Quote from: cure4sale on October 26, 2006, 15:54:47So, do you really think once every shows are in Flac people are gonna discuss more and more?
Quote from: cure4sale on October 26, 2006, 15:54:47I agree with the fact that lossless quality files are what we're all looking for. But once again, a bad recording will remain a bad recording even if it's in Flac, Wav, Aif, or mp3. True that it will be worse in mp3. But what will you loose? Some top end (high frequencies) I suppose? Not a crime on a "bassy" recording. And what about spending 4 more time dowloading a show and taking 4 more space disk?
Quote from: cure4sale on October 26, 2006, 15:54:47Instead of saying NO MORE MP3's, we better think about a rule for encoding. eg: Top quality shows, FM shows, master or 1st generation copies, SNB shows and recent gigs : All in Flac. Poor copies of very old stuff remains in mp3.WHat do you think?
Quote from: Paul on October 27, 2006, 21:56:01Whithout being nostalgic: There was a time everybody was quite satisfied with downloading in mp3.
Quote from: Paul on October 27, 2006, 21:56:01I really can't understand why people 'hate' this file format, now. A Sh*t sounding show will always sound like that, no matter flac or mp3
Quote from: Darth Blood on October 26, 2006, 20:58:08if the objective is to encourage the dicuss on teh forum... i guess the rule could be open de download sectio to member with a determinate number of post... then the people enabled to download will be people that use to discuss in the forum... otherwise MP3 or FLAC formatswill be matter of preferences... i do preferr FLAC format... but no all the boot are available on Flac format so i download some MP3Â´s... so i dont thinks its matters of the quality of the downloads, is matters of the objective of the forum... ENCOURAGE TO ARGUE IN THE TOPICS...just my point of view
Quote from: lostflower4 on October 28, 2006, 14:32:50We came to this decision for various reasons. My primary intention here was not to increase the discussion on the forum. For me, it's simply sad to see all these poor versions of shows circulating. What am I talking about? Often, mp3 stuff is inferior to other versions available. Surely there are some exceptions where the definitive version of a show is shared in high-quality mp3, but I'm also really sick to death of all the 128 bitrate (and lower!) stuff. Some of that stuff really does sound like garbage. There's an art to mp3 encoding itself, but I think the times have progressed to the point where such a format can be left behind.Those are just a few of the reasons. I could go on and on, but I think I've already stated some of the others in previous posts, as have other members.As for this "rule" making us seem like another forum, I'll have to disagree. To be like that, we'd have to reduce the quality of things here, with bogus lineage, and a few fakes shows in mix. Oh, and I would have already banned anyone that openly disagreed with our decision.
