Re: best mp3 encoder with something better than a command line interface? Reply #25 – 2018-10-18 18:56:15 Quote from: BrilliantBob on 2018-10-18 18:30:35I think I was misunderstood... Excuse my french, but I am not a native english speaker. The improvement of the .mp3 encoded with the modified psy extended settings must be compared with the .mp3 encoded with the default settings (filters ON, no other psy settings only the default,...). At the bitrates you are using it won't be possible to have an improvement generally, so that won't work. Instead, you start with a sample where you can reliably detect a difference and then make adjustments until you cannot. Then you compare the encode you make to the original and try to show that it is now transparent. Quote from: BrilliantBob on 2018-10-18 18:30:35My goal is to tweak the lame settings, psy included, to obtain a mp3 file as close as possible with the original WAV, so that they can not feel any difference in ABX tests.At the bitrates you are using it is very unlikely you'll find many files with a difference that is detectable. Do you actually have one?
