So You meant that I could play encoded MP3PRO encoded file BUT "but they will
sound like normal 64kbit/s MP3 files" ???

I do not understand all ?

Cause i'd like to use MP3PRO to gain in term of space, I want use some 8kb 8Hz Mono
file (only speech) to gain at 1:2 ratio as I read in some doc about MP3PRO , is this
possible ?

SO I think the better is to test and see the result myself it still possible to listen to the
MP3PRO encoded file ? and if the size gain is significant ?

Thanks at all
