by chance i discovered audio glitches in AAC encoding. I used 256 CBR Stereo AAC w/ XLD 20110821 on Mac OS 10.6.8 with high or best mode, but it gave me a eventually "scratchy sound". I contacted the developer of XLD, "tmkk". He cross-checked it w/ iTunes Plus internal encoding and confirmed this bug and suggested me to contact this forum since here are some of the iTunes' AAC encoder's developers. So could anyone please have a look into this?

The affected source file can be found here:

Already at the intro there is an alteration of the sound recognizable. There it sounds quite musical (it seens a little bit like conga drums on top of the bassdrum) but since I composed it on my own I know which sounds I've put in and which not.
And then very noticably from 2:35 through the end, five times very significantly.

Try to convert it on your own.
Thanks for your efforts and response on this in advance smile.gif

Reason for edit: restoring link; self-composed so not a TOS #9 violation
