I heard that it is backward compatible with AAC.

What is the compression ratio like?



Check out this website in Singapore about MPEG4-ALS.

It's about SLS, which is something entirely different.

Now I am really confused... SLS or ALS or HD-AAC??? blink.gif

MPEG-4 SLS = AAC + correction layer. Can be scaled from Lossless to quality of the AAC stream. Backwards compatible. Can also work without AAC layer (not backwards compatible).

MPEG-4 ALS = 2 pure lossless codecs under one name. Works either similar to FLAC (normal settings) or Monkey Audio (-z settings)

AAC-HD = prolly just a trademark for one particular vendor's implementation of MPEG-4 SLS

Hi all,
I checked with the lastest source code (v.22). Why with some combined modes (e.g -t2 -z1 or -s2 -z1) the decoder cannot decode?
Is this legal setting?

Thanks!

I said -z3, not -z3 -p -t2 -b. These settings might not even work correctly.



ALS is really 2 totally different encoders:



1) foward prediction like FLAC: used by normal settings, and -7 and so, with extras like -p -t2 -b etc



2) backwards prediction like APE and WavPack: used by -z settings, won't combine with most of the other methods



You can use on or the other, but not both.

Thank Garf,
I'm just curious and a newbie about the ALS and s I checked source code of Encoder side, the backward adaptive predictor (z#) cannot combine with multichannel coding related option (i.e #t or #s)

Here is the my brief description:
EncodeFrame{
if (RLSLMS){
Encode...
}
if (MCC)
{
Encode...
}
}
If we choose both -z# option and #t or #s option, so the MCC mode will overwrite the bitstream created by RLSLMS mode (and certainly these two bitstreams do not have equal length in byte).

But the Decoder will treat this bitstream as an RLS-LMS one, so that's the reason why the output of Decoder for two modes (-z# -t#) and (-z# -s#) cannot correct, in the worse case it cannot even decode.
