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.
*sigh* what ignorance. captainswarming, flac *is* lossless. Please read:
If lossless compression doesn't exist, then explain me how ZIP works? :-)
flac is not lossless. It just sounds a bit less lossy compared to compression methods. Compression is achieved by removing data. Even .wav are lossy - everything over 22KHz is discarded. I personally can't hear the difference between a high bit-rate mp3 and a flac, and since all major audio software supports mp3 but not flac, i don't see the need for it. Why use Audition when I've paid for Sound Forge and Pro Tools? I'm all for open-source and free-ness, but I'm also for ease of use. I don't need yet another piece of software to deal with yet another file format (like matroska - grr!)
Hey, Flac files are lossless and half as bulky as wav. Converting them back to wav is *very* easy, just search a bit around. There exists also a plugin to load flac directly into Audition, and it's great!
... so no-one can use it. If you can't use it in sound forge, pro-tools or logic, I don't really see the point. It's not even a compressed format. A wav wouldn't be much larger and everyone could use it. Still... nice recording.
flac is a superb format and freesound supports it, so, ...
