After importing a sound file, it's sonic characteristics are changed and the sound is not the same as the original. This leads to inconsistency. The sound is the same with Compression set 100.
Two Examples: [Link Removed] and [Link Removed]
This was reported and tested in 4.24.2 (CL-11100242). this was reproduced in 4.23.1 (CL-9631420) and Main 4.26 (CL-11459205).
Results: High Freq content seems lowered, sound seems distorted.
Expected: Sound sounds "the same", even when compressed.
