Hey Labfans, today we are doing a very special series of threads that will help us evaluate encoding/decoding lossy media formats.
- We will use Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec to achieve this. The pluggin is one of a kind. It offers real-time streaming (and offline) of the most common lossy and lossless media formats.
- For more information visit :http://www.sonnoxplugins.com/pub/plugins/products/Pro-Codec-Product_Info.htm
- From A mixing/mastering perspective Fraunhofer is priceless, it can help us ‘bypass’ the format by mixing through it, at least to some degree that is.

AAC – LC – 320kbs
Splendid! Very little deformation
Here is a micro-scale
Almost none existent
Here we can see no additional harmonics, but rather a fundamental implementation looks strange. Percentage is splendid!
Excellent! As far as lossy media formats AAC takes the cake!
Personal Quote: Youtube natively converts any media that is uplaoded to AAC. More can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Youtube
