winLAME is an easy to use encoder for many audio formats, including MP3, Opus, Ogg Vorbis and more. winLAME uses the LAME mp3 encoder.
winLAME lets you read in audio tracks from CDs or encode audio files from your hard drive. The intuitive wizard-style user interface makes it easy to set up encoding settings. Multicore CPUs are used to parallelize encoding tasks.
Starting from winLAME 2017 beta 1 there are two buttons "Send a Smile" and "Send a Frown" in winLAME where you can fill out a short 2-question survey. I collected all answers from the "beta 1" time frame and summarized them. Here are the Survey Results for winLAME 2017 beta 1.
Today I released another beta version of winLAME. This version only contains bug fixes and new encoder and decoder libraries. Note that from this version on, Windows XP is not a supported operating system anymore.
The following changes were made to winLAME:
Today I released a new version of winLAME. The new version has an all new user interface that makes it possible to use your multicore CPU to encode several files in parallel, called "Modern UI". The previously used wizard UI that is used in winLAME 2010 is still available and is called "Classic UI" now.
The new release also contains the newest encoder and decoder libraries, as well as many bug fixes over the old versions. Please check the "About" dialog in winLAME for the actual encoder versions contained in winLAME.
Note that this software is in beta status and may still contain bugs. You're welcome to test out the application and report errors! I plan to do a "beta 2" version in the next weeks, or when there is the need to fix some very nasty bugs.
