Recording from inside a parked car of rain falling on the roof. The carwas parked under a large tree resulting in very large drops hitting theroof & creating loud impacts with a slight metal resonance from theroof.
"Finally, since a 192kbps mp3 is damn good quality anyway why not just use that as the smaller dowload?"
"44.1KHz PCM is lossy already"
Just because you have Pro Tools, doesn't mean you know what you are talking about! If you did you would realize that anything above 16kHz in an mp3 is mono! Mp3 technology is based on masking and the fact that the ear can't hear certain frequencies so why should we need them. The high end sucks and the low end is very muddy. If you listen to hi hats, cymbals, etc you will notice they sound terrible and washed out. The only way to prove this to you is to tell you to take one of your cd's(if you own any) and A/B it with an mp3 of the exact same song. You will be blown awayby the difference, I guarantee it! The only reason that mp3's are good is because they are a smaller file size and they are convenient. Not to mention the internet helped them out a little. It doesn't matter how many kbps, it is still a lossy format! Meaning you lose information (High end Low end).
This is why you have to pay for the mp3 option in pro tools! Because noone uses it!Also 44.1kHz 16bit is the highest sample/bit rate that a compact disc can support... unless it is HD which can support 20bit. Do you mean lossless in comparison to reality or things Like DVD audio 48kHz 24bit? Next time, get some sleep and please do your research before you decide to post any useless information!
Great recording! And thanks for having it in FLAC, which is pretty much standard these days, no matter what captainswingarm sez. :-)
urm, theres these things called converters....where you can convert files to mp3, wave or whatever you want....so why does this even matter?
do a google search on dbpoweramp, it might come in handy more than once being on this site!
o and pro-tools is late :P (poke poke)
