    tried it. seems to produce lots of hiss when converting from mp4 (youtube video) to mp3. try some other converters if this consistent, meaning my settings, or gnac itself.

    update. installed ffmpeg with different conversion options. no static or hiss in end mp3 file. tried again gnac with different settings, instead of the high quality vbr default option, to cbr 320Kbps. same results when converting the mp4 to mp3 with audible hiss and static.
