MP3pro

Apart from the cost of licensing etc, are there many reasons NOT to use mp3pro for low bitrate encodes?

PS, also has anyone fixed the mp3pro config in foobar yet?

I can encode mp3pro only with 22khz. Thats very negative. 
And I think that the resulting mp3 files are not gapless.

When I want low bitrates, I use ogg vorbis or nero he-aac.

Encoding yes, but playback is 44.1 Khz (SBR tool). Like HE-AAC (most often).

Accodring to this [a href="http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?act=ST&f=1&t=28353&hl=&view=findpost&p=245974]thread about low bitrate files[/url] the support of MP3pro (portable devices, software players, operation systems) still must be very low.

yeah, but all the small mp3pro files that i want to create would be stored on my pc so it really wouldnt matter. I like the SBR in mp3pro, but i can never get that working in aac

Indeed SBR and the more advanced low-bitrate features of Aac are amayzing methods how the ears get tricked out.
You should check the [a href="http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?act=SF&s=&f=54]AAC forum[/url] for specific help. The users there surely will be able to say if your encoder can create HE-Aac files (containing/using SBR).
