BBB sound files ?

I saw that we can download the sound files of BBB, but what is a .flac file ?

Is that a multi track file ?

Is there anywhere a file with separated tracks (music/voice/effects etc…) ?

And was the sound added with the sequencer ?


The Xiph guys were interested in uncompressed media for testing their encoders (vorbis, theora and dirac) and were kind enough to host our files

.flac is a form of uncompressed, lossless, audio. Sort of like .wave.

Actually, you are partly right and partly wrong. FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) does use compression, it is lossless though. So the advantage over wave files is that FLAC files use less disk space while maintaining the sound’s fidelity.
