Batch Mp3 Concatenator :
Software to easily concatenate collections of mp3 files with the best quality and the smallest size, taking into account both the maximum required quality and the compatibility with the target player.
Uses the latest version of LAME, version 3.100, customly compiled to adapt to the in-use cpu, so that it can be used with cpus as old as the Pentium and Windows versions as old as Windows XP.
The program is profile based, to make it easier to use. Specifically, there are two main profiles, the Audiophile (bitrate 320kbps) and the on-the-go (bitrate 192kbps) ones, which are further subdivided in stereo or mono.
The encoding method for mp3 files can be chosen (abr, cbr, or vbr), so that one can choose whether to use the better encoding method in terms of both quality and file size (variable-bit-rate = vbr) or the most compatible one (constant-bit-rate = cbr).
The program is batch-based, meaning that as soon as the settings are chosen they can be applied to as many files as you which - you just have to let it process all of them.
Last but not least, the program does not require any installation - it is a portable one. Thus, it can be run from a pen drive.
