I decoded the lossyFLAC file to WAV with and without "--keep-foreign-metadata". Both files work fine with the plug-in.So I guess the problem seems to be with Winamp.Thanks for your help and sorry for the hustle.
I'll have a think and try to come up with a possible name for the parameter. .... oh - I would probably prefer -q 3.75 rather than -q 3.5 as the quality component of the preset.
Q0 -- zero - lower quality , high chance of artifactQ1 -- medium - medium quality, some chance of artifactQ2 -- portable / compact - high quality, normally transparent (with small risk of artifact)
Group 1 targeting at HQ lossy encoding, group 2 targeting at an efficient alternative to lossless.

... overall --altpreset has a positive effect - but is it for all samples ? ...
