Re: Unrealistic Flac compression

That is quite low, but no need to assume mp3. If the source material is a mono signal, bitrates this low can indeed happen with FLAC. In fact, if you take audio and go FLAC > MP3 > FLAC, the chances are that the second file will have almost identical bitrate as the first one....compressing to lossy formats and then back don't change the compression much.

I'd still like to see a spectral anlysis and frequency sweep plot, but I'm going to venture a guess that it's mono lossless rather than mp3...
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
