Lame Settings for Foobar Conversion, CBR 128

Hi there,

I am looking for the parameters for foobars Mp3 conversion within this settings:



I just want to create a CBR 128 lame profile (for car audio). (I dont't know if I have to use --replaygain.)

Can somebody help me out?

Thanks

I don't see anyone replying to your original wondering about the need for --noreplaygain. That command line parameter is there to make the encoding faster by preventing lame from computing a track gain for the file. If you don't care about ReplayGain, calculating the gain values is a waste of processing power. If you do care about ReplayGain, calculating only the track based values is most likely a waste of time. It's better to let foobar2000 calculate both track and album based values once encoding is done. And not only is foobar2000's scanner more optimized and faster, it also offers several advanced options people may like.

The -S is there also for performance reasons. It tells the encoder it doesn't need to waste any cycles printing progress/histograms to the non-existing console screen that no one can even see.

Thanks for the info.

Then I guess the only important part here:
Code: [Select]
-S --noreplaygain -b 128 - %d
is the "-b 128" right?

Well, some of those other parts are important as the conversion won't run without them. But, yes, you've got the idea.

The bitrate options are CBR, ABR (rarely used), and VBR:

For playback in the car, I typically encode to -V4.
