Hi Billy

Kevin has answered far better than I could but just one small thing you may have not picked up on. MP3 is a compressed file and the bit rate the degree of compression. Therefore the lower the number the tighter the compression is. Originally discovered when researching for the development of the DVD the MP3 is a method of storing more data on a disc. So a low rate will give a vast amount onto a disc but at a fall off of reproduction quality.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

Hi Billy.

Bitrate dictates the quality of the file. The higher the bitrate, the higher the quality. The quality can be defined, if you like, by how spacious the sound is and how much high and low frequencies, treble and bass, are preserved.

As Roger has said, for music, the minimum would be 192kbps to get anything like listenable. Personally, I use variable bitrates for MP3 between 128kbps and 320kbps and choose the highest quality setting. With variable bitrate, the encoder decides how many bits are needed for each frame of the file on an individual basis. A frame is around 0.02 seconds of sound in an MP3 file. The files are bigger but sound about as good as MP3 can get.

For audio books, 64kbps or 96kbps should be perfectly adequate.

Regards.

Kevin

Roger,

Can you please explain this, it's all new to me.

I'm converting for audio books in the ogg format to mp3.

Could you please explain bit rate ETC,
Billy

Hi Billy

It depends on the content of the files. Music I'd never go below 192 but books I'd do at 64. Documents I'd leave at 32.

Hi Billy.

Here's an e-mail I sent to another list concerning the use of goldwave's batch converter function.
Hi.

You can use goldwave to convert your files as follows:

1.  Start goldwave.
2.  Press alt + F to open the file menu.
3.  Press the letter B to open the batch conversion dialogue.
4. Press tab until you reach the Add Folder button and press spacebar to
activate it.
5.  Tab to the browse button and press spacebar to activate it.
6. Now tab to the folder list and locate your folder containing your OGG
files by using the up and down arrows and the right arrow key to open
folders.
7. Tab to OK and press spacebar when you've opened the folder your files
reside in.
8. Tab through the remaining options selecting the file type you wish to
include in the conversion and checking the checkbox to include all
subfolders if your music is in subfolders.
9. Press spacebar when you reach the OK button and you're now returned to
the conversion dialogue.
10. Tab until you reach the checkbox that says something like "Convert to
this format" and press spacebar to check it.
11.  Tab into the file types box and select your output choice.
12. Tab to the attributes list and select your bitrate and encoding method
from the list.
13. Tab to the Begin button and press spacebar to start the conversion. 14. When the resulting combo box displays, choose your speed setting from maximum, high, medium or low. The slower the speed, the more you're able to
use your computer while the conversion runs.
15. When the conversion is completed, you'll see a dialogue confirming the conversion has completed successfully or telling you the number of errors
and warnings encountered.

Regards.

Kevin
