Hi Guys,

I am new here and I like to do a comparison between uncompressed music and MP3 192kbps.
There is no doubt in my mind that you experts have some suitable samples for me, I mean suitable so that one actually can hear the difference. I do have a decent stereo set and I can convert uncompressed wav files to MP3.
So are there any such files floating around here?

Thanks

Edmund

Speaking shortly there are different groups of samples. The most important are two first.
1. Transients - pre-echo issues (castanets, electronic, rock)
2. Tonal (classic instruments: harpsichord, trumpets etc).
3. Speech, stereo separation, quite/loud etc.
And the combinations of these groups.

What's the technical term for the distorion I hear I can only describe as "swirly", everyone? Listening to audience applause it would sound like the phase was being modulated slightly, once or twice per second, I'd say.

I hear it on sat. radio stations, at times, and was first exposed to it on the opening of Pearl Jam's "Daughter" (when encoded at too low a rate), a "codec killer" track recommended by David Ranada of then "Stereo Review/ Sound and Vision" magazine.
