Error message using presets
Hi Guys

I received errors when trying to use the follow, and I'm wondering what is wrong.  Firstly I am encoding lectures/sermons to be distributed on the net.  They need to be mp3 (too many people downloading won't know how to add a codec).  Using the preset -voice its too large (about double what I need).  So I searched and searched and found these thanks to JohnV:

Speech topichttp://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=3270&hl=speech

[span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%']24kbps speech:
--alt-preset cbr 24 -a --resample 22 --lowpass 7 -Z
16kbps speech:
-b 16 -a --resample 11 --lowpass 5 --athtype 2 -X3

Or better using abr
24kbps speech:
--alt-preset 24 -a --resample 22 --lowpass 7 -Z
16kbps speech:
--abr 16 -a --resample 11 --lowpass 5 --athtype 2 -X3[/span]

Initially I tried using razorlame and received this error.  It happens when using the commandline aswell:

[span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%']Command: E:\Program Files\Exact Audio Copy\lame.exe --alt-preset 24 -a --resample 22 --lowpass 7 -Z "E:\Documents and Settings\h\Desktop\Renovation 1.wav" "E:\Documents and Settings\h\Desktop\Renovation 1.mp3"
LAME version 3.90.3 MMX  (http://www.mp3dev.org/)
-- Compiled at http://www.hydrogenaudio.org
-- Check this website for up to date information on the --alt-presets
Error: The bitrate specified is out of the valid range for this preset
When using this mode you must enter a value between "80" and "320"
For further information try: "E:\Program Files\Exact Audio Copy\lame.exe --alt-preset help"
RazorLame encountered an unknown message from LAME while trying to encode "E:\Documents and Settings\h\Desktop\Renovation 1.wav"![/span]

Any pointers?  Did he presets change?  Should I use a different lame version?

THanks in advance,
HAmish

Update: It works with 3.96.1

I am worried that maybe some of the custom string is redundant.  Any ideas?

Does anyone else know how to correct the error message (or if it's necessary at all--the output files seem fine)?  I'm using the modified 3.90.3 version for the --alt-preset medium command, so I'd rather not update.
