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
Yeah, I caved in and listened to the tracks before going to sleep.
From my laptop, everything sounds bad anyway, so via computer playback, all the tracks sounded the same.
It was only when I put them on the iPod that I could hear enough extra detail to differentiate between them - but again, the audible differences are small, at least with my $550 portable setup.
The first track has slightly more focus, tightness, punch, clarity, detail, brightness, separation, extension, and tonality. You can hear into the attack and echoes of the percussion better. The instruments sound just a little bit more lush.
I immediately noticed that the other two tracks sound a little dry, flat, muffled and distant, with more bloated bass in comparison to the first track.
I would say the third track is the lowest quality. I can hear and feel a tiny bit of extra distortion that gives me more of a headache.
If you're just listening casually, you may not notice any of these differences; it requires paying closer attention. It was easier for me to hear differences between lossless and lossy versions of some of my own CD rips.
Anyway, this is a cool song. Sorry I couldn't properly ABX it.
V0? I couldn't even dream of having such a high quality format.
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.
Some YouTube links sound okay, while others are so distorted that it's painful to listen to. (In these cases, the CD literally sounds ten times better than those bad links.)
It matters more than a bit when the sound quality is all but eviscerated in 25% of the YouTube links I go to...
I wish Head-Fi had a high-five emoticon.
I've only known Spada for a short while, but he's already my favorite member here! =D
Fu.ck gifs, this is the only "I can fap to this" image you'll ever need.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
For those unaware, this photo is of Richard D. James, best known for his electronica band Aphex Twin.
There's a Teen Titans parody series called Teen Titans Go! where (I think) they intentionally made it as stupid as possible, in a comedic way. (The original Teen Titans is very dark and serious for a kid's show.)
It's like...from this:
The Dillinger Escape Plan did a great cover of "Come To Daddy"...I also randomly met the mother of one of the band members in a grocery store.
(The rest of this EP is much crazier. Essential material if you're into experimental metal, hardcore, metalcore, mathcore, etc.)
