Actually, I'm currently using 44100, mono, quality -1 which is using about
80% CPU (K6II-525), including Winamp which uses about 8% without OddCast.  I
would like to restrict the bitrate to 32kb/s for modems without going to
22050 samples but it looks like I will not be able to with this PC.

Yes, but I didn't think it would be that bad!
