Re: wvgain Reply #25 – 2020-07-06 20:04:11 The bitrate on the long version sounds reasonable, but the bitrate on the shorter version is suspiciously low, which is why it's so small.I can think of three possible reasons. One is that while the file is stereo, it might actually be identical (or almost identical) in the two channels. You should be able to tell if you listen in headphones. Do the two tracks sound pretty similar?Another possibility is that the level is significantly lower in the shorter sample. This should be easy to see by looking at the replaygain values.Finally, the shorter file may have LSB redundancy. This means that a lot of bits are zero that shouldn't be and so the file is much more compressible. I don't know why that would be, but it's possible, and it could sound the same (there's a clever program called lossyWAV that takes advantage of this).I suppose that the larger one could have something making it harder to compress like high-frequency noise, but that's less likely.If you're really curious you could make the files available to me (maybe just the shorter one) and I could tell you exacly.
