Hi Andy,

This is not quite correct.  The higher bit rate you go, the lower the
compression, not the higher.

All the best

Steve

Kevin -

Yes, I can see how this might be. The problem I think is that if I choose a 
higher bit rate from within the settings of Sound Taxi, the compression rate

is also increased. For example: It has a bit rate of 170, which is calls 
standard, then it goes up to 190 KBS which is says has a high compression 
rate, and then it goes to 220 KBS saying that is a very high compression 
rate. I was trying to get the best of all worlds, by not losing quality from

greater compression, and also not reducing the bit rate.

Does that make sense? -

Andy

| Hi Andy.

| Variable bitrate will depend on what the upper and lower limits are.  If
| your file was originally 192kbps and is now 155kbps, chances are that the
| lower limit is 128kbps and the upper 192kbps.  Effectively, you've reduced
| the quality of your music but ended up with a smaller file size.
