I've been using a combination of methods and it seems to work pretty well. I use PCDJ to scan the files and calculate the BPM then I load it up in WinAMP and count for 15 seconds then multiply by 4. If it's pretty close I just round the PCDJ calculation to the nearest whole number and store that in ...

"Best" File Naming Convention

I'm looking for some opinions on file naming conventions... I used to name everything "[Artist] - Album\[Artist] - Track". If it's a compilation album I would just leave Artist out so it would be "[] - Album\[Artist] - Track" which would put all the compilation albums together and at the top which w...

Hmmm... you make some good points for VBR High... especially on older recordings. Why waste all that space? :p Well would VBR High Stereo or Joint Stereo be better? I noticed you said you used Joint Stereo. Is there a reason you chose one over the other? I want to make sure it sounds the most like t...

I ripped an entire album into all three formats. Here is the space savings for VBR if I had 100 or 500 copies of that particular album. I was bored so I made a small spreadsheet. lol QTY 256kbps 320kbps VBR (High) 1 110,357KB 137,822KB 103,661KB 100 11,035,700KB 13,782,200KB 10,366,100KB 500 55,178,...

Thanks. I think I'm going to go with 256kbps but would still be interested in hearing other opinions.

"Best" bitrate to use? (128-320kbps)

I'm getting ready to rip and encode my collection of swing CDs to DJ off of. Up until now I've been encoding all my music at 128kbps/joint stereo but now that I'm DJing I've been thinking about encoding all the new stuff at a higher bitrate. I know all about ripping and everything... just wondering ...
