Is this mp3 sourced?

Please move it to Technobabble if thats where its supposed to be though. Anyways, in The Smashing Pumpkins hub, a compilation called The Hideout Compilation Two has been spreading in there. This is a Zwan comp. It was only released in MP3 at first, but now its showing up as flacs in the hub. According to Quinto (who released the comp. originally) he never seeded it in flacs, or gave the flacs to anyone. So I believe its mp3, but I would like one of the experts here to check the pictures I have.

Re: Is this mp3 sourced?

The FA looks very safe yet the spectral looks a little "iffy"... could you create a 2 or 4-second FLAC, put it in a .zip and attach it here, please? So far, this doesn't look mp3 to me.

Re: Is this mp3 sourced?

Yeah, going by the frequency analysis I'd say it is ok. But it probably really needs a listen. Is the compilation studio based?

No they are live tracks from The Hideout in Chicago.

To do this, can I convert the FLAC to wav, then cut it, then back to FLAC? I only know how to cut wavs.

Yeah, that's fine. With a sample I can get to the bottom of this tonight.

Re: Is this mp3 sourced?

This seems to be a good place to ask. Where might I find a working download for AnalFreq 1.80?

Re: Is this mp3 sourced?

Okay I just grabbed this sample from a random spot. If you need it from the beginning I can do that though.

Edit: Apparntly 266.3 KB is too big. I could send you it on AIM if you want. My name is Punkishlyevil. Also I could email you it.

I never could find one either, but if you follow this link to another message board, there is a link in the thread. Here is the thread: http://forums.netphoria.org/showthre...threadid=78180

The posters name is CoolAsIceCream and the post is the third last. I hope this helps.

It should work if you put it in a .zip then try to attach it... if not, I'll be home late this evening and will pm you with an email you can use... I can also be reached on AIM (ID fiveraliver) if you let me know when to be online.
