Just decided to give MO3 a go... a shareware game I'm going to make music for is going to use MO3 format for its music. I tested the MO3 encoder with one of my songs, which had loads of 44100Hz stereo samples and was 8 Mb in size. The file size dropped down to 998kb. Impressive!
However, there is one problem: whenever I listen to the original song, or the encoded song, within the MO3 encoder, I hear really nasty crackling. :-/
It kind of sounded like clipping, so I thought it was due to too high global volume, but reducing the song's volume didn't help at all. In ModPlug Tracker the music sounds fine.
Has anyone else encountered this?
