    And oh btw, I should add:

    There is no point in encoding above 128 kbps bitrate.
    Your home recording is not goign to have so much fidelity, that 128 kbps would make much difference from 320 kbps.

    + Since most of the recordings involve only guitars and vocals you may further reduce the bitrate to ~96.

    The only thing that would suffer are the hi-hats and cymbals. But of course, this is not a drums site, aint it?

    If you want to rip cd's to mp3/flac/lame/whatever... use Exact Audio Copy.

    Its the best ripper out there and plus its free.

    I record my songs in Creative Wave Studio in ".wav" format & then convert it into ".mp3" with Total Audio converter. There's a tremendous difference in size that from 40Mbs of Wav it drops down to 4Mbs of Mp3, but also the sound Quality worsens. I donot use any mixing softwares (for ex. FL Studio,etc. I just do live clear recording non-stop with my AHUJA UTP30 Mic).

    Freeware and Opensource MP3 Conversion Software

    hi.........

    All... i think the freeware and the open source solutions are the best.

    here is some alternatives -

    1. You can download lame.exe from lame's website(Remember it's command line tool !!), also you can find some front end over there. Download both of them in a directory and run the front end.

    2. Here is a Good resource please check this out :

    http://www.audiograbber.com-us.net/

    it is also uses lame encoder but it is closed source software(But Freeware :))..

    Best Regards

    for recording, vlc is the best tool, free too.

    media>convert/save

    just choose the input device as the mic and select on convert/save

    for ripping, windows media player or vlc

    Well I asked this to be made into sticky because back then ppl used to upload crap quality recordings in wave format.
    Used to take ages to download - and end result could've been achieved with low bitrate mp3 too.

    You know - they say - always try to see if the juice is worth the squeeze ...
