LAMEst question ever on HA? Maybe. But this is one of those little things that has been bugging me for quite some time now. Is it officially caps or not caps? Does it matter?

Honestly, I'll be shocked if this hasn't been covered before.

As you can read in the List of recommended LAME settings, --alt-preset standard is no longer there.
The current equivalent is -V 2 or -V 2 --vbr-new

HAH! Thanks, but I knew that. I was just satisfying my curiosity about the abbreviation. You know some of us still have directories with APS in the name. wink.gif

I just refer to it as -Vx (--vbr-new) now, since alt is deprecated, and PS doesn't sound so great. tongue.gif

It's still there, but it's deprecated, and mapped to regular presets now.

LOL. I think I must have not conveyed the point of my question well enough. I know about the new VBR system, and I do use 3.97 beta 2.

I'm just curious whether APS in lowercase or uppercase letters was ever considered standard for communication purposes. Does that make sense? I don't actually use "--alt-preset standard" anymore.

Sadly cd ripping apps still use the old --preset names when using lame_enc.dll.

And to answer the question I always thought of it as APS, but didn't really give a hoot if someone posted it in caps or lowercase. When it was the --preset names not to long ago I always tagged my mp3's with like this: EAC (SM)/LAME 3.9x (APS)

Sadly enough, I know I've thought about this at some time or another. It's an acronym, so go with APS.

It's not an acronym; it's an initialism.

Wow. Thanks, NeoRenegade. Now I just learned something else.

And for the record, I think I'm going with "APS". wink.gif
