    Cool.
    I swear I don't see how the kid from my school got in. :sigh:
    This is the question which I got wrong:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    If transcoding and no more than one lossless to lossy encoding is permitted which of these transcodes are/is generally acceptable? Give only a YES or NO for each specified example.
    a. FLAC->WAV->APE
    b. V0->V1->V2
    c. MP3->AAC->128
    d. 320->256->192
    e. VBR->ABR->CBR
    f. WAV->ALAC->AAC
    g. MP3->APE->FLAC
    h. CDA->WAV->MP3
    i. MP3->WAV->CDA
    j. 320->WAV->FLAC
    k. CDA->V0->V1
    l. APE->FLAC->APE
    m. V0->WAV->CDA
    The only way to detect a transcode is to use something like Adobe Audition. I'd probably get that wrong as well, since I generally ripped directly from the CD to FLAC and occasionally to MP3 V0. I didn't bother with the other encodes.

    Invites are only open sporadically, so when they are, I'll send an invite to the e-mail you gave me.

    Email I gave you? :wtf?:
    They said you cannot convert lossy to lossy, so therefore, you must use lossless files to encode. Therefore, FLAC, APE etc. So, I don't see how I got it wrong. :sad:

    You sent me your hotmail address in a private message. Don't you remember? :laughing:

    Hah, how draconian of them to assume you'd know their rules? Converting a 320k MP3 to 192k was perfectly acceptable on What.cd when it was first opened. I'm supposing since they've clearly grown from last year they are now dictating that any re-encode must be sourced from a lossless medium. :laughing:

    How on earth were you able to store 1TB of FLAC audio, where did you even get the FLAC audio files to begin with?

    I have an external docking bay that plugs into my laptop via USB, where I can slot internal hard drives of up to four. At the time I had various 250 GB drives, and later one 500 GB one that I used to store everything. Nowadays I have four 1 TB drives. :laughing:

    I have a large CD collection (of around 800-1000) of mostly J-POP/ROCK albums that I've purchased (and still do). I ripped them personally off the disk as FLAC via a program called Max.

    I have only bought 1CD in my life and that was Nirvana - Smells like Teen Spirit when I was in year 5. :giggle:
    Oh right, so you transcode the files from a CD into FLAC?

    You don't really "transcode", as such, since technically you're not losing anything from FLAC. It's a lossless format after all.

    Yes, I'm rather sentimental and like to purchase vinyl/CD. As you probably know, obtaining FLAC is difficult unless you have access to somewhere like What.cd or Waffles. I'm an audiophile, Mccann, what can I say? :yep:

    One thing I will state, Mccann, about private torrent trackers, is that to maintain a healthy ratio, or more desirably, to upload a continued amount to keep yourself afloat, you will need to upload your own material. Of course many members survive from simply leeching and seeding, but due to the overwhelming amount of seeders on the tracker, that can be difficult at first. Once you gather a considerable amount of albums to seed, life becomes easier. :yep:

    Just don't get banned in the process. :laughing: I've encountered so many users that become excited with the amount of music available, leech plenty, fail to maintain their ratio and get kicked off within the week. :p:

    Public trackers are very different to private. Furthermore, like Oink, What.cd and Waffles are difficult to upload to. For instance, right now there's 768,782 seeders to 16,574 leechers on Waffles. Lastly, if you're seeding an album that's only 150 MB with 35 other people, when a leecher starts to download, you'll be competing with the other 35 for one person. Don't forget that many of the larger users also have seed boxes.

    See you Mccann. :wavey:
