    Add -q 0 (Very High quality) to the encoding of lame

    is it possible to add -q 0 ?

    currently it's only:



    which are equivalent I believe to:
    -h Same as -q 2. Recommended. (High Quality, Slow)
    -f Same as -q 7. Fast, ok quality (Fast)

    not sure about normal..

    would be good to have -q 0 as well, cheers.

    on the other note, would be good to see the actual switches which dbPowerAmp uses when converting to MP3 (Lame) and maybe ability to adjust them as well?

    We have the CLI Encoder if you wish to manually tweak Lame

    just tried this method (with bundled lame.exe from dbPowerAmp) - it works, but missing few things:

    1) proper progress on the encoding process (shows 100% and still doing smth)

    2) encoding process is 2x times slower than using built-in lame encoder

    adding the suggested option will give you one more happy user :D

    I have allot of power, I would like the ability to do -q 0 as well through the gui.

    I would love that setting as well!

    -v0+ is now an option with 3.99.3, another new feature that would be nice.

    I believe -V0+ is only an option with 3.99.3x, which is completely separate LAME code by a developer not on the LAME development team per http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/...3&*entry778153. In other words, if you used 3.99.3 and tried to use -v0+, the command would not execute.

    I found the developer's summary of his ABX results between the -v0+ using 3.99.3x and -v0 3.99.3 so incoherent that I question the robustness of 3.99.3x and his conclusion that 3.99.3x and -v0+ is better than using the -v0 with 3.99.3. That doesn't mean he's done bad work other than being incoherent, but I welcome a much more articulate description of actual ABX results.

    But a way within DMC to either use the default LAME.exe with the existing settings, with an option to specify a custom LAME.exe location and enter an command line to pass to that custom encoder would be nice. I realize we can use any encoder with CLI but I'd like to be able to use a custom LAME and still benefit from the excellent user friendliness of DMC's GUI.

    I agree that typing a command line into a dialog box would be ideal.

    If not that, in addition to the numerical value of the -q switch being selectable from a drop-down dialog, I'd like to see the -y switch added as an option, which limits high frequencies to 16.7 kHz for -v2 through -v0, thus allowing a higher overall bit rate combined with a high end filter.
