LAME developers do not distribute binaries either. For approximately the same reasons.
But I've heard it's not too hard to build.
it seems that HE-AACv2 and Opus are the best candidates
If I were you, I'd just use Opus.

An option to skip everything in %album% name after '(' and '[' characters would be killer
Album autoclean probably does something similar, but it seems to be working for some, but not for others.

I'm still using my HD 580s after more than 10 years, and have replaced all the pads exactly once, and the cables several times. They're plugged into my Blue Yeti microphone, and I keep forgetting to turn off the microphone monitoring.

I wanted to add a new shortcut to my button bar, in this case "Quick convert panel"

Unfortunately, the button does not start an option. The same option available from the context menu works fine

Can you check if this is a bug in the program ?

foobar2000 v1.4 beta 11
Windows 8.1 Pro

First! You must create your conversion preset eg Mp3 VBR 192 kbps and save the preset! 
Second - or create shortcut for last used preset and this thing start working.

I'm trying to fit music into an old phone with low space, and it seems that HE-AACv2 and Opus are the best candidates.
I'm new to encoding aac, so I searched a lot and didn't find the fdk aac encoder for windows, just a lot of source code for android.
Also, I know there are other aac encoders like nero and apple but I want to stick to something free/open source.
