    Option to show and set lame command line for encoding

    I am getting particular about how I encode files to mp3, particularly now as I am encoding sound for distribution to others.

    I find I'm using the lame command line instead of my paid for dbpoweramp because I am unsure what extra switches dbpoweramp is giving to lame.

    e.g. Could something like the following happen?
    lame --preset extreme -h -b 112 -V 4 -B 220 fred.wav fred.mp3?

    I'd like an option to show the lame command line being used for encoding, so I know what I'm getting.

    I'd also like the option to just set my own command line switches, with no switches coming from dbpoweramp (e.g. --preset fast extreme). I'd like dbpoweramp to remember my commad lines and for it to be able to remeber this setting and use it by default for the next encode.

    That way I can keep the convenience of point & shoot and a progress bar, and still have the confidence & control in the encoding.

    Thanks! :D

    p.s.
    My dbpoweramp uses --alt-preset for extreme, insane, etc.
    In lame 3.96.1 alt preset has been deprecated, and these setting are now used directly with --preset.

    For example, I used the "voice" preset with dbpoweramp, which should produce a 56kbps ABR file.

    Instead I got a 127kbps VBR encoding (this is not 128, not a typo).

    How did this happen?

      You can use dMC to encode to mp3 without using any presets. So then you can chose whatever settings you want.

        a) dBpowerAMP uses LAME 3.96 by default, not the latest version of the encoder. This is why it does not come out with the presets you expect.

        b) You can set up LAME to use a command line encoder separately. Personally, I use the Generic CLI Codec (from Codec Central) in order to configure LAME 3.97b2. The Generic CLI codec lets you pass any commandline you like to a specified encoder. It's very simple.

          Your wish had been granted before you wished it :smile2:

          No temp file needed with that baby

          ps. -B 220 doesn't exist, it will be either ignored or changed to 192 or 224.
