Originally posted by RD ok, i take you words to mean go with alpha7 then...But you say " If you don't mind the higher bitrate of xtreme though, maybe --dm-preset standard -Z would be the best bet. "Does this mean --dm-preset standar -Z has advantages over xtreme? and is larger than xtreme?If so what advantages?Thanks,RDPS looked at lame --longhelp |moreand -Z says toggles the scalefac feature on/offadding -Z is increasing the bitrate but what is scalefac all about...sorry last question then i'll (Try) to leave you alone about lame....
Originally posted by RDBtw the way is your alpha 6 compile stable? or do you recommend i use the --dm-preset insane contained in lame 3.90 alpha7... this version of lame is bundled in win32lame1.7 and some say it is very stable for an alpha....but is it (do you think) more stable and better to use than your compile?
Originally posted by Cloun Hi Diprom,where could I find which settings does the --dm-preset includes.Thanx, Cloun
Originally posted by RDIt was the xtreme preset that I was interested in.... Now while we are on the topic of xtreme: (1) I take it that you do not regard xtreme as being as "experimental" as insane, correct? Xtreme, then, has proven itself to you, or do you still recommend the use of standard over xtreme? (2) what is better: -------------------------- (A) standard with -Z or (B) xtreme without -Z
Posted by r3mix: If you upsample a 44.1kHz to 48kHz then for the same "amount" of music, there will be more samples, which will allow the encoder to encode with a 9% shorter eacho reaction. So at any decent (let's assume +128kbit/s) bitrate upsampling to 48kHz will lower the chance of echo problems with (48000/44100-1)*100 % but given only a very few people already heard it it will make both a very significant difference to those and it'll fix the echo problem altogetherPosted by TrNSZ: It's best to use the SSRC resampler to resample to 48/24 without dithering before encoding to MP3. I have a batch file (lamefr.cmd) which I use as a front-end for LAME in CDex or EAC. It currently contains:@ECHO OFFssrc --rate 48000 --bits 24 --twopass --dither 0 %1 C:Tempssrc.wavlame390a7 --dm-preset xtreme --scale 0.96 C:Tempssrc.wav %2del c:tempssrc.wav
