@raina - d00d you still think 320kb VBR mp3 is the shizz, right?
Bet you think that .webm is open-source too dont'cha?

Not at all, MP3 is lossy as well. Now WAV, FLAC or whatever lossless I don't mind paying for. I know next to nothing about .webm and open source is nice but what do those have to do with this? Bandcamp does offer a FLAC option and if bittin was inclined to get it, his Bandcamp session might still be valid for re-downloading.

Fair call with FLAC but as you pointed out for the size he may as well dl .wav - sorry, just shit-stirring. OGG-Theora really should've beaten .webm (googlecode) for youtube's html5 but it seems not.
mplayer doesn't play webm naitivley and even totem needs to be patched.
Again - shit-stirring - no offense meant.

Well, I kinda started the shit-stirring with my unconstructive, agenda laden comment. So, sorry. The album is on the playlist, comments will follow.

ringo: ogg-theora was very likely only free and open because it never got widespread. If it had taken off a huge number of companies would have stepped in with their patents and demanded big piles of cash. Same was being planned for web-m, which is probably why google has utterly failed to take it anywhere.

I'm not saying that's a good thing, but that's the way it is. If you want a new standard you have to get the shitty license agreements done beforehand, otherwise instead of a cheap license at the start you get fucked for infringement once it's widespread and pay a shitload in license fees and a shitload in fines and a shitload in legal fees.

Back on topic: nice tracks. I've listened to a few while working. Not entirely the kind of thing I'm into, but still good.

Comments, as promised. There are a couple of good moments throughout the album but it wasn't strong enough as a whole to be a keeper for me. Introvertion was my favorite track.

I don't have much music in FLAC, but most of that are speedcore.

It's funny -- in my circle of friends and acquaintances, the only people who are dedicated to FLAC in a hardcore way are Linux-nerds which never listens to music and certainly don't make any. :)

99,9% of the population doesn't hear the difference between a >= 256kBps MP3, OGG or FLAC anyway.
Plus they have shitty speakers or crappy headphones or smartphone mono-speakers on a subway or crappy amplifiers connected to laptop soundcard. People are stupid.

Ah. And the album is soso. I liked one or two tracks, but meh...

gloom: that said, if i buy an album from bandcamp, i do get flac if possible.

The few actual chiptunes in this EP are quite annoying. The e-pop tunes are quite nice though. :)

+ loudness war/crappy mixing/mastering/bad ears (/older age) etc pp., although FLAC/APE are useful for archiving, I guess.

It's totally worth getting lossless - think back ten years or so, people thought 128kbit mp3 was the dogs bollocks and made a decent music collection possible on the little HDDs we had back then. Now we think it sounds pretty shit and isn't worth the few MB saved.

In 10 years we'll think anything other than lossless sounds shit, and the space needed for a big collection will be negligible.

So do your future self a favour and get lossless now so you don't have to upgrade everything :)

but then 44.1Khz 16bits will sound so lame ;)
you'll want 256Khz at 32bits or something
added on the 2012-03-31 00:02:23 by xernobyl xernobyl
Maybe so :) But I do know that from all the first lot of mp3s I downloaded, the nasty 128kbit (or worse! I have some at 96kbit!) are the ones I'm most desperate to replace.
