For multichannel content that would be nice. Currently I get around 40 kbit per channel, and that is too little. The same source with Ogg Vorbis q4 is around 380 kbit in total, and that's the quality I want. I could hear some artifacts, and that was on cheap speakers. I think with 320 kbit it should be fine, but 256 is too low IMHO. And imagine what happens with 7.2 audio sources...

With regard to 5.1 channel encodes. Have you tried using HE-AAC between 192Kbps and 256Kbps?

LoRd_MuldeR, for CD ripping you recommend CUE Tools, Does the program fre:ac is equivalent? Thanks.

Do I?

Actually I use Exact Audio Copy (EAC) when I need to rip one of my Audio-CD's.

Since I don't use fre:ac, so I cannot say much about it.

But since it's a fully-fledged audio converter, I guess you would use either LameXP or fre:ac. You probably wouldn't use fre:ac for ripping your Audio-CD just to convert with LameXP afterwards

Anyway, whether the "ripping" capabilities of fre:ac are on par with EAC, I have no idea...

Sorry for my confusion, it was EAC and not Cue Tools, lol.
Thanks for your reply LoRd_MuldeR.

I know this question is already out of the post, but someone will clarify whether fre:ac is usable as EAC or Cue Tools for CD ripping?

I don't know whether fre:ac uses any "external" program (or a specific library) for Audio CD ripping or whether it does this all by itself.

You probably want to ask the fre:ac author

If you want to extract also CDs scratched, those who are not in good condition recommend using programs like EAC, dBpoweramp and CUERipper to use secure mode to check and try to correct the errors and also extra verification by AccurateRip.
fre:ac would be more appropriate only for conversion between formats.

Sorry, usually I will upload a new test build before the previous test build has expired.

However, this week I have been on a business trip, so no access to my development machine, ultra-slow hotel Internet connection, and no time anyway.

New build will be available soon, but I'll need to catch a snatch of sleep now

Thanks very much for the RC3 version...

Did a couple of tests (still my old WinXP on a non-SSE2 CPU), and I found only one bug.

The latest LameXP.qaac-addin.2014-01-19.zip does not work with the current Apple Application Support version. The AAC encoder is simply not recognized. It is necessary to use a newer qaac.exe version in the LameXP folder, the version from this archive does work:
https://yadi.sk/d/IaHUQp7wen9uX

Otherwise no problems at all, special thanks for still supporting my CPU (of course still need to switch to 16 bit colors).

And even the patched SoX version with integrated DynamicAudioNormalizer does not require SSE2 (as opposed to the version which ships with DynamicAudioNormalizer), much appreciated...

I also like the revamped audio normalizing setup, the channel coupling option is much more intuitive than the former method.


Thanks again,
Cheers

Interesting

I had a quick look at QAAC changelog and could not find a change (since the 2014-12-25 build) that explicitly addresses Apple Application Support compatibility:
https://github.com/nu774/qaac/commits/master

Anyway, I can try to make a fresh QAAC build from Git Master and we can check if that helps.

BTW: What version of Apple Application Support are you using and how can I get it? What is the newest version that still works with "my" QAAC binary?

I used the current version 2.3.6 dated from 07.10.2014. I extracted it from the current QuickTime installer.

I normally do not use Apple Application Support because it is a little too snoopy for my taste. I use portable qaac versions instead like the one from my link. But for testing the latest LameXP version I cleaned up everything and installed the qaac addon and Apple Application Support exactly like explained in the manual. And I only got it to work after replacing qaac.exe with the newer version.

I tried with Apple Application Support version 3.1.2 (containing CoreAudioToolbox version 7.9.9.6) and it worked fine for me with latest QAAC Add-in for LameXP (2014-12-25)
Anyway, I am going to make a build of the the latest QAAC version now, just to be sure we aren't missing anything...
