Hello guys. I'm newbie in audio ripping, and I have a issue here:

I use Easy CD-DA Extractor, as software for ripping and converting my MP3s, because it uses latest LAME 0.99.5. But when I set my MP3 settings at VBR, I have only preset option (Quality Level 0, Quality Level 1, ......Quality Level 9). Until now I had used Switch Sound Converter (with LAME 0.82) and with it i was able to put a custom range at VBR (192kbps - 320kbps), and what I want now is to put the same custom setting on Easy CD-DA Extractor.
So my question is: It is LAME related (in this case version 0.99.5) or strictly to the software that uses LAME encoder.
And one more thing: with Easy CD-DA Extractor CBR encoding it's much slower than VBR encoding? It it normal? I thought that VBR uses more resources.

Thank you in advance,
Daniel.

A good pair of headphones is generally the best way to hear artifacts. Of course, in your case you will be comparing a 320 kbs cbr with a vbr transcode, so you won't know how either of them sounds compared to the lossless original.

Edit: Have you tried running any of your files through MP3 repacker to see how much space that would save? Maybe you don't need to reencode at all.

I don't trust so much that program. I've read about it.

You trust a lossy encoder to reasonably reencode from a lossy source, but you don't trust a program that simply removes wasted space without otherwise changing the contents? (shakes head)

I would really like to know where one can read about mp3packer and come away feeling it's not trustworthy. (If it's a file-sharing site, never mind; posting/asking about it would be a TOS #9 violation.)
