LAME 3.92: --alt-preset standard or --r3mix?


Which compression setting is best for LAME 3.92: --alt-preset standard or --r3mix?

I’m currently using --r3mix because it uses VBR and achieves a good ratio compression/quality.

–alt-preset standard

I believe that even the r3mix guy recommends this setting now (although for some reason it is still --r3mix on the site).

Check out this site.

alt preset standard is also VBR, but it is at the code level, instead of a mix of settings that may not always work harmoniously.

I had to re-encode my older lame --r3mix encoded mp3s after finding out.:frowning:
