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

Looks like the mp3 patents are actually starting to expire.
So maybe you could... cough "contact the developer" of this app and see about merging it into Caustic 3 for real.

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.
