Title: Need LAME 3.96.1 in 64 Bit version for windows
Post by: bruraschi on 2018-11-01 13:40:07
Is possible to compile lame 3.96.1 in a 64bit executable for windows using the source from sourceforge?
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lame/files/lame/3.96.1/

Someone has tried in the past?

Should work but why 3.96.1 and not the current 3.100? I really don't get this obsession with "old" versions.

Because 3.96.1 version is the best for making V5 V6 vbr quality and cleanest files, with major version i can't reach such "quality" for that "low" bitrate (110~130).

Someone is skilled with mingw64? How can i compile?
I have a mingw32 set-up to compile 32bit, but i can't understand how to use the 64bit version for compile lame...
I need 64bit because i use, also, xrecode 3 and the 32bit seems not work (produce only distortion noise).

Do you want a sample to hear?

Here, i catch some songs in 120~130 range, plus two songs that need more (encoded in abr mode 160kbps with tuned ath parameters) [Moderator Edit: Link Removed per TOS#9 (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,3974.html) - Clips were longer than 30 seconds]

With upper lame versions, or fhg (from CoolEdit to CS6) at the same bitrate the quality is much lower.

Do you just need the lame.exe? I'll see if I can compile one for you over the weekend.

Yes only lame.exe

I just checked an old drive and have a zip of 3.96.1 that I would've taken from Rarewares (http://www.rarewares.org/index.php). But it's obviously not a 64bit compile. I can always link it up if someone wanted it, but again, original 32bit compile.

If you only need lame.exe then your problem is not related to its bitness.

Rarewares has a link to a modified version that takes its arguments from a text file  (see the readme):

http://www.rarewares.org/files/mp3/lameexe3.96.1_MOD.zip

That version of lame is 15 years old though, and there were improvements afterwards so I probably wouldn't recommend it even if you managed to find some file where it works better.

Maybe it's worth reporting as a bug, then? Newer versions aren't supposed to become less efficient.

That borders hitsTOS 8 territory, doesn't it?

Or is it so old we shouldn't even bother?

You can try 3.100  with --vbr-old to mimmcik 3.96  :

lame -V5 --vbr-old sample-song.wav

When i remember right version 3.96 was really bad on many samples no matter what switches. 3.97 and 3.98 had many enhancements.
The test corpus of guruboolez was of good help back then.
Asking for 3.96 14 years later because of cleaner files must be a joke.

Here we go: lame-3.96.1-x64.exe (http://www.rarewares.org/files/mp3/lame-3.96.1-x64.rar)

Briefly checked, but I think it's OK.

It's not a joke, as long as I could I used the existing 32bit version. I understand that it is strange but on many low bitrate encodings, this version generates clean audio without artifacts. I'm sorry that the link with the sample has been moderated.

hi @john33
might i have the dll (64bit and 32bit) ?
i gave a look at rarewares , but i can't find 3.96.1 and  3.99.5 (both 64bit and 32bit)
i'm looking for the same reason low variable rate and low cbr
i'm looking for both , but i'm  worried to get some virus for windows

thanks john33

ps before xmass , i wanted buy a daw so i download 4 trial audio programs  , all updated and all come with lame 3.99.5 , even the last goldwave come with 3.99.5 , don't know why they prefer and old version

Hi @john33
i know it's late , i lost this topic
at   i have found  3.99.5 and is 3.96.1  lame-3.96.1-x64.rar   ?
http://www.rarewares.org/files/mp3/
many software don't use the last lame 3.100 , for example the last reaper release  i guess it uses 3.99.5.2.5

OK, these include the x64 executable and the dll. They are untested Intel compiles, so if you have a problem with them, please let me know.
