Quote--alt-presets as is, and don't bother adding -m s behind themOK - I'll do some more ear-testing with those....P.S. the "unwanted echo" and some other produces of MP3-codecs sounds like interesting some times - as I previously told "the story of live music becoming to artificial format after studios and ADC / DAC conversions", that just adds some more artifics to the results - Sometimes with "nice" results....Hmm AAC and the competition? I could refer it as car-makers (and especially sellers) : Our make and model is most suitable just for You! And the price is reasonable : Just take a ride and see yourselves!...P.S. FooBar sounds like well (winamp 3 just sucks, wa2 is ok). Personally I like J. River's Latest Media Center 9.1, it's like a central for all needs and the sound is well, Good media library, multi- / singletagger, Build-In TV, DVD-Player, much formats (now MP4 also), a FourCC changer / DirectSound Window to make recording presets for video / audio etc...Also I own the all-hated MMJB v8 (the only thing I like with it is my subsciption to Radio-MX Platinum with AOD / MOD). They promised that at the end of this year we can make our own "radio-stations" meaning MAOD, own playlists and CD-Transparent Quality is now around 128k to 160k (Of cource I record them with CEPro v2.1 24bit raw data and screw them to MP3's, MP3Pro's or AAC with the new plugin to get "less lossy" output. Audiotools is also a fine app with the ability to cut the input intellectually and make direct MP3's (no MP4 plugin yet...). Just put Camtasia Recorder to rec the main playlist screen and name the files afterwards....Out-Topic and much - No alcohol, no drugs just need to "finger" a bit P.S. Explain me one thing : why are You taking so seriously everything - in this forum I have seen less humour than ever - are all You experts such a stonefaces and unflexible ? A bit lmao and laugh pse...?
