|Description:||Lossless audio (de)compressor (3.6.1-1)|
Shorten is an established low complexity waveform coder. It is fast and has low memory usage and thus is suitable for stand alone or embedded operation for a wide range of audio-like signals. Shorten has two basic modes of operation: lossless: The decompressed file is exactly the same as the original. Typically a factor of two compression is obtained for 16 bit audio. lossy: The compression may be specified either in terms of an average number of bits per sample, or in terms of an acceptable (perceptually weighted) signal to noise ratio. Good quality is obtained at compression rates from 3:1 to 5:1 and thus it can be a good alternative to ADPCM. See also http://www.etree.org.
