Lame extreme command line for EAC ?
Hi

I'm currently rebuilding a system, but stupidly forgot to keep the command line for the Lame Extreme preset.

Can anyone give me it, so I can just paste in to the External Compression commandline field ?

EAC 0.99 prebeta 5
Lame 3.98.2

thanks

Hmm . I've tried inserting this into the default command line:

%l-V 5%l%h-V 2%h -V0 --vbr-new %s %d

Still encoding at 320.

Not really sure what I'm doing here I'm afraid ...

After dedicating 5 seconds to a search in HA:

--preset extreme or -V 0 (identical) is what you want

Yes I know that, but I'm not particularly skillful at commandline stuff.

Where exactly do i put "-V 0"

As you can see, I tried to put it just behind the vbr-new bit, but didn't work.

Should I keep the preceding commands ("%l-V 5%l%h-V 2%h") etc. ?

I'd be really grateful if someone could just post the exact commandline that I can just paste into the EAC field.

thanks again

I've now tried:

"%l-V 5%l%h-V 2%h --vbr-new -V 0 %s %d"

Still 320kbs (reported in FB2K).

Apologies for being thick here, but any further advice ?

Just put -V 0 %s %d in the command line.  Nothing more, nothing less.  That just worked for me with the latest version of EAC and Lame 3.98.2.

That seems to give more realistic results - although the average bitrate in FB2K is around 280, which is higher than I used to get with Extreme preset.

What does the default EAC commandline do then (%l-V 5%l%h-V 2%h --vbr-new) ?

PS I'm shocked by how much quicker this (now relatively old) E6600 is compared to retired P4 3.06 - CD extracted/compressed in no time at all !

Could it be earlier you used an older Lame version? V 0 = extreme preset and 280 kbps is rather normal for some music genres encoded with Lame v3.98.2.

Yes I was - average kbps was about 225. So the bitrate for this "preset" has increased then ?

Average is on non-HF noisey content. Try -V0 -Y
This will change HF behaviour for freq > 16khz

Also 3.98 vbr new produces larger files for some presets.

For the same album?

No

But the average kbps for an album (rock / electronica) before was always around 220-240

I also download stuff encoded at Lame Extreme (with older version of Lame) - these also come out at about 220-240.

Never 280

Can you tell exact LAME version and parameters?

Not really - it's AllofMP3 live online encoding and they don't state the exact version of Lame. Many options, but I've always used their Lame Extreme mode (stated as "approx 240 kbps - and this is indeed what I get, not approx. 280).

What about:

@Bodhi

--vbr-new is obsolete with LAME 3.98 and above.
lame -V 0

Hello again

I am trying to set up the latest version of EAC (again) on my Win XP / 7 computers.

I can't get that command line to work for Extreme preset - every time I try to close the compression options window it says there is an error !

Can someone advise please ?


thanks

There are new placeholders in EAC:

-V0 %source% will work, or:

-V0+ %source% if using "extended" LAME 3.99.5z.

Be sure to click "Add ID3 tag" box.
