Originally posted by Gabriel Honestly the change in msfix doesn't affect the bitrate that much.
But for the ath adjust, it's another thing. In some tracks ap standard uses about 30 kbps for this adjustment.
For the internal settings: yes, if you mean thanging the quantization on high ath adjustment levels or high ms values, probably it won't appear. Probably the only internal thing left which really does something is the different quantization on short and long.

So it seems to me that directly lowering the athadjust is a better way.
Btw the bit graph of encspot gives you a good visual idea of the athadjust effect.

Originally posted by Gabriel I have the feeling that -Y mainly reduces on electric guitar samples. Anyone found a non-guitar sample where it provides a significant bitrate reduction?I also posted the r3mix bitrates as a comparison. After all, replacing r3mix is perhaps possible, as it seems to be in the same bitrate range.
