  11. 17:52   NeuroWinter      
  12. 17:52   NeuroWinter     Hello and welcome to the What.CD interview process. My name is NeuroWinter and I will be conducting your interview today.  
  13. 17:52   NeuroWinter      
  14. 17:52   NeuroWinter     Remember that the interview can take up to 2 hours, so if you don't have time right now, please let me know and this won't be  
  15. 17:52   NeuroWinter     counted as a fail. If you leave during the interview, for any reason, you will fail. The penalty for failure is a 48 hour  
  16. 17:52   NeuroWinter     waiting period before you are able to sit the test again. You have 3 attempts to pass the interview, but after 3 failures  
  17. 17:52   NeuroWinter     you will not be admitted to What.CD via the interview process, but you can still be invited by a friend. I strongly suggest that
  18. 17:52   NeuroWinter     you study before this test. If you haven't yet, please leave and study here: http://www.whatinterviewprep.com/. If you have any  
  19. 17:52   NeuroWinter     questions about the interview, now is the best time to ask, and if you want to leave, please let me know.  
  20. 17:52   NeuroWinter     Otherwise please type my name "NeuroWinter".

  120. 18:12   AnAngryGoose    oh shit. Sorry, I wasn't sure between those two. Did i fail?
  121. 18:12   NeuroWinter     Nope!
  122. 18:12   NeuroWinter     ==================================
  123. 18:12   NeuroWinter     Section Four: Formats and Encoding
  124. 18:13   NeuroWinter     ==================================
  125. 18:13   NeuroWinter      
  126. 18:13   NeuroWinter     Please remember to number your answers and enter each answer on a different line.
  127. 18:13   NeuroWinter      
  128. 18:13   NeuroWinter     01. Describe a lossy codec.
  129. 18:13   NeuroWinter     02. Give me 2 examples of a lossy codec.
  130. 18:13   NeuroWinter     03. Describe a lossless codec.
  131. 18:13   NeuroWinter     04. Give me 2 examples of a lossless codec.
  132. 18:13   NeuroWinter     05. What is LAME?
  133. 18:13   NeuroWinter     06. What is the difference between CBR and VBR?
  134. 18:13   NeuroWinter     07. What is the difference between lossless and lossy codecs?
  135. 18:13   NeuroWinter      
  136. 18:13   NeuroWinter     Please say my name "NeuroWinter" once you have finished these questions.
  137. 18:13   AnAngryGoose    1) Always compressed, usually smallest file size
  138. 18:14   AnAngryGoose    1) can't be transcoded to lossless
  139. 18:14   AnAngryGoose    2) MP3, AAC
  140. 18:15   AnAngryGoose    3)it stores ALL recoreded data, doesn't remove anything like lossy does sometimes.
  141. 18:15   AnAngryGoose    3) usually 'best' sounding files
  142. 18:15   AnAngryGoose    4)WAV(uncompressed), FLAC(Compressed)
  143. 18:16   AnAngryGoose    5)LAME is an encoder that compresses any input file and converts it to mp3 format
  144. 18:17   AnAngryGoose    6)constant bit rate(CBR) means the user sets the bitrate for the LAME encode, which it tries to follow throughout. VBR(variable bit rate) means the bitrate can vary throughout but still requires the user to set it up initally
  145. 18:19   AnAngryGoose    7)Lossless records all original data, nothing is removed, better sounding, way bigger. (WAV, FLAC). Lossy is smaller because it removes some of the original data and compresses the original file down quite a bit
  146. 18:19   AnAngryGoose    NeuroWinter
  147. 18:21   NeuroWinter     Could you please give a more detailed explaination of VBR? How does the bitrate differ throughout the file? (which part would get more bits per second than average and which part would get fewer bits per second than average?).
  148. 18:23   AnAngryGoose    Silence gets much less bits allocated to it than loud or active audio
  149. 18:24   NeuroWinter     Could you also please give me a better explanation of a lossy codec?
  150. 18:24   AnAngryGoose    for VBR:The user sets a major preset, LAME tries to follow that preset, but it can vary throughout for silence and noise, loud v. soft, etc.
  151. 18:25   NeuroWinter     =============================
  152. 18:25   NeuroWinter     Section Five: Transcodes        
  153. 18:25   NeuroWinter     =============================
  154. 18:25   NeuroWinter     Firstly, please descibe what is a good transcode, and how does that differ from a bad one?
  155. 18:25   NeuroWinter      
  156. 18:25   NeuroWinter     For the following, please state whether or not the end result would be allowed on What.CD, and if not why.
