From site:

NCT ALF2 CD Audio Codec is high quality and fast encoder/decoder of audio data, written in CD Audio standard (44100 Hz, 16 bit, Stereo). NCT ALF2 CD audio codec allows to encode and decode with the following bitrates: 256 Kbps, 320 Kbps, 384 Kbps, 512 Kbps.

Codec is based on original method of audio compression, which doesn't use patented audio compression algorithms (MP3 and others).

ALF2 CD Audio Codec is implemented as standard Windows ACM driver. It allows to use well known program, for example such as Winamp, Windows Media Player, CoolEdit and others for playback and editing compressed audio files.

Main features of ALF2 CD:

It is a free distributed format. Developers don't require any fee for using this format.
High encoding speed. Time of encoding of 1 minute of high quality music (44100 Hz, 16 bit, Stereo) is approximately 10-15 seconds on Pentium II, 300 MHz, RAM 64 Mb.

Personnally I don't have the equipment and experience to evaluate the quality, but I'd be interested in using the 512 kbps setting (saving AVI's and transcoding later on)

Any comment would be highly appreciated
