The file formats supported by winLAME are WAV, OGG, WMA, MPG, M3U, CUE, COV and many others.
Working with winLAME is fast and simple as the program supports batch processing and it allows you to preview songs using a built-in music player.
winLAME provides several output modules you can select from, such as the LAME MP3 Encoder
, the Opus Encoder
. the OGG Vorbis Encoder, the Wave Output and the Windows Media Audio Encoder.
Of course, you can select the desired output folder and you can determine winLAME to delete the original tracks when encoding is completed, to overwrite existing files and to perform several tasks after finishing encoding.
Other assets of winLAME are the small size, the detailed HTML help file, the easy install and uninstall process (winLAME is in fact portable) and the modular, multi-channel architecture.
No encoder is complete without sound quality settings and winLAME is no exception from the rule. You can adjust encoding quality settings such as bitrate and quality level.
The last version of winLAME is 2017 beta 2 and it featured the following improvements: 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 removed feedback buttons for release and fixed formatting errors from encoder following the encoding description.
winLAME is one of the best encoding solutions and it is recommended to anyone needing to convert their music to the most common file formats. Even if it has not been updated for several years, winLAME can still provide reliable encoding capabilities.
It uses the LAME MP3 Encoder library for encoding and the MAD library for decoding.
