What is mp3PRO?
mp3PRO is an audio compression algorithm (or codec) that combines the MP3 audio
format with spectral band replication compression methods. It claims to achieve
transparency at lower bitrates than MP3, resulting in a file nearly half the size
of standard MP3. RCA was the only company to offer portable players compatible
with mp3PRO, but they have dropped support for the format.
Any mp3 player can play mp3PRO files but they will be played at half the intended
sample rate. To play mp3PRO files with the full sample rate in Microsoft Windows,
users are required to install additional software. This additional software can
be a player such as Musicmatch Jukebox or Thomson Demo mp3PRO Player, or a plug-in
for an existing audio player. Optical disc authoring software such as Nero Burning
ROM includes mp3PRO support as well. For Macintosh computers, the now-discontinued
Audion shareware supports both real-time mp3PRO encoding and decoding.
What is MP3?
MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, more commonly referred to as MP3, is a digital audio encoding
format using a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for
consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard encoding for the transfer
and playback of music on digital audio players. MP3's use of a lossy compression
algorithm is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent
the audio recording and still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original
uncompressed audio for most listeners, but is not considered high fidelity audio
by audiophiles. An MP3 file that is created using the mid-range bit rate setting
of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is typically about 1/10th the size of
the CD file created from the original audio source. An MP3 file can also be constructed
at higher or lower bit rates, with higher or lower resulting quality. The compression
works by reducing accuracy of certain parts of sound that are deemed beyond the
auditory resolution ability of most people. This method is commonly referred to
as perceptual coding. It internally provides a representation of sound within
a short term time/frequency analysis window, by using psychoacoustic models to
discard or reduce precision of components less audible to human hearing, and recording
the remaining information in an efficient manner. This is relatively similar to
the principles used by JPEG, an image compression format.
