Set the Q parameter to zero

Set the Q parameter to zero because of the speed of CPUs now-a-days -- Or a toggle switch called Algorithm: High ; Max and make the two Q=2 and Q=0 

To those who dont know, not rej; ; this is the parameter that tells it how hard and long to work with how much math to make the best compression possible -- the one that has nothing to do with file size or compression amount, but quality of compression,

Is called Psi Acoustics

Looks like the mp3 patents

Looks like the mp3 patents are actually starting to expire.

Yes, in the US, the last

Yes, in the US, the last remaining mp3-related patent expired on April 16, 2017, according to Wikipedia. In the EU, it has been patent-free since 2012.

While I'd personally rather see support for modern, preferably open-by-design, formats like FLAC and/or Opus (the superior successor to [Ogg] Vorbis), it seems Soundcloud still transcodes (for streaming) everything that isn't already a 128kbps MP3, so perhaps there are still valid corner cases for MP3.
