    Do you use ReplayGain/MP3Gain?

    The thing is that when you compress audio like with MP3, MPC, Vorbis etc. scalefactors should be taken in consideration. It's not the same thing as playing the PCM data file prior to the compression - to amplitude is higher in the new material - hence clipping without the source clipping...

    Modding the RME PAD

    Did anyone actually bother to test the PAD card prior to and after modding? It would be insteresting if anyone actually got any improvement or negative effect of this experiment. RMAA or SpectraLAB

    Foobar 2000--how do I switch to kernal streaming?

    uninteresting. home or not doesn't matter. KS is still illadviced as choice and isn't suspected to work as you might hope or think.

    Foobar 2000--how do I switch to kernal streaming?

    oh, and it's more likely you get a ****ed up output with KS. It doesnt improve sound quality, just prevents quality degradation

    Foobar 2000--how do I switch to kernal streaming?

    Just a little note, KS doesn't 'improve' sound. it bypasses kmixer, which also means you can disable 'wave' under sndvol32.

    stereo or joint stereo?

    As always, LAME MP3 encoder/decoder should be used.

    Dolby Digital vs DTS

    Quote: Originally posted by daniel422 DTS is slightly less compressed than DD -- but realisticly not enough for you to notice. The big difference is the complete re-mastering of the soundtrack. It makes direct comparison very difficult as far as sound quality goes. I will agree that I...

    How can a MiniDisc just erase itself?!?!?!

    Quote: Originally posted by MacDEF Fortunately, that's not possible. MiniDiscs are simply magneto-optical discs -- unless the recording laser is focused directly on a data block, there is no way the polarity of that block can be changed. I'm afraid it's not that simple. The...

    Quote: Originally posted by tanfenton MPC using MusePack 1.15a with the mppenc --braindead --ms 0 --nmt 32 --tmn 64 command line is as good as I've heard lossy compression sound. NGF You could change that magic line of yours to "mppenc.exe --insane" and hear no difference at all.

    Skips when using EAC in secure mode

    Skips when using EAC in secure mode

    it's due to the same reasons that I mentioned above your post. Most common is erroneus C2 usage, then there are drives that cache audio and you don't check "drive caches audio" in EAC. or your drive don't support Accurate stream (eg. not a burner). These are the most common "mistakes".

    Skips when using EAC in secure mode

    explanation: bad settings abuse of functions , paste the top of a log here, since you have three drives you should have three profiles for individual drive settings

    Is Redbook CD data-compressed?

    It'd be alot less confusing if you'd let the terminology stay in the correct context. "compression" as in the 2000's most used tool in studios to abuse and destroy music; lessening dynamics and causing overdrives. "compression" as in bitreduction either preserved or bitreduced compression...

    The very best sound card for audiophile quality sound from a PC

    digisoft: Pro Tools, Echo: Mona/Mia, Creamware: Pulsar/Scope/Luna etc. what output do you need? for most of these card you want to use the balanced XLR outs either directly to active monitors or a mixerboard.

    A dumb question on MP3

    with 48kHz MP3:s you'd get 10% shorter preecho, you use "--resample 48" to trigger it in LAME, but is it really worth it?
