Can you tell the difference between a lossless file and a lossy file in a ABX test o.o"
depends on each individual i guess....
In short, there isn't any reliable way to identify fake and real lossless data.
You may want to search Hydrogenaudio forum for more information.
Can you provide some links to good discussions? There are a gajillion topics in there,
only works for Windows. Any such check for IOS?
The only tried and true way to know.
Spectro doesn't play nice with files over 10 mins. Seeing as it's common practice to have the entire album as one FLAC and then use a .cue file, Spectro is a bad idea.
Audacity is also working under IOS and can be downloaded from here:
Hi, sorry for digging out an old thread, but I have a question regarding these spectral diagrams. I'm not sure how to interpret these two MP3 files and would love some help.
So the first one is a a 256 kbps MP3 file ripped a long time ago using iTunes.
The second one is a 320 kbps MP3 file, converted from a FLAC version to MP3 via XLD.
Is this normal? According to http://www.whatinterviewprep.com/prepare-for-the-interview/spectral-analysis/,
It looks to me my "256 kbps" file fits the 320 kbps description more. Is there something wrong with my XLD? Or is everything fine and I'm just confused? Thanks so much.
Any word about lossless files above 44.1/16? For instance I have some tracks in 88.2/24, tried most of the apps mentioned here, but none of them seemed to be able to handle them.
Sox handles hi res.
Spek is multiplatform and handles hi-res.
If that "old" file was from many years ago, the encoder used may also be a factor since back then different encoders could sound quite different from each other (and I don't think itunes was very friendly with mp3 back then either)
Thanks for the valuable information
I can not reach the official Spectro site given in the links above. Does anyone know what happened to the site? I have downloaded it a few times in the last 2 years. But now the web page is not opening. I would really appreciate any info.
