1. edit Makefile
at least change the architecture type (ARCH) to suit your machine.
./toolame [options] < input > < output >
tooLAME parses AIFF and WAV files for file info
raw PCM is assumed if no header is found
for stdin use a -
file is automatically renamed from *.* to *.mp2
for stdout use a -
if inputting raw PCM sound, you must specify the sample rate
default sample rate is 44.1khz.
downmix from stereo to mono
if the incoming file is stereo, combine the audio into
a single channel
force byte-swapping of the input. (current endian detection is dodgy,
so if toolame produces only noise, use -x )
swap the LR channels of a stereo file
the encoding mode (default 'j')
'd' dual channel
'j' joint stereo
which psy model to use (default '1')
Different models for the psychoacoustics
Models: -1 to 4
the total bitrate
For 48/44.1/32kHz default = 192
For 24/22.05/16kHz default = 96
Switch on VBR mode.
The higher the number the better the quality.
Useful range -10 to 10.
See README.VBR for details.
fast mode turns off calculation of the psychoacoustic model.
Instead a set of default values are assumed
quick mode calculates the psy model every 'num' frames.
de-emphasis (default 'n')

mark as original
add error protection
force padding bits off
add DAB extensions
'talkativity' setting. 0 = no message. 3 = too much information
