Hey, go buy a record...

by Chris Randall

Since Diamond Dave is planning to have my Creative Commons license revoked (!?!) I better release everything now! In that light, my latest as Micronaut is now available at shopPOSI. Pick up a copy, and you'll be enabling my snobby gear habit. Digital only release, $6.00 a throw.

Note that if you want an audio demonstration of Audio Damage products, there's no better way than to pick this album up. Other than the Eclipse and the usual Waves limiting products, every effect on this album came out of our shop.

As an aside, Chris, do you know what the settings are for the alt standard preset? I'm a command-line guy, so never really knew where to begin with the presets. I've been using"lame -m s -h --vbr-new -V 2" with near-perfect results, wonder if the preset is doing something better?

I don't know about your settings; we do it like this:


That gives you a VBR encoding centered at 192. This is the recommended setting by the LAME designers for the best possible ratio of size to quality. It's also what they use over at BLEEP, and if it can make an Autechre MP3 sound good, it's gonna be fine for almost any application.

You can use lame command line with --alt-preset-standard too, I recently did a mass encoding of about 100 audio files on my FreeBSD server using "lame -h --alt-preset standard". Syntax may be different on Windows.

Actually doing a quick search around, the standard preset is essentially the same as the above set of switches I use.
