Originally posted by Garf The tuned 350kbps mode should be perfect on any music clip you throw at it, including preecho nasties. If it fails, you still get the no-good-money-back guarantee.
Originally posted by Dibrom Actually the last time I tried (which I believe was with the latest encoder currently available) the 350 mode, death2 still wasn't perfect (as in transparent) on pre-echo...If it'd be of any use, I could go back and try it again.

I just haven't tested it as much.
Originally posted by Volcano Hmmm? So there is a difference between the GT1 and GT2 160 modes?
Originally posted by Garf If you wish, be sure to use the GT2 version. The 'stock' 350kbps mode isn't very good relatively speaking.
If you still hear problems, and I can't, I'll try to catch you on IRC someday (but not soon, too much work) and uptune it so you can give immediate feedback.
Originally posted by GarfThe net effect is that GT2 files can come in about 5kbps smaller than GT1 files. I know of no audible quality differences between GT1 160kbps and GT2 160kbps, so you might was well take the extra 5kbps savings.
Edit: goofed up the gt2 160kbps commandline
