    MP3's bass is too flat

    Hey guys and girls
    Have anyone noticed the huge diffrence from one mp3 to annother, the amount of bass of the encoding? It seems only a few mp3z are encoded well enough for them to sound rich in bass like original cds. I'm not talking about the bitrate either, some 128kbps have more bass and richer sound than some 192kbps. Is there a program out there that can re-encode mp3z with higher bass amplitude? Any solution to this problem would be greatly apreciated.
    Thanks

    Some encoders are crap, basically. I've come across AWFUL sounding MP3's at 192kbps. So bad I've had to chuck em! They had whistling in the high frequencies, distortion, all sorts of rubbish that the original "owner" obviously didn't notice/care about.

    Not sure you can re-encode and actually gain quality. It doesn't really work like that. You'd need the original source.

    Get the original CDs, and re-rip them to 192kbps (preferably higher) using the LAME codec.

    That's the only way to make sure that everything will be in top condition

    Better yet, encode everything in OGG. OGG doesn't cut out the BASS... or anything like MP3 does.

    its also free and in my opinions is far superior to MP3 quality and at a smaller file size.

    Not as widely used though therefore harder to find compatabilty with some progs..right now
