    Rip and encode CD's as MP3 320 KBPS Rhythmbox

    Hello all. I am wondering if there is a way to rip a CD in Rhythmbox but encode the MP3 files using 320 kbps constant bit rate (CBR). Any suggestions?

    You have to go to Edit->Preferences->Music->Edit. Highlight CD Quality, MP3 and then choose Edit. In GStreamer pipelin you should have "audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc mode=0 vbr-quality=6 ! id3v2mux" I'm not sure which settings to edit, probably vbr-quality.

    Can anyone help and suggest what the new settings should be?

    What do you mean by "new" settings?

    If I wanted 320 kbps what would I change in the settings that were posted earlier in the thread?

    An earlier poster said that the vbr quality should be changed. Should I change the 6? If so what to?

    Cheers

    If you want a high quality rip (which it sounds like you do), use something else besides MP3 because its a lossy format no matter how high the bit rate is. Besides being lossy its also old and proprietary. FLAC would be a much better option because its a lossless format but is compressed (like a ZIP) so its smaller than the actual disc. Also its open source and free. It can be transcoded at any time to something else like an MP3 so an iPod can use it and the transode would be like it was coming from the original disc (since FLAC is lossless). Almost every audio player out there supports FLAC playback and most support FLAC ripping, even some portable players support FLAC.

    As for the MP3 ripping, VBR 0 would be the highest quality, close to CBR 320 kbps but with a slightly smaller file. Use "man" to get the manual pages for a command like "man lame" to get all the details. If you don't have lame already then install it with "sudo apt-get install lame" and FLAC with "sudo apt-get install flac" if you want to try that too. Cheers!

    you might want to get a faster cd drive, or just go into preferences and switch the sound quality

    What? Did you read the entire thread? Your post doesn't make any sense.

    Here is a thread with a few options listed.

    Here's what you should put

    Code:
    audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc bitrate=320 ! id3v2mux
    I recommend you use Sound Juicer though, here's a guide for 320 bitrate
