What d'u think about it? I'm nearly to get some progs
MusicMatch .. using MP3PRO settings.
Moved to HCPC room.
I use Exact Audio Copy to extract to WAV and, then, Monkey's Audio as a front end to LAME 3.92 to encode to MP3. All free and all 100% effective.
Exact Audio Copy and LAME (both are free). Configured with the help of this guide.
I've used CDEx to fill up my 20GB ipod really well - it even looks up track names in the free cddb....
I use EAC and Lame 3.92 with VBR using the setup as described in
Done 200 albums and use JMC Media Centre to maintain album playlists . ID3 tags etc.
Please don't tell me I've done it wrong...... !!!!!
EAC in .wav format then use razorlame to convert to VBR MP3's
EAC to wav and then Lame with razor front end to VBR
Some tracks i just leave as wav tho.. compression is bad mmkay
I dont know why everyone uses mp3 - I think that wma variable sounds much better - especially in the high end. Just my opinion though.
I use MP3 for my car - the head unit does not support WMA. Besides, I will choose public domain or open source over Micro$oft proprietary (sp?) anytime. Finally, although I do not condone copyright infringement, DRM is something that will inconvenience me as an honest user. I will not tie myself into something which enforces DRM.
For high end I generally use the CDs in my CD player but, on my PC, I use Monkey's Audio and winamp2 to play the APE files back. Half the size of WAV and guaranteed lossless (and reversible, so great for archiving.)
Now you know.
DRM is only an issue if you tick the box that enables it. Media player 9 also has a lossless codec which sounds great. When I said the high end I meant that one of the results of mp3 compression is that the bass end is exagerated and the hi end(treble hi hats etc) is distorted.
