In the 90th years there was an opportunity to edit sound records by means of the computer.

Open the program encoder, convenient for you, for example, of OggEnc or any other.


Expose key parameters: quality (installation of a level of quality of a sound), downmix (mixing of the second channel in the first), resample (installation of frequency of sampling), output (installation of a name of the file for a conclusion). Establish also additional parameters: basic width of a stream, quality of the squeezed file, a name of the final file, the accompanying characteristics.


Enter a name of the processed sound file into the menu or in a command line of the encoder.


Choose bitrate (sound depth). Take into account that for the home computer bitrate of 112 kbps, for the professionals using the high-quality professional equipment – 224 kbps will be optimum.


Observe how passes coding. In parallel with it trace amount of time which remained before the end of process.


Specify the folder in which the program will save the recoded files. Remember that by default the squeezed file is located in the same folder where the initial is stored.


Check quality of coding, having listened to the processed file by means of the player. Use, for example, the WinAmp program or any built-in system player.
