So normally when I rip my music, I use Exact Audio Copy and I rip the CDs into -V0 mp3.

An obscure band I like that is defunct has put out their songs on their Myspace for download, but they're all uncompressed WAV files. Does anyone have any suggestions or trusted programs for how to compress the files into specifically -V0 or -V2 mp3?

You could uhh just grab a LAME binary and run it through with the -V0 flag. That's what EAC does

Yeah I don't really know what that means. I'm kinda computer retarded too.

Find the lame.exe on your computer (Open EAC, F11, Ext Compression tab and there'll be a box telling you where it is). Copy that into the directory of the files you want to compress. Then open a command prompt (if you have Win7, hold shift and right click on the folder > "Open Command Prompt Here") then run "lame.exe -V0 something.wav" and it will compress that file to V0.

There's probably a way to make it do them all at once, but *.wav isn't doing it.

Code:
for %%file in (*.wav) do (
  lame.exe -V0 %%file
)

"Lame.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file."

God this is such a pain in the ass.

just get cdex. it can encode .wav files straight into .mp3 and has a gui.

http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/

you can set your encode settings to VBR0 in Tools --> Settings (or F4)
then hit wav --> mp3 (or F11) and find the wav files on your computer and hit convert.
