which frontend to use with lame? a matter of taste.
where to get them? here!
I started this thread so that people can take a look at the masses of frontends, and maybe pick one out of the bunch.
Although I'm pretty new to this forum, I still hope it's gonna be useful. Of course, this is is just a collection of the good frontends I know of, more frontends and links are welcome...
I will take RazorLame as a start (as it is my favorite), then briefly describe the others.
this frontend has been around for some time now, made by Holger Dors. It's considered to be a stable, easy to use, nice looking gui (at least in my view )
features: encode, decode, commandline, histogram for abr and vbr, free chooseable settings for abr, free configurable low- and highpassfilter, easy present loading, ...it has just one failure: you can't tag your files.
get it here: http://www.dors.de/razorlame/index.php
there is even a better 'version' of this frontend:
basically, it is the same frontend, but compiled with lame 3.90.3, and has integrated alt standard presents, just chose the one you are familiar with (prob. aps).
recommended above the original RazorLame.
get it here: http://easylame.audiohq.de/ (down)
-then there's WinLame.
a nice frontend for both mp3 and ogg. easy to use, step by step, chose from different well tested presents.
get it here: http://winlame.sourceforge.net/
-LameBatch is also still around.
quite old, development has stopped, but still pretty good.
and you can eeaasily tag your files. no major disadvantages here. good frontend.

- All2Lame is pretty straight forward, it's simple and has all major needs. No mistake to give it a try.

Last but not least,
- LameDropXP. an ogg-like frontend, with roughly the same features.
get it here: http://www.rarewares.org/mp3.html (generally a good place to look for anything concerning encoding/decoding etc)
there are also some nice multi frontends available (that can use more encoders than just LAME):
Speek's Multi Frontend
then there are some good audio players out there that are able to encode to LAME:
- foobar2000. a very versatile audio player with loads of useful plugins. it allows to rip and encode to many codecs, including LAME MP3.
- newer versions of WinAmp (Pro) can also rip and encode to LAME MP3.
it's of course also possible to encode while ripping an audio-CD with any good ripper.
e.g. EAC, CDex, dMC or PlexTools
well that's it for now. I trust people are going to add some frontends here, as this is only my small world of frontends I consider worthy of posting here B)
don't take this as a full list, there are prob. many other frontends out there that deserve a try!
edit 2: corrected links
