Thread: best MP3 settings

best MP3 settings
same 5 songs converted from WAV to MP3 using:
CBR128kbs - 25.5mb
Medium - 23.8
VBR4 - 28.3
VBR5 - 23.2
VBR6 - 21.6
Using VBR9 sound quality was worst as khz was 24 instead of 44; VBR7, khz32, quality improved.
Thus khz is more important than kbps. Correct?
VBR6 is acceptable, 44khz, kbps ranged from 80 to 192.
VBR5 sounded like CBR128 but smaller file size, 1/12 of WAV, is the best choice.
A)Why is 0 best, 9 worst? Logic 9 is highest, why backwards?
B)Why allow user to set min&max bit rates if using VBR?
C)Why is 128k Tape Quality on some MP3 apps, on others CD quality?
D)Why is setting to below 112kbs and keeping 44khz not allowed?
E)Is it better to make MP3s from ripped WAVs or from CDs?

E) technically speaking, there should be no difference if the ripped wav is 'ripped' from a CD, and into a 16bit 44.1Khz file.◄ it is what it is ►

If you 'rip' a CD (which by default is a wav @16/44.1) and make it a wav file @ 16/44.1, technically there should be no difference. In my experience though, it depends on the app used to rip it. Studio One (pro D.A.W.) has the ability to do this and create an exact copy...◄ it is what it is ►
