In the mean time there is an MP3PRO (MPEG2 Layer 3) format on the market wich is much smaller than the MPEG1 Layer 3 format.
When will FMOD be compatible with this new MP3PRO Format?
I know the new format will function with the current version but I can’t use the better quality of the new format.
Best Regards, Tony

[url=http://mp3licensing.com/mp3/mp3pro.html:7t3yqte1]MP3 Pro[/url:7t3yqte1] are MPEG1 Layer 3 files with some advance psychoacoustics enhancement wich result in an accurate reproduction for low bitrate ( < 128 kbps ). The probleme with this format is that developpers must acquire a license or pay royalties. See [url=http://mp3licensing.com/royalty/software.html:7t3yqte1]here[/url:7t3yqte1] for more infos.
There was a listening test about a month a go which compares different codecs at 64kbps.
The results can be found here :
As you can see at the bottom, altough vorbis is doing very good, mp3pro is slightly better.
The small improvement at this bitrate probably isn’t worth the cost though.