  157. 18:25   NeuroWinter     01. CD -> MP3 V2 (VBR) -> MP3 V0 (VBR)
  158. 18:25   NeuroWinter     02. CD -> FLAC -> FLAC -> FLAC
  159. 18:25   NeuroWinter     03. CD -> MP3 192 (CBR) -> FLAC
  160. 18:25   NeuroWinter     04. CD -> MP3 320 (CBR) -> MP3 192 (CBR)
  161. 18:25   NeuroWinter     05. CD -> MP3 V0 (VBR) -> MP3 320 (CBR) -> MP3 V2 (VBR)
  162. 18:25   NeuroWinter     06. CD -> MP3 V2 (VBR) -> FLAC
  163. 18:25   NeuroWinter     07. CD -> MP3 320 (CBR) -> MP3 V0 (VBR)
  164. 18:25   NeuroWinter     08. CD -> MP3 V2 (VBR) -> MP3 320 (CBR)
  165. 18:25   NeuroWinter     09. CD -> MP3 320 (CBR) -> FLAC -> MP3 V0 (VBR)
  166. 18:25   NeuroWinter     10. CD -> MP3 V0 (VBR) -> FLAC
  167. 18:25   NeuroWinter     11. CD -> MP3 V2 (VBR) -> MP3 192 (CBR)
  168. 18:25   NeuroWinter     12. CD -> FLAC -> FLAC -> MP3 V0 (VBR)
  169. 18:25   NeuroWinter     13. CD -> FLAC -> FLAC -> MP3 V2 (VBR)
  170. 18:25   NeuroWinter     14. CD -> MP3 V2 (VBR) -> FLAC -> FLAC
  171. 18:25   NeuroWinter     15. CD -> FLAC -> FLAC
  172. 18:25   NeuroWinter     16. CD -> FLAC -> MP3 V2 (VBR)
  173. 18:25   AnAngryGoose    Lossy: A lot of the data is removed, ususally higher frequencies if i remember right, but sometimes it can compromise parts of the actual audio. Most of the silence is removed to save space.
  174. 18:25   NeuroWinter     17. CD -> FLAC -> MP3 192 (CBR)
  175. 18:25   NeuroWinter     18. CD -> MP3 V2 (VBR) -> FLAC -> MP3 192 (CBR)
  176. 18:25   NeuroWinter     19. CD -> FLAC -> FLAC -> MP3 320 (CBR)
  177. 18:25   NeuroWinter     20. CD -> MP3 192 (CBR) -> MP3 320 (CBR)
  178. 18:25   NeuroWinter      
  179. 18:25   NeuroWinter     Please say my name "NeuroWinter" when you have finished.
  180. 18:26   AnAngryGoose    1) yes
  181. 18:26   AnAngryGoose    2) yes
  182. 18:26   AnAngryGoose    3)no
  183. 18:26   AnAngryGoose    4)no
  184. 18:26   AnAngryGoose    5)no
  185. 18:26   AnAngryGoose    6)no
  186. 18:27   AnAngryGoose    7)no
  187. 18:28   AnAngryGoose    8)yes
  188. 18:28   AnAngryGoose    9)no
  189. 18:28   AnAngryGoose    10)no
  190. 18:28   AnAngryGoose    11)no
  191. 18:28   AnAngryGoose    12)no
  192. 18:29   AnAngryGoose    SHIT. 12) i mean yes
  193. 18:29   AnAngryGoose    13)yes
  194. 18:29   AnAngryGoose    14)yes
  195. 18:29   AnAngryGoose    15)yes
  196. 18:30   AnAngryGoose    16)yes
  197. 18:30   AnAngryGoose    17)yes
  198. 18:30   AnAngryGoose    18)no
  199. 18:30   AnAngryGoose    19)yes
  200. 18:31   AnAngryGoose    20)no
  201. 18:31   AnAngryGoose    NeuroWinter
  202. 18:31   AnAngryGoose    that was a lot haha
  203. 18:33   AnAngryGoose    I do know that the only things allowd here are lossless to lossless, and lossless to lossy. Never lossy to lossy
  204. 18:33   NeuroWinter     Sorry AnAngryGoose but I am going to have to fail you here, the main idea behind the transcode rule is there that there should only be one lossy step in the transcode chatin and it just be at the end
  205. 18:33   NeuroWinter     EG 1 should be no since there are 2 lossy steps
  206. 18:34   NeuroWinter     Also Q14 that should be no since there is a lossy step in it, but its not at the end
  207. 18:34   NeuroWinter     ===============================================
  208. 18:34   NeuroWinter     YOU HAVE FAILED THE INTERVIEW!
  209. 18:34   NeuroWinter     ===============================================
