In a thread somewhere (I've been searching up and down and still haven't found the thread again), someone put in two samples to test for gapless playback.

Do you think these samples can be uploaded to the Wiki? Then we can make a page about "Testing for gapless" or somesuch, and people no longer have to search the forums again... like me... fruitlessly... tongue.gif

I've just created a sample suit which should be useful (and easy) to test gapless playback for all conditions (hardware, software, and even encoders).
gapless suite (2.1 MB)

The samples consist in 90 seconds of an old Beethoven recording (6th Symphony, recorded in 1939 - it's free of right in most countries), divided in 17 parts. I encoded it with WavPack lossy (which doesn't add padding like all transforms encoders).
Take care with MP3: LAME doesn't necessary handle this gaplessly (just tested with -V5 --vbr-new). It's fine with Vorbis (aoTuV q4), Musepack (1.15v q5), WavPack lossy of course; experimental Nero 3.1.0.2 has also big issues here.


P.S. To create a similar suite, just edit an existing .cue file and associate it to your favorite track. Then open the .cue with foobar2000: your file is virtually split into multiple part. You just have to encode it (losslessly or lossy-y) with foobar2000 smile.gif
