Question about the digital soundtrack

Postby andropovitch » Sat Feb 15, 2014 3:42 am

I don't know if this question has already been answered somewhere, but I was wondering if the digital soundtrack will be lossless or not.

If I remember correctly, there will be both a CD available and a digital download format. The CD will no doubt be 44.1kHz 16-bit.

So nothing is sure for the digital soundtrack quality ?

I thought the CD audio spec requires lossey compression.

CD audio is not compressed. It is digitized (as Gonga said, 44.1kHz 16-bit) and digitizing analog audio is lossy more or less by definition. But not in the sense that you think of when you talk about MP3.

Heck no CDs are pure digital audio!

That's why they invented MP3s cause a 600MB CD aren't easy to share!
