Notice

Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

TVBR sometimes understates bitrate, too much, eg:  :-\

78kbps (TVBR -V91) vs 146kbps (CVBR -v192)
102kbps (TVBR -V91) vs 144kbps (CVBR -v192)
100kbps (TVBR -V91) vs 150kbps (CVBR -v192)
83kbps (TVBR -V91) vs 161kbps (CVBR -v192)
87kbps (TVBR -V91) vs 150kbps (CVBR -v192)

But sometimes it is overpriced, although this is not a problem. The average bitrate of CVBR is 10kbps higher.

like a any "t/vbr", the qaac is source depending. in my examples avarage bitrate V91 is 208.

I suggest that this is not a safety setting. No lower limit like with CVBR.

TVBR and CVBR have roughly the same quality as of 2012.

In my analysis in Audacity, at least with Green Day "Maria" I've found CVBR 320 encoded more information for the first some 4.5 seconds, and then switched to the equivalent TVBR (same samples). So there is a point where they can be the same (but not always). The model is a bit flawed too since 288 CBR delivers better fidelity than CVBR 256, IMO. It may be better than TVBR in some cases but historically CVBR has been about staying within range; it's much different from Opus's CVBR which is not nearly as good as VBR. The way I see it, in concept, TVBR is supposed to be the better choice with the higher bit rates if necessary but apparently it isn't.

If bitrate drops a lot, it only becomes a problem when you can hear something wrong on these low bitrate parts of the file. Otherwise it's only efficiency and that's a good thing.
