Subject: FW: [motm] [Semi-OT] MP3ing MOTM music

From: "Tkacs, Ken" <ken.tkacs@...>

This is an interesting question. I myself have found that, if I create an
MP3 from a CD, it sounds pretty decent. If I take one of my ∗own∗ tracks,
I'm not at all happy with the sound.

I can't tell if that's because: a) I'm more critical of my own work's sound;
b) my music isn't pop, but more textural, and details count; or, c) I don't
know what I'm doing with the encoder.

I usually have to crank the "quality" level on the compressor way up,
creating files too large to post on my web site, whereas with other music,
I'm satified at middle-quality settings.

I'd like to hear other opinions on this, too.

Anyway - How close do your MP3s sound to what you think of as your
"real" track?
