Hello.

Let's see if this time noone attempts to mess the poll >_<

OK, let's choose an anchor - or a 6th competitor.

When choosing, keep in mind the test will be already quite fatiguing as it is - several codecs that probably come close to transparency at this bitrate. So, I would probably recommend a bad quality anchor, I believe such would considerably reduce fatigue.

Of course, keep that even more in mind if you are planning to vote on a 6th competitor :B

Quoting the master
QUOTE (ff123)
the anchor

1) should be significantly worse than any of the other codecs.

2) should sound bad enough to be readily identifiable. Yes, that will compress the ratings, but it will take a lot of the burden off the listener, who now need concentrate on one less codec. Also, it may encourage more people to participate, who might otherwise be scared off. I think lame and audioactive are too good, but the other mp3 codecs might work.


Also, keep in mind Lame has already been tested a lot: first multiformat test, 64kbps test, MP3 test... and it will also be tested at the next multiformat test, since it won the MP3 test.

Thanks for your help.

Regards;

Me.

***EDIT***: I don't guarantee the winner will be featured in the test. I will also depend on discussions and opinions.

Also, I do guarantee that if anyone messes with this poll, I'll bring everything down, force my choice of codecs down everybody's throat and God help us all! Don't start me, punks laugh.gif
