I'm using Nero AAC codec in Foobar 1.1.10. I converted the same source file to AAC using two different settings: q0.38 and q0.40. Theoretically, the q0.38 should have resulted in smaller file/lower bitrate. However, the resulting files were just the opposite - the q0.38 file ended up being larger / higher bit rate than the q0.40 file. How can that be?

I realize this is rather academic as nobody could potentially tell the two apart in ABX listening. I just found it a bit abnormal.

Where is the cutoff between LC and HE?
