Default

sorry, i should have been more clear.

(assume now that it is a given that you want to transcode from mpc to mp3.)

i meant, start with your musepack files using default quality (q5 or --standard) THEN encode with lame.

if YOU detect a difference, and that difference is annoying to you, then scale to --xtreme ... --insane ... --braindead ... etc

also, i'd avoid lame at cbr256. use preset (medium and standard) vbr with a max and min bitrate.



later
