I want to find out the average commandline of the MPC users, I expect it to be around 6.
The choices are the above HQ modes.
--standard = --quality 5
--xtreme = --quality 6
--insane = --quality 7
--braindead = --quality 8
If you use something else, please comment on what is used.
Examples:
--thumb
--radio
--quality 1-4.99
--quality 8.01-10
tweaked or bla. bla. wink.gif tongue.gif

I have recently converted from my heathen MP3 ways and have graced the MPC format biggrin.gif

I have never tried an ABX, but I think I will certainly try one in the near future once I have some free time. I am using --standard, and --xlevel since many of my encodes report internal clipping errors. So far I have one track that reported clipping with xlevel turned on, so I did it again using the recommended --scale.

Anyway, I am very satisfied with MPC. I didn't have any problems with --alt-preset fast standard on Lame, but I find that the Muse encoder is on average twice as fast as Lame with the settings I was using, and the files are 10-20% smaller.

Also, I must say that the APE2 format is far superior to the ID3v2 hack.

The one thing that is slowing me down from re-ripping my cds and using Muse is that I have a really great general-purpose plugin for WinAmp called EAR... it reads ID3 tags and displays the information in the MiniBrowser. The format of the output is customizeable using XML. It can display file information on MPC files (bitrate, streamversion, encoder, ...), and displays ID3v1, but doesn't support APE tags. So I have turned EAR off, and am slowly trying to get over it. Perhaps I will find a replacement in the future.

Just for anybody who is curious, I wrote a small software in C++ that creates a batch file for encoding ripped wavs. I originally wrote it for my Lame settings, called it Blame (batch lame) ... encoding settings are completely hardcoded, so if anybody wanted to use it, they would have to tinker with code and recompile.

The way it works is that you tell EAC to use a user-defined encoder, and pass the title, artist, album, year, and track information as command-line arguments. The program uses the arguments for several things... it finds and writes the file names using my naming convention, and also uses the encoder's built-in tagger. It generates a batch file which can be run later on. This is helpful because your cpu isn't being used to encode files while it is trying to rip cds. Also, it allows you to rip many cds during the day, then run a single batch file at night, requiring no extra work later on.

Today, I rewrote Blame so that it would encode mpc for me also, and named it Amuse (auto muse) ... heh i'm having fun with these names.
