Reduce existing MP3 bit rate in iTunes
Authored by: mbanks on Feb 20, '03 12:25:36PM

Well, I'm kinda stoked about this. I've imported a lot of cassettes into aiff format and have been looking for a way to make these take up less space on my iPod without buying QT Pro (the only way I knew how and since I bought QT Pro5 just before 6 came out, I'm still bitter. :( ). Since they are just speech tapes, this is just the thing. Thx.

Reduce existing MP3 bit rate in iTunes

mp3's bit rates lower than 192k in joint stereo sound awful in my opinion.

of coures listening to an ipod on the bus or the tube there is so much background noise it does not matter but I often use my ipod line into my hi fi and therefore poor low bitrate sound 2 dimensional and are lacking in substance.

I used the free LAME itunes plugin and took my audio book/voice recordings down to 40kps mono. Sounds good and only about 20meg per hour. Saved a ton of space.
