Hello,

I'm using Nero 1.5.4.0 AAC codec in Foobar 1.1.10. I converted the same source file to AAC using two different settings: q0.38 and q0.40. Theoretically, the q0.38 should have resulted in smaller file/lower bitrate. However, the resulting files were just the opposite - the q0.38 file ended up being larger / higher bit rate than the q0.40 file. How can that be?

I realize this is rather academic as nobody could potentially tell the two apart in ABX listening. I just found it a bit abnormal.

Thanks!

By coincidence I encountered the same problem just a few days ago :insane: but haven't checked in this Forum so far but over at Doom9 (this threat) so I missed it allready beeing a topic here. Though there you will only find my results on a few sources and no more "findings" for now.

Btw. Where your sources where you find the problem 48kHz samples?
As I now experienced it happen on that sampling rate, but not when downsampled to 44.1kHz...
