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!

cd-rw.org is exactly right.  my distribution channels will only abide standards :-(

What MP3 "Councils" or ripping groups deem as acceptable are hardly standards. They are instead simply arbitrary decisions a group of ignorant people made without really understanding the basic concepts of the technology they were using.

Sorry if it may seem a little offensive to you, but I don't really understand the point in bothering with trying to find the highest quality settings when from the get go you are limited in what you can use by what these ignorant people are telling you is acceptable and what isn't, and that their decisions are not based in actual quality measurements.

It'd be much more worthwhile to encode for yourself than to worry about catering to the politics of the "scene".

As since the "scene" are basically a bunch of pirates, why should they be able to mandate anything? It's like being told you can only steal in certain ways. "Lift all the Tylenol you want, but don't touch the Pepto!!" rolleyes.gif
