Can someone tell me how to update this app to the latest version of LAME which is version 3.97b2?

I have the Unix Executable File of LAME version 3.9.7b2 and I dropped it in "/Applications/LameBrain 0.6.2b3 20040306/bin" but when I try to encode I get a error from LAMEBrain.

Thanks.

Why does this use LAME 3.95.1? I thought either 3.96.1 or 3.90.3 were the recommended versions

Works really well and has many options for quality. Great tool for transferring all my CD's to my mp3 player

its always nice to have a second app around to encode mp3's. I recently downloaded this because an ogg track refused to export on the itunes/quicktime engines and it is working like a gem =)
ease of use is ok, a newb might be confused, but it its got a quick learning curve =)

LAME brain is just that, LAME. It simply doesn't work. It just sits there and looks at me when I atttempt to rip the files. God only knows why. Can someone tell me what the magic trick is to get it to ACTUALLY rip a wav file?

I tried to convert .wma to .mp3, and all I got was noise. Why?

Since when was converting a Windows media file to MP3 available by anything on Mac? I dislike WinMedia to begin with but still, thats a new one to me.

um, since http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/14645 at least....

Um..."convert" is really not the right word...that seems to imply the new file is equivalent to the source in terms of quality. When you take one lossily compressed music file and submit it to a another method of lossy compression, expect degraded audio. This is called transcoding.

Encode from the most robust source you have available, typically the redbook cd audio ripped to uncompressed wav/aiff or Apple Lossless, and not mp3/wma/ogg/mp2/AAC/etc.

As a pro-audio engineer, I really dig this free mp3 encoding app. I use it to encode 16-bit/44.1 kHz mixes into mp3 for the web. It gives you a lot of control over the encoding settings, and works great. I have expensive pro software that offers nowhere near this level of tweaking. Thanks!
