I hadn't thought too much about what format the loops/sample sets would
be stored as yet, but Ogg FLAC sounds like a good way to go. It would
be lossless, and still give good compression. Otherwise, I suppose some
folks would prefer to post their work as Ogg Vorbis. This could be
arranged as well.
Something else I've been thinking about is a low-quality "preview" that
can work inside a browser, so folks can listen to the contents of a
loop before they download. This would be another good reason for a
dedicated client, since the preview function could be built-in. The
hard part would be generating the preview to begin with. Could this be
a server-side function (i.e., when you upload the file, it makes the
preview file as a 24kbps Ogg or somesuch)? Any thoughts?
