decided with the collector community like eight years ago that having lossless in the wild could lead to bootleg fraudsters and people getting ripped off. so they stay in the vault.

I was only joking, pal. I don't have any interest in it.

Would you transform that quality flac to mp3 320 kbps and share though? ^^ I think it's more important to have a good equipment to rip the cassette than if it's flac or mp3. Don't think there's a difference in sound at all between lossy and lossless with hose demos.

 

As I understand the Buddha promo tape you will rip it as quality flac you wont share it neither? :(

I would be ok with a good sounding 320 mp3 kbps though if someone has it. I only have 128 kbps mp3s of all this cassette releases

a.) no. b.) that is up to the owner of the promo tape.

Hey, just catching up with this thread. It was sold on here - Not sure if there were other offers, but I gave up a good chunk of change!

The tape is on its way to Davey now. As for sharing — Not trying to be a gatekeeper at all. Would suck for people to try and fake them, but suppose that's par for the course. And maybe not even likely. I definitely welcome any opinions on the sharing front.

i would recommend sharing only the mp3s widely. 320k for great listener quality, but still can't fake a bootleg tape with it.

I would greatly appreciate a rip of this. The mp3s I've had for the last 20 or so years are AWFUL quality.

that comment refers to if i had bought the tape myself. since i do not own the tape and am only ripping it, sharing the files (what, where, when, how) is completely up to the owner.

stop being so serious about this 

i'm just replying honestly for the thread as a whole. people are checking this thread for information. people want the tape. and it's coming. and the owner decides how it gets shared.

if you're nonobviously joking use an /s tag.

i'm not a humorless robot... i liked your quip about me being able to make fake tapes!

If the main reason with all those tapes is not sharing them in lossless format to prevent bootlegs (I can understand that), why not just rip it to flac or wav and then convert it to 320 kbps mp3 with lame and share the mp3.

Agreed. I think a lossless rip is what we all want 🙏 most of us have never had the chance to listen to any of the other demos in lossless quality (and probably never will lol 😔) but this time we have a real chance :) i don't want to sound mean but MP3s again would be more of the same thing with just a very slight quality increase 😕

Am I the only one that's happy that we're getting anything at all? Maybe I'm losing my hearing but 320kbps is near indistinguishable from lossless on my AKG K240s. Whatever Davey's rip sounds like I'm sure it will be leagues better than the existing rips that have been floating around for years regardless of lossless vs lossy compression.

EDIT: Proofreading my post it comes off a bit hostile which is not intentional, I'm just trying to get people to look on the bright side of things.
