Excuse me, this is my first topic in any forum, so if i write here something what shouldnt be here, just tell me.
I was searching on this forum, before i wrote this, but i didnt find anything exact and definite. So there is my question:

What commands should i use in the newest recommended LAME (3.97b2) to get the highest quality possible regardless of filesize or time taken for encoding?

I want to know how will disabling psytunning affect the sound, all the switches that change psy-model and what does mean --ns-bass x and --ns-treble etc... And what the settings can be used to ensure least artifacts? You know all those samples: trumpet, hihat, applaud ...

I know, that this everything is already posted here somewhere, but id like to make it be all in one thread. Dont you think its not a bad idea? Or if such a thread already somewhere here is, than pls write a link.

Excuse my English, im from CZ...

Good. I trust the new -V 1 setting and i want to ask about what the changes makes the new vbr method. In the recommended settings for lame page is written that it is faster (of course) and that it might be better in quality, but some artifacts have been reported. Can somebody tell me, please:
1) If I want realy very good quality and i dont fear new features, is it good to use new vbr algorithm?

and
2) How can i use the new presets in EAC? Theres only bitrate setting and additional swithes field. Why does the bitrate setting has to be there? I want to use presets, no cbr or those vbr settings listed there.

Thanks

You might want to try using -V 2 --vbr-new as it is generally the recomended solution for CD transparency. I don't know about the file size differences between -V 2 and -V 1 for anything other than music that falls in the metal category. For example, I encoded the In Flames track "Take This Life" and -V 1 took up 1.5MB more than -V 2. This might not seem like a lot but I have approximately 5000 songs in my library. This would mean that my library would take up an additional 7.5GB when going from -V 2 to -V 1. If you don't care about that extra space then you can use -V 1 but I recomend doing some ABX tests (like every one else is saying) because I doubt you will hear a difference from -V 2 and the original lossless file.

As for the presets in EAC, I can answer that one. Kinda ignore the bitrate settings, just make sure that 128kbps is selected. Then put this in the additional switches field: -V 2 --vbr-new
You can change -V 2 --vbr-new to -V 1 --vbr-new if you want. The only thing you will have to change is the -V X value where X represents a number ranging from 9 to 0 where 0 gives you the highest VBR bitrates.
