    Hey- anybody know about this?

    Shorten- a lossless digital audio distribution on the
    Internet.
    Winamp plays them with a plugin, so does Xmms for linux.

    Kinda cool, I suppose. I downloaded it, and 'compressed' a 34 MB 44.1/16 file into a 21 MB 'shn' file. There's bands like Dave Matthews, Grateful Dead,String Cheese- you know the one's that allow 'tapers', full concerts available via ftp.
    Like it says- it's not like mp3 where it effects the sound quality.
    I just thought it was kinda cool. Not much of a saving in the MB department, but it IS file compression, ala zip, and keeps the high quality audio.
    I suppose if you want to transfer several high Q tracks over the internet, this would be great. Better for collaberation than mp3, cause there's no loss in quality, no artifacts.

    Whadda think?
