Take the two LAME versions: 3.90.3 and 3.96.1

Now I'm not going to ask which has been more tested -- the answer is simple. However, I would like to know why you personally choose 3.90.3 or 3.96.1

To me, it makes no difference but I grabbed 3.96.1, I'm too lazy to switch back, no problems here, I'm not too paranoid, and newer just sounds cooler (not to say its better).

Others? I know this thread sounds rather peculiar laugh.gif

What will stop you from being a "traditionalist" then?


Sorry, I meant to say I'm being conservative in my choice of lame version, at least for now. I've actually been thinking of switching to 3.96.1 when I came across some posts here saying it had a few problems with highly tonal music. Yes, I know that most people can't tell between 3.96.1 and 3.90.3 in most cases, but then about the same time excitement began bubbling over hereabouts with testing of the 3.97 alphas (not to mention the news about work being done on LAME 4). I gathered from the alpha testing thread that 3.97 looks quite promising and even trumps 3.96.1 in some cases (and 3.90.3 IIRC), so I've decided to wait for 3.97 instead. Actually, I can't wait to try it out, so I guess I'm not as hidebound as my post implied after all, because I do want LAME to get even better. smile.gif

3.97 won't be tested as much as 3.90.2 was. At some point, as many of us did, you will have to take a leap of faith.


It looks like many have indeed. I seem to be the only one who voted for the recommended version so far. tongue.gif

cheers
