Eac+lame: Vbr

Can someone please tell me how i turn off VBR in EAC (using LAME encoder)…

The programming FAQ on the lame site is like Chinese to me :x.



P.S.: please don’t tell me VBR will give you better quality, I just need to turn it off :(.

Compression Options->External Compression

Select the bit rate you want from the drop down selector box marked ‘Bit Rate’


Ahh thanks and sorry for not using the search because i found this :o .

This is what you need to do :
get the latest version of eac and lame(DUH!)

Then unzip the lame 3.92 in a dir(i put mine in my program files)then you have the folder/dir lame 3.92.

Now start up EAC insert a cd and hit F11

Choose external compression mark the choose extrernal program to compression,Parameter passing scheme LAME MP ENCODER
choose : Program including Path , used for compresson`s browse select there the lame 3.92.exe(its in the dir of lame from the zip you just inzupped remember)thats all

Then under that you see : in addition command line options a lot of strange characters remove them all make the whole line empty!!

Then choose your bitrate and quality press ok and this should rip your mp3z on a constant bit rate like you desired. [/B]

Hi again,

glad you got it sorted.

Here’s an excellent site that’ll really help if you get stuck (check out the rest of the forums -especially MPC ;)).



Thanks :).

This board ain’t bad :p.
