I am impressed with a 64kbit/s stereo encoding done with fastencc.exe!
It seems at least as good for voice at that bit rate to some LAmE presets in mono.
Can fastencc.exe be set to encode to mono based upon one or both audio channels?
I am interested in speech, and mono is fine for my purposes and I don't have any bits to watse on stereo.

Try the following:

fastencc audio.wav audio.mp3 -dm -hq -br 64000


Warning: fastenc's high quality mode (-hq) is quite slow.
You can use -mq (medium quality) instead , but quality will suffer.
Normal quality mode (fast , no switch) NOT recommended , awful quality.

The -dm switch means "downmix stereo to mono"

A newer FhG encoder like those found in Cool Edit Pro 2 or Musicmatch Jukebox 7.x should be faster and deliver better quality than fastencc.exe (1.01 or 1.02)

Beware of Fastenc!

FhG stereo = LAME preset mono
FhG is using intensity stereo, not a true stereo

use something else like mp3PRO and OGG for 64 kbit/s

Agree smile.gif but......LAME handles pre-echo better than FhG, obviously!

A word of advice, though - for FastEncC in STEREO mode, always use medium quality as there is a stereo collapse bug.

For mono, high-quality is good.
