I have chosen RAR instead of flac or others for two reasons: first it allowed
me to put a text file together with the wav, second because RAR allows signed
archives: if a signed archive like that one unpacks, you can be statistically
certain that no byte is modified.
A lossless compression is not very useful if there are transmission errors :)

Furthermore that archive also has the recovery info, so you don't have to
download it again in case of small transmission errors: they get recovered.

<p>> anyway, that's a pretty effective benchmark track ...

And, has anybody listened to the problem of the first few seconds as documented
on the site at www.trombettworks.com/drumswork.php ?
Tell me that I'm not alone hearing it

I have added the Unrar for FreeBSD, MacOSX and Solaris8Sparc at the page.
I couldn't find any more unrars at the rarlab site. As far as people on other
platforms are concerned, well... I hope they have friends running some more
common platform :)
