Sorry, I was not seriously asking. Just making light of the fact that a simple question with an obvious answer, generated three pages of replies! :lol:

Within MediaMonkey you can convert a song, and even set the new quality (kb/s). For example, I can take a song that is regularly 128 kb/s and change it to 320 kb/s, what I wanted to know is what exactly is this doing? The quality does not improve, but the file size does increase. Thanks
Its doing just what you said, making the file a larger size but with no increase in sound quality. You can never make a song sound better by converting it to a different format.

Wonder if Pena47 ever got his answer...
He answered his own question.

read it again. it says they don't work AS WELL AS meaning that plugin works better for me not that it works better then the others you mentioned. 8)


and what your saying to use puts the process on the computer cpu as it is playing the song. what i do is put it in the song file before it is played and has less of an impact on the cpu when playing.

A lot people like that while audiophiles don't.

you just don't get it though. those don't help with every part of the songs. you need to get in to the wave and edit it.

Lol! :-)

Gotta say I love binary stuff, you know: bits and bytes...DIGITAL ERA...and BTW...I think the explanation someone did referring to the copying machine was a good analogy!

by rovingcowboy » Tue Apr 22, 2008 6:40 pm

yes some things never change but in the case of that statement you qouted you got the first message i did of that,
look in later messages you will find one that some one had fully explained that reason and i had agreed with him, so that is not the same thought of mine anymore i just forget sometimes and post that in new replys. but it is do to some sort of codeing error not defrag.
