Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Samples by Sephirotic

Original Thread

Like described in the Original Thread, I decided to do a small listening test comparing some modern AAC codecs.
I selected a couple of samples already available at this forum but decided to also make some of my own, since as a personal listening test, I will mainly test musics I like.
This is from my father's vastly classical CDs collection

Mahler's 8th symphony by Daniel Bernstein, Recorded in 1991 with Wiener Philharmoniker Orchestra. It's the final 30 seconds of the First Capo. After some preliminary tests, this particular sample seemed to be a difficult one. Lot's of Brass, high pitched violins, both baritono and soprano voices with an organ in the background! Only missing for this being a perfect romantic-orchestral sample would be a symphonic cymbal, too bad!
