There are lots of cases when alt-presets or any mp3 are not transparent, but I gather few "easy" but distorted cases which should be used to further tweak and check alt-preset standard quality.

I'll put more samples here in the future so that those are easier to find and can be found from the same place.
My intention is not to list clips with very hard attacks, other known extreme clips or clips which cause great trouble for every codec.
More like "easier" cases which in my opinion should be handled better by alt-preset standard.

Clip found by Wombat. Introduces added noise from 1.2-2sec and 4-6sec.

Although soft attacks, still introduces pre-echo hiss (most noticeable in the beginning).

Dogwhistle is chirping.

Audible distortion in the background.

In all 4 vbr presets distortion is added, mostly with the "e" when she sings "become".

Very bad distortion at about 3.5 sec.

Liebestod sample to try a switch we all know for ages.

--ns-bass -8 DOES the trick!! The distortions are nearly gone!

Not only with that, sophia and Birds are cured also.

Does ns-bass affect anything else with alt standard deep inside the code?


Hrmm, interesting. --ns-bass -8 shouldn't really cause any problems though, other than causing the bitrate to increase. I'll try to take a look at this sometime this week, maybe it would be possible to implement a fix without having to resort to using --ns-bass all the time on these samples..
