Hi all,

I've noticed a couple of audible distortions in an AAC track I bought on iTunes. I uploaded a small fragment of the track with distortions here: 53 FRAGMENT Sonata in A Minor, D. 821, 'Arpeggione '_ I. Allegro moderato.m4a. I wonder if these are compression artifacts or they were caused by something else?

I appreciate your help with this.

The original one has the same sound as well, as I supposed it's just a key vibration sound.

Thank you very much! This is very helpful. I was considering contacting iTunes and asking them to fix the issue. Now I see that it's not their fault.
