Hi there,
am completely new to this forum. I am huge music fan and trade a lot of boots from various bands. As I always want the best quality, I was wondering if somebody could tell me what the best mp3 format is. I use Wavelab 4.0 and have two choices: Lame or Fraunhofer (the last offering a lot more options as far as different compressions are concerned). What's better? And there are any upgrades available which ensure better quality - where can I find these upgrades?

Thanks for an answer!
Alex

LAME for bitrates above 128 kbps, Fraunhofer for bitrates under 128 kbps.

Oh, and please read the FAQs before posting. wink.gif

Edit: Why did you post in the "Upload" forum? The "MP3" forum would have been better.

and if you are trading, you might want to look at lossless (shorten/flac/etc).

most trading communities will not like you with your "inferior" mp3's ;P


later
