The cheat codes I created were hardcore too, like making my character be able to fly! (And I'm not even sure the programmers intended this.)

Probably V0 LAME MP3 or 256 kbps AAC.
Most people won't be able to tell the difference.

^ Include are 3 files: 1 original 24/96 recording in FLAC, 1 320 kbps AAC, and 1 V0 MP3
One of the two lossy files was converted from the other

 

It is far more difficult than that to protect your privacy online. This may help you further down the rabbit hole...

 

I mentioned before that with about 75% of the music I tested, I could accurately differentiate between lossless and lossy. Sometimes it was a night and day difference. But the real issue is the drastic quality loss when you repeatedly convert between lossy formats. The only wise move is to rip to lossless, at least to have a backup, then convert to whatever you like.

That website looks extremely suspicious. It's like those "lose 20 pounds in 1 week with this special diet pill, just put your e-mail here," or "find her g-spot and make her crazy for you every day, just put your e-mail here" kind of things.


Mind if you post your ABX log with those files then since you claim it's so easy for you? wink.gif
I'm curious if you can detect which one is the lossy-lossy.

*sigh* There is such a thing as unhealthy skepticism. If you're not willing to enter your email to get valuable information for free (much less pay money to get even better information), then it's obviously not important to you in the first place.

 

I wouldn't have linked you to it if I didn't already know it could benefit you. (I have read the ebook.)

 

I did not document my own tests, sorry. Nor did I download the files you linked to. I have no incentive to do so.

I played back when it was just released, well before Season 1... Kinda died out for me and I ended up going back a couple times for a little bit here or there. I'm more of a spectator now, the esports scene around it is incredible. Their animation staff is awesome, too, that cinematic was amazing.

Yep. Heck, I'd even accept V0 on the go.

The thing is, lossy audio often sounds unacceptably bad to me. Granted, the differences are usually slight, but still significant enough to annoy me or even give me a headache.

You should do the test :D.

 

 I just played through all 3 tracks back to back... didn't even notice the tracks changed. That's how indistinguishable it was for me.

I thought I was the only one.

V0? I couldn't even dream of having such a high quality format. :p

 

YouTube quality is more than good enough for me!

 

At one point during my journey I was really pedantic about file formats, and then I just got honest with myself and decided, it doesn't freaking matter one bit.
