The compression algorithm used for encoding, frequency and quality of the file, and actual noise signature itself would throw this off. For example, a file with seven notes played in a period of 8 seconds will be larger than a file with one note played at the same volume for the same duration. Then take into account the bitrate, if there are ID3 tags or not, if there are compression comments embedded by the encoding software.... -- </Daniel P.
