itunes offers their mp3's at a rate of 128kbps.

divide the number above by 128kbps ( 128000 bits per second) and you get 11.025. so the mp3 is compressed at a ratio of about 11:1.
for every 11 bits of dynamic range, you are getting 1 bit back.

now do the opposite and divide 128000 by 1411200.
0.0907029.......
converting that into a percentage, we get about 9%. this is how much is left of the original audio at 128kbps.
so 91% of the audio signal has been removed from the original waveform.
the data is removed permanently, based on priority.
low priority to keep masked frequencies, and frequencies outside of 20Hz-20kHz (the range of human hearing).
highest priority to keep are frequencies from 1kHz- 4kHz (mid range).

Ive been aware of most of this ^ for some time now. Also with all the money apple is raking in from selling songs through iTunes for $0.99 they should of been using the .flac file format since day one, when they launched the iTunes store.

Heres a brief description of what .flac files are:


Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a popular file format for audio data compression. Being a lossless compression format, FLAC does not remove information from the audio stream, as do lossy compression formats such as MP3 and AAC.

Like other methods of compression, FLAC's main advantage is the reduction of bandwidth and/or storage requirements, but without sacrificing the integrity of the audio source. For example, a digital recording (such as a CD) encoded to FLAC maintains the quality of the audio perfectly. Audio sources encoded to FLAC are typically reduced in size 40 to 50 percent. FLAC is suitable for everyday playback and audio archival, with support for tagging, cover art and fast seeking. FLAC's open source royalty-free nature makes it well-supported by many software applications. FLAC playback support in portable audio devices and dedicated audio systems is growing.[1] Josh Coalson is the primary author of FLAC.

this is common knowledge, not the specifics, but the whole point of mp3's was to get rid of all the information that wasnt "essential".

part of why i actually buy music, an mp3 never sounds the same through decent equipment.

the only albums of floyd i've listened to are: piper, meddle, dark side, wish you were here.

my favorite is piper hands down. it expresses everything psychedelic in a perfect album package. the first time i listened to it by the time it got too intense (was very high) to the point i wanted to turn the album off it had ended. fucking awesome musical experience.

"The Dark Side Of The Moon", no doubt.. it was the album that put me on to Pink Floyd and I still count it one of the best albums i've heard, any genre. The production is amazing, and i think it was the first album that was like one big track (every song floats together). Just look at how "breathe" comes back 2.5 songs later at the end of "Time".. that is groundbreaking right there. Damn, haven't listened to it for at least a year now.

Ive been listening to 'Wish You Were Here" over the past few days at work, and its becoming clearer to me that it is much better than 'Dark Side of The Moon'.

i still like 'Dark Side of The Moon' a lot though.

The Wall is my favorite but they've put out alot of great music.

Still gotta check out their earliest stuff.


The Wall, the movie is great for acid trips, that shot with the cigarette in his hand made me think that time was on this crazy loop that was repeating itself, very thought provoking shit.

I like the music, and the lyrics of the song, and it goes really well with the theme of the album, but i dunno what it is about the vocals, they sound like they're sung out of gilmours nose or something.
