- Choose the quality here (0 to 7). Default is 5, best quality is 7,
- smallest file size is 0. This setting effects how much your sound
- sample will be compressed. Higher quality settings result in larger
- MP3 files.
-
- The quality setting is just a way of selecting an average bit rate,
- or number of bits per second, for a recording. When this setting
- is lowered, recordings are compressed more (meaning worse sound quality),
- and the average bitrate changes as follows.

- This sub menu contains options for file splitting, which can be used to split

- increase or decrease gain to reach it.
-
