The Rob Fantastic MP3 Encoder uses all the machines on your network to encode wav files to mp3 files. You can download it here. You can download the professional Fraunhofer codec here. Also, there's a NEW hacked version of the Fraunhofer codec that supports bitrates of up to 320kbits/sec (the old one did 256kbits/sec). You can get the hacked version here.
I don't recommend using the Fraunhofer codec with high bit
rates, though. It's very good at bitrates 128kbits and below, and
very bad at higher bit rates. According to this
excellent article on encoding engines, the LAME encoding
engine at 256kbits/sec is the best quality MP3 you can produce.
Blade is okay at 320 kbits as well. The LAME and Blade encoding
engines are included in the download, and are royalty free
To register your copy of the Rob Fantastic Encoder, you can pay by credit card or send Jeff email for the address to send $25 to. You will receive a registration code that you can use to unlock the full potential of the encoder.
New for Version 2.0:
Support for LAME Encoder
Fixed tiny static at beginning and end of MP3 when using Blade and LAME encoders.
Lots of bug fixes and better Windows NT/2000 support.
Thanks a lot to everybody that's registered the product. I really appreciate your support.
