I would always go for flac. But since the amiga CD32 wav files were heavily compressed in the first place (I believe the hardware could reproduce up to 8-bit, 28khz) my opinion is that the 192kbps lame mp3 would be sufficient for that bandwith. Also, the filesize would be significantly smaller.
Cheers!

P.S. I'm a sound designer... :)

Would you perhaps take the challenge? ;)

pogaduszki/zgaduj-zgadula-ktory-sampel-lejw-ktory-empetroja-t729.html

Check all folders here, and guess which 2 samples in which folder are the original WAV files.
Even you feel lucky you can even guess what's the quality in other folders... ]:->

Oh, and BTW: I'd rather prefer answers in PM's, so that you wouldn't spoil the fun for the others.

we picked mp3 192 kbp/s 48000 with dfx enchncement. they sounds just fine and takes less space.
we were thinking about releasing two kinds of cd32 exec's. first (standard) with mp3 sound and second (premium) with looseless audio. of course "premium" doesn't mean that u'll have to pay for that ;) they'll be free like others.
but, just like i said, we were "just" thinkin'

I suppose this way it'll keep everybody happy, and i'm sure when i last checked the poll was 50/50 for each format.

As long as you guys don't mind double the work creating 2 sets of exe's. :-)

FLAC all the way. The Internet is fast enough nowadays - no need to cripple audio quality to save space. There are some amazing CD32 soundtracks out there (Fire & Ice, Sleepwalker, Brian The Lion etc.). Keep up the great work!
