Ok, first of all, lemme say that I've been playing with Garf's tuned encoder, -b 999, and it sounds in-f@&king-credible! Fantastic!

Anyhow, I was wondering 'bout something kinda stoopid (remember, I'm no guru - that's why I ask you guys). On the r3mix forums awhile back, there was a discussion about resampling files from 44100 Hz to 48000 Hz for MP3 encoding. Obviously, merely upsampling the files cannot really increase resolution. But, for reasons I haven't fully grokked yet, this technique was supposed to better mask certain MP3 artifacts.

Can't say I've played with it much, but I was wondering if this is indeed worthwhile for MP3, and if it would be worthwhile at all to upsample a file for Ogg Vorbis as well. Would this also mask artifacts - or just be a silly waste of time? smile.gif

(not that I have a big problem with artifacts with Vorbis, mind you... smile.gif

Just curious.
