View Full Version : A Suspicious Primus Show

2007-02-10, 02:16 AM
Hey all. Downloaded this Primus show a while back from another tracker. Just got around to looking at it and I believe it to be lossy. Lineage it came with says that its a 24bit Edirol R4 recording. It has a clean cut @<hidden> 16k with some spikes. Please let me know what you think. Thanks in advance.

The spikes may be from an analog dubbing after-the-fact at a higher recording bitrate that captured some harmonics from the aliasing being decoded or somthing lke that.

lossy without a doubt

spikes are probably clipping and/or extraction errors

seek thee a better source
