LAME MP3 encoder has no intensity stereo nor PNS ... and yet it's better than FAAC at 64-96 kbps. 
Actually, that may be true, faac-1.28 probably is slightly worse than lame @64-96 but what's the point to argue about such ancient versions.

Is the Command Line Switches changed in FAAC 1.29?
There were some changes recently.

General Audio / Re: Album Art Downloader XUI
Last post by Wallinder -
I've grown really fond of this wonderful application.  :-*

However, I recently did a reinstall of Windows 10 (Creators Update) and cannot start Album Art Downloader. I found this thread and I do not have Riva Tuner installed. I've installed "dotnetfx35setup.exe". Please help me.
Did AlbumArtDownloader produce an errorlog.txt in the program folder, or in %temp%\AAD_errorlog.txt ?

No, I'm afraid there's no errorlog in the program folder or in %temp%.

If I delete %appdata%\Local\AlbumArtDownloader I see the splash screen going through the scripts, shortly after it crashes.

Why LAME does not use bitrates 144 and 288kbps (CBR)?

I can't fin any mircometrical measurements of the laser engraving deepness in the laquer vs engraving speeds.
The lower the speed is, the higher is the light power transmitted to the laquer surface, the engraving contours are better defined and deeper... resulting in less reading errors.

Those actions are available directly in the context menu without entering the preset editor. I for one only go there when I need to edit things and if the dropdown auto-loaded the preset it would make the task much more tedious. The presets are generally identical apart from path info, so I make my difficult edits in one preset and then just overwrite the others and do slight path editing in them.

I don't have Sound Forge to check what kind of system you are talking about but I know I find it easier to hit Load button than to memorize the name of a preset.

The preset box is rather unusual among similar software. Being a combo-box that can be typed into, it cannot be unfolded by clicking anywhere but on the downarrow. The width of it is also quite small for a descriptive title. This issue is shared with the Converter dialog.

A better design in my opinion would the one used in Sound Forge. The listbox, stretching along the top edge of the dialog, is clickable in its entirety and loads the preset immediately in one click. Upon clicking the Save As button, a new small dialog pops up with a combo box where one can type a new name or select an existing one to be overwritten.

Maybe. Your comment just implied everyone uses this app like you do and you speak on behalf of everyone, who, more than likely all use this app in different ways. 

I've 2 presets for lossy and lossless media. Two different paths same title formatting, move all files, delete empty folders.

Keeping it simple and intuitive, like my initial suggestion.
