Well, the "thing" cannot go above 96kbps, so if that's "good enough" for music, depends a lot on the ears of the user I presume the so-called Helix Producer can be called via command-line; Easy RealMedia Producer would be another option. AC3 is a pure transform codec yet even worse than hybrid mp3.

I remember a few games used Vorbis, and a few others used even WMA, but that was probably after year In such a scenario, the usage of an audio codec also implied an attention on its CPU usage. Music in games in the mid 90s used to be MIDI based or very low quality wav.

I see even the 44 kbps file has aueio up to 16 Khz and I know frequency response does not determine quality, but they are definitely more "trebly" than same bitrate mp3s. How to apply color correction using the Gradie Contact Us VideoHelp Top. The design was largely based on G.

Properly decoding it is now a problem though, FFAudiosource doesn't reproduce it faithfully. As a side question, QDesign codec was one of the earliest "low bitrate" ones, but it uses some agressive compression techniques that mean it has obvious artifacts even at kbps. All times are GMT What techniques did Aydio use to compress audio?
