Remarks

The Lame's built-in preset used for MP3 encoding. Lame's presets are designed to provide the highest possible quality at both Variable Bitrates (VBR) and Constant Bitrate (CBR).

Supported values are the following:

Mnemonic Value

Numeric value

Meaning

MP3_PRESET_MEDIUM

0

This VBR preset should provide near transparency to most people on most music. The resulting bitrate should be in the 150-180kbps range, according to music complexity.

MP3_PRESET_STANDARD

1

This VBR preset should generally be transparent to most people on most music and is already quite high in quality. The resulting bitrate should be in the 170-210kbps range, according to music complexity.

MP3_PRESET_EXTREME

2

This VBR preset will provide slightly higher quality than the "standard" mode .The resulting bitrate should be in the 200-240kbps range, according to music complexity.

MP3_PRESET_INSANE

3

This CBR preset (320 kbps) will usually be overkill for most people and most situations, but if you must have the absolute highest quality with no regard to file size, this is the way to go. This preset is the highest preset quality available.

 

This property is used only if the EncodeFormats.FormatToUse property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_MP3 and the EncodeFormats.MP3.EncodeMode property is set to MP3_ENCODE_PRESETS
