newbie questions regarding mp3 gain/mp3 quality please help 2002-07-04 06:09:14 Hello everyone. I have a few questions regarding mp3 gain/quality. What is clipping...I hear a lot of that on this forum. And how do I get a mp3 downloaded from a p2p program to have the same quality as a mp3 that I had converted from wav: for example: band/song title Hoobastank running away. I dowloaded one from the net off of winmx and I have the cd which i ripped the track and converted it into mp3. Both are 192 bps, but the one off the net has a crappier quality and is much lower in volume than the one from the cd. Why is that and is there any program i can use(preferably free) to make it better quality? Any replies are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
