Aw, c'mon, the parameters aren't *that* bad. =)

Depending on what version of the script you are running, there ought to be a
line[s] like this in there somewhere; edit as necessary:

' LAME encoder options may need to be tweaked for smaller size and/or better
' sound quality. Some variations seem to sound better than others on my
' recorder. Lines starting with a ' are commented out, BTW!

'--- Joerg's SPDIF compatible settings
'Const LameOpts = "-m m --vbr-new -t --nores -S"

'--- VBR, independent frames, silent mode, Joerg's latest
'Const LameOpts = "--vbr-new --scale 0.5 -t -S"

'--- Mono, 24 kbps, silent mode, 32 KHz
'Const LameOpts = "-m m -b 24 -S" ' --resample 16" ' original settings

  Const LameOpts = "-t -S --vbr-new --scale 0.6 --resample 44 -V 4"
