Sample that kills Garf\'s 160 mode 2001-12-07 23:36:57 Oh dear. It all began when in one song (Bee Gees - Man In The Middle) I heard a really awful high frequency artifact, but the sound that caused the artifact really was so extreme that I thought it couldn't happen on any other sample with Garf's cool 160 mode.Anyway, I was proven wrong . I can't get them all together, but I have seen a few more tracks in the last few weeks that reveal flaws in the high frequency areas (I promise, I'll try to get them all together, but as many tracks were from CDs out of the library, I don't know when I can get the originals next time).I have uploaded one test sample here (1 MB download):http://www.volcanocenter.f2s.com/samples/taking_you_home.pac (Use right-click -> Save target as)It's the intro to Don Henley's "Taking You Home" (from the 2000 album "Inside Job").Listen to the 3 tambourine-like strokes across the 10 second sample, and you'll see what I mean - they become quite badly distorted. Before anybody asks : I'm not hearing things, I ABXed it easily 16/16 times.Could you look into this, Garf? I find those problems quite surprising, since on just about any other type of sample (especially impulses), the 160 mode will rival just about any other "low" bitrate setting, although on impulses the bitrate bloats extremely.Is there any chance you can improve the 160 mode a bit to handle clips like this, or is it still a general Vorbis problem?CUDominicPS: I'll test other codecs with the sample thoroughly tomorrow. Results from a quick'n'dirty test: --r3mix produced REAL bad ringing, and --dm-preset standard (the old version from the official compile) wasn't very much better. The rev7 standard preset improved a lot on that. I'll post details tomorrow (in the thread where they actually belong ).
