Samply.app - amazing site for sharing lossless streaming audio
« on: January 15, 2024, 06:54:54 PM »
I was just referred to this site by a member on GS Remote Possibilities and my mind is blown. This is easily the best solution I've seen for privately (or publicly) sharing audio files and getting feedback from clients or other musicians. Even at the free tier, you get 25 GB storage, lossless and gapless playback along with comments, versioning, and a host of other features.

https://samply.app/

Here's an example. This is a playlist of all of the stereo recording samples that used to appear on the DPA website before they "upgraded". Before you listen scroll all the way to the bottom and under Audio Options, Lossless Playback. (Paid tiers allow you to enable this by default for your recipients.)

This does look interesting and potentially very useful, thanks for the heads up!

In the same thread on Gearspace, another user just recommended this site for ABX testing. Not fully lossless as it converts WAV files to 16/48 FLAC. Apparently the developers are responsive so maybe they will offer 24bit in the future.

they seem to be brand new and responsive.  I signed up and they contacted me to see if I had any questions or issues.

I had the same experience. Really makes a great first impression when you have that personal contact.

^ Boosting this to the top. The more I use Samply, the more I love it. I'm never going back to sharing through Dropbox or Mega again!

Huh?

FLAC is "Free Lossless Audio Codec"
Dynamic range (after recording) of 16 bits is above the threshold of human distinction, once ear physiology and noise is accounted for.

"The difference between 16 and 24 bit depths is not the accuracy in the shape of a waveform, but the available limit before digital noise interferes with our signal"
https://www.soundguys.com/audio-bit-depth-explained-23706/

It seems that normalized, even 16bits is a little overkill.

But, yeah, I do listen at 24/96, even 24/192 fairly often.
I'm not sure I ever hear a difference.
Not as much a difference as Columbian Coffee to Ethiopian   ;)

Yeah I know all that stuff, just don't understand why you asked if someone was lying.

This has nothing at all to do with what's being discussed.

Right, I'm still on the "huh?" side of things. No idea what the meaning or context of those comments are.
