flac uses lossless compression and therefore sounds 100% like the original. If flac sounds worse than uncompressed audio for you, you are doing something very wrong.Red_Breast wrote:Also even though flac is compressed [...]
This is possible, of course. However I suggest you take an experiment:Red_Breast wrote:I can hear the difference between flac and mp3 when I rip a ScummVM game with CD Audio.
Give someone else an uncompressed audio sample and let him compress it with "lame --preset extreme" or even "lame --preset insane" and then save the result as uncompressed audio again. Then let him return original and result to you with random filenames.
Without graphicaly viewing the audio-spectrum it will be damn hard to find out which file was crippled by lame.
