Topic: Which audio formats does VDJ support?
Inviato Fri 27 Jan 06 @ 11:47 am
I really don't think WMA gives a better sound compression... anyway, VirtualDJ supports Mp3, wma, ogg, mp4, acc, cda, WAV and other audio formats... as well as MPEG-2, MPEG-1, VOB, DAT, DivX, AVI, WMV and other or future Video formats beacuse you can select the decoder you want to use in Audio or Video that is played in VirtualDJ.

For example i can play my first encoded ADPCM files, that files i encoded them before even the mp3 format existed, early 90's (windows 3.1 .../386 or 486 cpu), because adpcm codec is still part of windows xp..
And yes wma sound worst to my ears too compared to mp3.., don't believe micro$oft....

When using the trial I found out that it doesn´t handle MPC format. But from what you tell me, all I need is to install a MPC decoder and it will actually work? That´s very nice

The ONLY reason these sites sell their music in wma format is that wma is "designed" for thi$$...
DRM management and such..., while mp3 is an open format without any protection....
(and came after research)
24bit, and ..."other special effects and enhancements" is a joke when you rip your 16bit cd's.
Music is usually recorded in 24 bit novadays, but to "fit" to the old audio cd standard, the mastering engineer (if exist...) has to do the convertion to 16bit, and further compress the dynamic range to make it "hot"
Unless you encode original 24bit audio it's a waste to rip in 24 bit. (The only reason for this would be if you want to use it in production again or edit, then you''ll need the "extra" dynamic range, but then you have to use wav files for this and not a loosy format.)
So, you can't have true 24bit from 16bit, and you can't have 5.1 or 7.1 (thats 6 or 8 separate mono channels) from a stereo -2 channels- sound.
Is this clear ?

24 bits audio encoding implies DVD audio format Exclusively. This is in a 4.7GB DVD for AUDIO ONLY.
It sound perfect BUT you need a 24 bit soundcard, also it's better is your sample rate is in 96KHz or above (not 44KHz or 48KHz) and also use 5.1 or 7.1 channel to fully live an expirence in this audio format. Also notice that all the process must be follow in 24 bits and 96KHz (or 192KHz) in all audio process; in recording, mastering and in reproduction also. If you have a 16 bit CD in 44KHz and encode it to 24 bits and 192KHz, it will sound the same (or perhaps the original 16bits 44KHz sounds better than the other).
As Aposis said, it marketing now because we need more resources to take fully advantange of this technology.

What exactly do you mean by "can't get them working"? What happens when you try to play a karaoke file?
BTW the forum rules ask that you don't dig up threads over a year old. This one's twelve years old.
