Transcoding is the worst thing you could do. With transcoding you’ll even lose a substantial amount of quality if the output bitrate HIGHER. Try to find the original in a lossless format and re-encode it with smaller parameters.
So are you saying this program uses this “transcoding” and is not a good program to change .mp3 bitrates with?
It most certainly does.
I downloaded the program for some more info, and it just uses LAME v3.98.2 to re-encode the file, that’s all there is to this program. (the LAME executable is embedded in the program’s .exe and is extracted to your %temp% folder on execution).
