Thanks for the info _mē_. I think I will try the --optimize --experimental switch combinations, although I will probably have to begin a new test since I read that the latter switch was helpful in reducing CD material. The testing I conducted and reported about consisted mostly of mono files.

I was using v4.910b, the difference being OFR has --maximumcompression but OFF does not, nor does OFF have the --experimental switch.

In short- after the start of this thread I had been working on a CoolEdit project and was curious about OptimFrog float (I used WavPack for float mostly for its FLT plug-in). Although not necessarily in-line with the OP's aims, it does qualify as a "lossless compression test," so I decided to include the results below for those interested (maybe David would be wink.gif ).
