|Hi, I will upload some more clips from a ten year old recording session in our former rehearsal room to my homepage soon. I would like to know what your preferences for the compression format and bitrate are, so I can choose the one that most users feel comfortable with.
I'm still on a slow modem dialup connection, so I like small bitrates like 64 kbps mp3PRO which result in file sizes around 2 MB for 4 minutes and take away less web space on the homepage server, too. But there are some really cheap internet service providers available now in Germany, so this problem is not as big as it used to be.
So please vote and maybe comment on the several options, too, e.g. if you don't know a format or if your audio player can handle it etc.
ZZee ya, Hans-Jürgen
