In my experience, mono files don't need extra swithes for extra bitrate-savings, i.e. adding --mx xx (ex. --ms 10) will not save some kbps on _mono_ files, but you could possibly save a few kbps by downmixing a 2-channel mono wav, to a 1-channel mono wav, before encoding to musepack. Musepack itself has no switch for downmixing to mono.

As for using --ltq 2xx, expect about 5% larger filesizes in general, IIRC.

Cheers,

Tim
