Not gonna argue about it, but MP3 and Vorbis are BOTH lossy.

Monkey's Audio is completely lossless, so it sounds PERFECT.

However, Monkey's Audio uses a lot of space, so if you're concerned about hard drive usage (like me; mine has a 60 GB capacity and I've got 40.0 GB of space left), DO NOT USE MONKEY'S AUDIO.

I encode music to the .ogg formet at 128kbps, which makes the .ogg format a reasonable size and it still sounds good.

Do I make myself clear?

Hrm, I was under the impression that ogg was smaller because it was lossy, so logically MP3 would be larger for the opposite reason.

Oh well, that's what I get for not doing my homework first.

The smaller the .ogg file is (depending on how long the song lasts), the more lossy it is.

When it comes to game music, I prefer OGG format compressed at 128 kilobytes per second. I tested this - using both the Vorbis encoder as well as the LameMP3 encoder, I compressed track #23 (if I remember right) from the Mechwarrior 2 CD. The OGG came out around 100-some KB less. Not much normally, but a big difference in the longrun.

Maybe I'm just strange, but whenever I save something as empeethree, somewhere along the line a blank space is inserted at the start of the file, preventing it from looping properly. The other format has not exhibited that issue.

Go encode some sound source to: 1. 48kbps MP3, 2. 48kbps OGG. You'll hear the
difference.If you can hear that.

And if you are in need of a lossless audio encoder, see http://flac.sf.net,
though it only has a ratio of 0.6 (whereas MP3/OGG get near to 0.1).

Ogg Vorbis sounds better because it's *less* lossy than MP3, captain quickthinky :P

Only RA and WMA are more lossy.
