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

Disclaimer: This is completely unscientiffic and I don't recommend this setting to anyone!
I currently use --quality 5.6 and am thinking about adding --xlevel to that commandline. Why 5.6? That gives me filesizes in the middle of standard and xtreme (q5.5 is closer to standard). q5 is transparent to my ears (except 2nd_vent, but this info is close to irrelevant). I just felt that i could spend a little more bits to help me get that warm fuzzy feeling. I guess in such a situation others go ahead and use q10. I try smaller steps. The quality scale is real nice since I don't have to tweak the command line.
Again, I am aware that what I'm doing is not recommended, but hey, you asked for it.

Little anecdote: yesterday I encoded the Autechre Album "Confield". I thought: hehe, codec killer material! Took the track that seemed most difficult: "Pen Expers" and encoded with mpc q5, mp3 aps, ogg q6. I investigated the blips that sounded most wicked but I couldn't abx any of the encodes! I have lost some confidence in my ears but have gained trust using mpc. smile.gif

Thanks all who work so hard to tweak these formats! And thanks for that laugh Frank ("Most of the artists are trunca"). :rofl:
