Here are some links which you might find helpful. If you think
I've missed an important link, please feel free to mail me a suggestion,
and I'll consider to put it here as well.
To use RazorLame you'll need LAME! So head over and grab
a copy of the best free mp3 encoder currently available!
"The audio technology enthusiast's resource" is the slogan of HydrogenAudio,
and boy, do they mean it! Searching through the forums there you will find a plethora of information about audio technology in general and MP3 compression in particular.
TB2 is the site behind the man who made this incredible new look of the
RazorLame site. You should visit TB2 if you're
interested in Winamp skins,
and if you're looking for a cool guy
to make you a web site,
or a banner, go hire Taber. And oh,
btw, many thanks again, Taber!
- alternate CDFS
There's an alternate CDFS driver floating around which allows you to grab wave
files directly through the file system. Using this driver allows you to encode
directly from CD. However, this driver will not work with every system.
Note: I'm not the author of this driver and really don't know much about
it, so please don't send me mails asking me questions about it,
I don't know the answers! Sorry!
RazorBlade is the older brother of RazorLame; it's a front-end
for BladeEnc, another free mp3 encoder.
