OK, I am new to the forums but not new to the world of Lame. I have a list of current Lame switches and presets but those don't really help me. I am running EAC with Lame 3.96.1 and have read that the general idea is that version 3.96.1 performs better at the lower bitrates than 3.90.3 I have all my music at the --alt-preset standard with Lame 3.96.1 but have a friend who wants some of my music. He doesn't want the music at the preset standard as he has a iPod mini, I also have a mini (as well as a 40GB) and a PSP and would like to keep some of these mp3 files with a lower bitrate. Anyways I have tried the following commands: --alt-preset medium, --alt-preset fast medium, --preset medium, --preset fast medium, --preset 160, and a longer command line that went something like -V3 --vbr-new -q0... I found that the longer command line works but alot of the frames are at the 112 and 96 kbps which is too low while any of the preset medium settings don't work. I want something that is 160 kbps VBR mp3 that won't go below 128 kbps unless there are long spots of silence (like between actual songs and the "hidden" songs). I notice that with aps durring the silent parts it will go down to 32 kbps which is fine. So I want something that is similar to a command line of --alt-preset fast medium that won't go below 128 kbps unless there are long spots of silence.

Thanks for the help.

My ISP is having trouble (Comcast) and I can only go to a few sites slower than a modem.

Thanks, the v4 works great. With bitrates below 128kbps, I can hear the distortion. Limiting the bitrate to 128kbps works.

Your imagination thinks that you are hearing something. But really, you probably do not hear any difference.
