256kbps files command line in fb2k?

Does anybody know how to create 256kbs equivalent files with lame3100m in foobar2000? I came up with this command line for 320kbps-equivalent files:

Quote
-S --noreplaygain -V0 --cvbr 0 - %d

I'm guessing the -cvbr switch has something to do with it? The help file doesn't make it clear at all.

-S --noreplaygain -b256 -q0 - %d
-cvbr... in lame... where? and, yes, -V0 NOT 320-eqv, but ~270-280kbps.

Keep in mind, I'm talking about halb27's version, 3100m. Not the standard version.

You should be aware that lame 3.100m ( https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,103431.msg850346.html#msg850346 ) is not based on the current lame 3.100 ( https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,114777.0.html ) , and that halb continued development of the 3.99.5 mod to 3.99.5o ( https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,112036.50.html ).

As for the exact meaning of the -cvbr parameter, you have some info in the file 3100ldoc.rtf.
Basically it is less likely to go down in bitrate than it is to go up.

As for how to get a lower bitrate, you should realize that you are asking the encoder to encode in variable bitrate, and it's basically the place where this modification has been improved. Targeting a fixed CBR is out of the equation.
Either increase the value of V ( V1, V2...) to reduce the average bitrate from the one you're getting, or simply use standard lame without -V ( like m14u suggested)

Sorry, wasn't paying attention. In my defense, i'm not a coprologist and I don't know anything about varieties of $hug.  O:)

or use --abr, that, in my opinion, unfairly forgotten.

Huh. Didn't know that. I guess it's back to lame3995o. Anyway, I'll screw around with lame3100m and try to get it to work. Thanks for the info guys.

BTW: Heard about halb27's health situation. Hope he's feeling better.
