Apple just released a new version of QuickTime (6.3) on both Windows and MacOS platforms. According to Apple's web site it contains an improved AAC encoder:

QuickTime 6.3

QUOTE
QuickTime 6.3 delivers extensive support for 3GPP, including video, audio, text, and native .3gp file format support. Because 3GPP is now a part of the core architecture of QuickTime, you can import, export, and play back .3gp files just as you do .mp4 and .mov files. The technologies in QuickTime 6.3 that provide these capabilities are newly enhanced MPEG-4 and H.263 video codecs, a newly enhanced AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) audio codec, a new AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) audio codec, a new 3G Text importer and exporter, and a new user-friendly 3GPP export dialog to aid in the creation of 3GPP-compliant files. This support is available via the QuickTime 3GPP Component.


It's time to test the new codec!

They claim VBR!

QUOTE
AAC is the new standard in professional audio. It provides more efficient compression than older formats such as MP3, yet delivers quality rivaling that of uncompressed CD audio. The newly enhanced QuickTime AAC codec builds upon new, state-of-the-art signal processing technology from Dolby Laboratories, and brings true variable bit rate (VBR) encoding to QuickTime.

The only settings choices are bit rate (8-320 kbits/sec) and encoding quality (good/better/best) and sample rate (44.1 khz, etc)
