    Bug in both Music Converter and Batch Converter

    Hi,
    Today I tried this app, trying to see how is working. I tested only on 1 flac and I found this bug:
    I tried to convert a flac file to mp3 320 CBR (with mp3 lame, settings "-b 320 -q 0 --noreplaygain"), the resulted mp3 file is showing in Mediainfo this:

    Code:
    Audio
    Format                                   : MPEG Audio
    Format version                           : Version 1
    Format profile                           : Layer 3
    Format settings                          : Joint stereo
    Duration                                 : 3 min 38 s
    Bit rate mode                            : Constant
    Bit rate                                 : [COLOR="*FF0000"]320 kb/s[/COLOR]
    Channel(s)                               : 2 channels
    Sampling rate                            : 44.1 kHz
    Frame rate                               : 38.281 FPS (1152 SPF)
    Compression mode                         : Lossy
    Stream size                              : 8.34 MiB (99%)
    Writing library                          : LAME3.100
    Encoding settings                        : [COLOR="*FF0000"]-m j -V 4 -q 0 -lowpass 20.5[/COLOR]
    What is this? Anyone can reproduce this bug. So the bit rate is CBR 320 kb/s, "achieved" with those encoding VBR settings? Tried to see where it may bring, of course encoding with the displayed VBR settings creates a 256 kb/s mp3, smaller in size anyway.

    Is this known bug or is only me?

    Thanks

    No where in our program do we have lowpass:

    Encoding settings : [COLOR="*FF0000"]-m j -V 4 -q 0 -lowpass 20.5[/COLOR]

    Also if you hold the mouse over the file, dBpoweramp will show the encoder settings
