hello gents,

me and a few guys are starting a little rip circle, and being the big techie, i've been placed in charge of finding our standard lame switches. we're using Lame3.90.2-ICL EXE. i think that's the best lame version out there. we were using --alt -preset cbr 192, but it's joint stereo. we need full stereo. i'd love suggestions, especially if anyone knows which switches some ripping groups use, because their files always sound boss. this is my latest switch test, any thoughts?

-b 192 -h -m s --nspsytune --athtype 2 --lowpass 16 --ns-bass -8 --scale 0.93

not exatly sure if that's the best switch, it sounds pretty good.

thanks in advance for all your help!

spicymeatball: I just checked your full list of posts, seeing you had only 7...

And it turns out that a year ago you were doing the same kind of questions...

The answer has not changed:

Joint-stereo in LAME is definitely better than Stereo. It is perfect. No problems at all. Period. Whoever tells you that Joint-Stereo is a problem in LAME has no idea what he is talking about, has not tested, and should not be considered reliable. Are you going to believe him or the guys that develop LAME? Who do you think knows better?

The idea that Joint-Stereo is bad started because years ago, there was a commercial encoder that had a major bug in the way it did Joint-Stereo. But that's not LAME, and it has nothing to do with it.

If you want the best quality at bitrates around 192, use just --alt-preset standard nothing else, nothing more. Yes, it is Joint-Stereo, yes, it is VBR, and yes, it is currently the BEST for that bitrate range in MP3. Those long command lines will only screw things up.

If you need to use CBR (why???), then the best is --alt-preset cbr 192. As above, nothing else, nothing more.

And all of this with Lame 3.90.2, nothing else, nothing more.
