Hi,

Like many people, I want to convert my Cd's collection into MP3 files, using the
Lame combining with the Razorlame GUI. But, before beginning, I ask myself
some questions; one of this is the following : has this a sense, when converting
Wav files previously extracted from a CD, to resampling the extracted files in
48 Hz in place of conserving them in their original 44,1 Khz?
Logically no, we cannot get more precision that this giving originnaly from the
CD; but, i try, and I obtain a file that has not the same frequencies response that
this obtained with conserving the original 44,1Khz sampling rate of the CD;
the difference is basically in middle and high frequencies though being soft.
Who can me explain that fact??

Thanks,

Deuterium

Who are we to say that resampling would make it sound worse? I think Deuterium is right, we should stop using all these arrogant presets. I suggest he start with my favorite command line for LAME: -b 32 --cbr -m s -q 9 -k

-b 32 : SACD is only 1 bit, and it sounds far better than 16 bit CDs, thus you clearly want to use the lowest bit rate.

--cbr : No annoying fluctuations in the bitrate that will otherwise comprimise the sound quality.

-m s : Mixing the left and right channels together? That can't possibly be good, so force stereo.

-q 9 : q for Quality, which we want lots of, thus the highest number.

-k : I can hear clearly up to 22 kHz, don't you dare filter out any of that music!

I find this greatly enhances the musicality in all cases.
