Recommened codec for computer tape audio? (Flac: 688kB, 7z: 5kB) 2017-08-17 20:19:55 Hi.I'm looking for a codec that's suitable to compress the audio of old computer tapes. I have an audio file that is generated, so it's flawless in terms of noise. I will be using some device (a phone most likely) to play this audio file to a retro computer instead of using it's ageing tape player.A small mono wav-file is 1705kB, flac can compress it down to 688kB. 7z can compress the wav to 5kB! The flac-file can be compressed down to 25kB with 7z. (There are around 1kB of actual computer data in the audio file.)I understand that this is a very specific scenario when it comes to audio encoding. Are there any other codecs that are more suited for these tasks?If not, does anyonw know any Android player that transparently can decompress a 7z and play the wav inside it on the fly?Thanks.
