When reading this, my thought was it's some kind of anti-piracy thing.

PS Nick, you never replied to the message I sent about a potential product mention in the news section.

Anti piracy. How so? It's strange you should say that because it would appear that properly processed/mastered audio seems to fare better - which means pirated stuff has a better chance of sounding good, which is a strange way to combat it.

(sorry about the mail - can you resend?)

Since there's ways to download the videos off Youtube, the bad audio quality would discourage people from downloading copyrighted videos. It might also discourage people from putting the stuff on there in the first place.

The other item was submitted through the SS online contact form page.

As far as I am concerned YouTube is a new audio effects processor. I am going to have to upload some drum samples and make a YouTube Bogus Compression Pack.

Any requests?

Sure u can rip vids from youtube, but audio is so bad anyway being mono and a very low bitrate/khz rate it's not gonna affect audio sales anyway, so to ruin it even further is very silly. There's a lot of audio producers out there that like to get their work heard (as a promo as it were) to help with audio sales. Doing this to the audio has done them no favours.
