A Newbie Guide to MP3Key Tip:When encoding MP3s, the ideal goal is to get the file to sound the same as the original, which is known as transparency. Achieving this and keeping the file small is a tough combination. Fortunately, the fine people over at r3mix.net have been working and tweaking this for MONTHS and the fruits of their labor is in your hands, in the form of presets in LAME. Use “--alt-preset standard” for very high audio quality and “--alt-preset extreme” for archiving respectively.

Originally posted by Garf I think to this day he still promotes r3mix as the one true preset for high quality audio.
Undeniably improvements have been made by many people on the encoder since then, but the setting I'm using now is still as good for me as it was last year. imo 'perfect' and can't be beat in quality : size ratio as of yet, for me.

Garf wroteSo yes, the presets were developed there, but not by the 'r3mix.net' people
Originally posted by Pio2001 I've compiled the presets history as a collection of links. I've posted it both here and at R3mix.net.
Originally posted by dors BTW, Garf: we're not talking about measurable things here, we're talking about perceptual audio encoding, so YMMV!
Originally posted by dors Come on, it's his site, it's his setting, so he has absolutely every right to promote it. You're not buying everything you read on the internet as being the one and only truth, do you? Like, e.g., NeoAudio being "all new"?
Originally posted by dors Go show some tolerance, even if Roel wasn't the most diplomatic guy around. Show you can do better.
Originally posted by rjamorim Sorry, Dors, but you won't find tolerance here. I gave up searching long ago.
Originally posted by Garf The stake, or trial-by-water?
Originally posted by Dibrom R3mix.net is not about quality. It's not about objectivity. And despite it's banners which say the opposite, it's not about the search for the truth. It's about Roel and --r3mix. Always has been, and as far as I can tell, it always will be. I mean, come on, the site and the preset are even named after the guy here.. isn't that kind of an indication of what they're about?
