Originally posted by HansHeijden There's a good reason to stay below 16 kHz at 128 k, because at this bitrate nspsytune's default -X1 doesn't encode > 16 kHz well, if at all. It tends to be smeared as well, though I don't recall on what samples. Encoding above 16 kHz is too ambitious period!
At 320k I noticed the use of both -X3 and -Z. Can you explain why the -Z as well? Unlike the combination with -X1, it does not make much difference to me.
I heard that you probably lowered the --ns-bass -8 value in the 128k preset. Clips like 41_30sec, spahm, youcantdothat etc rumble more than they already did. The -8 shall not be touched! :mad:
It would be nice to know where you transition to nssafejoint, -X3 etc.
Originally posted by HansHeijden Indeed --ns-bass takes away a few bits from the highs, but to my taste tackling the rumble is priority. In time, you may hear it more and more easily, because it's an unusual sounding artifact. While we hear HF artifacts immediately by now!
The lowpass table looks better now (except at 128 k ), but I think there's a little error. At 256k you mention 20500 Hz, but that will give the same filter as 20000 Hz. The next one available is at 21000 Hz.
Forgot to ask, but I suppose you drop the --ns-bass at the same point where -X3 comes in?

Also, a quite note about the --ns-bass stuff... if you are using Dmitry's compile, it only has the first set of modification I made included in it, <skip>His compile came just a little bit too early.<skip>Edit2: I take that back, smpman's compile isn't up to date yet either (no ns-bass tunings). Looks like one more day..
Originally posted by jord Secondly, user, Dibrom, are you planning to update the recommended Lame settings of this thread with the new --alt -preset options?
Originally posted by SNYder why is every settin on this list still in the --dm format.i thought it changed to --altand --alt-normal replaced the old --dm-standard.what's the deal?
Originally posted by Somebody As far as I know, the alt presets have not been submitted officially.This would be why.
