In actual practice, this reservoir is not a IT-SC 41 separate storage space in the file, but rather the "empty space" left over in frames where the necessary information was encoded into the available space with room to spare. In other words, the byte reservoir is a portion of the algorithm designed to rob Peter and pay Paul. While the CD and DAT audio formats typically offer 16 bits of resolution, the processing of a very complex musical passage may result in only four or six bits of resolution being encoded into the final bitstream,[11] since there isn't enough storage space allocated to handle the data needs of each frame.

In other words, a 128 kbps stereo MP3 is equivalent in size and quality to two separate 64 kbps mono files. However, a 128 kbps stereo file will enjoy better quality than two separate 64 kbps mono files, since in a stereo file, bits will be allocated according to the complexity of the channels. In a given time, one channel may utilize 60% of the bits while the other uses only 40%. The cumulative size in bits will, however, remain constant. 1 CBR vs. VBR Most of the information you'll read in this book and elsewhere assumes that the bitstream is being encoded at a constant bitrate (CBR).

Just beyond the realms of light and sound are sub- and ultrasonic vibration, the infrared and ultraviolet light spectra, and zillions of other frequencies imperceptible to humans (such as radio and microwave). Our sense organs are tuned only to very narrow bandwidths of vibration in the overall picture. In fact, even our own musical instruments create many vibrational frequencies that are imperceptible to our ears. [1] While hearing capacities vary from one individual to the next, it's generally true that humans perceive midrange frequencies more strongly than high and low frequencies,[2] and that sensitivity to higher frequencies diminishes with age and prolonged exposure to loud volumes.
