View Full Version : CLI help with LAME

01-17-2008, 04:56 PM
I need to generate MP3s encoded with LAME that have the following characteristics:

- 192 kbps encoding rate
- sample rate 44.1 khz
- Do not ad ID3 tags

The suggested command line to use is:

lame --silent --id3v1-only -mj --preset extreme -v -q 2 [WAV input file]

I translated this into the following API call:

dMC.Convert(sourceFile, destFile, "mp3 (Lame)",
"-b 192 -s 44.1 --silent --id3v1-only -mj --preset extreme -V 2 -q 2", "");

This generates an MP3 with the following attributes:

Sampling Rate: 44.1 khz
Sample Size: 16 bit
Bit Rate: 192 kbps
Audio Quality: High (Lossy)
Encoder: Lame 3.97
Encoder Settings: Constant Bit Rate 192 kbps
Contains: ID Tag [ID3v2.3 (ANSI)]

Can someone help with the command line to this method that will generate as VBR with no ID3 tags at 192k?

Thanks in advance.

If I may ask, why do you not want ID3 tags in the file?
Try the "ID Tag Update" DSP effect, as long as you have the PowerPack or higher, go to the Deletions Tab, and click "Delete All".

It's a requirement imposed by our content distributor.

Can you help with the CLI parameters?

Preset extreme is now -V 0 (that is a zero), but it is not 192KBpsit never has been, it is around 240Kbps.
