Is it possible to upgrade a file from 128kbps to 192kbps?
Nope. MP3 is a lossy format, once it's encoded there's no way to get the quality back.
Edit: Actually, you could re-encode the file at 192, but it'd end up sounding the same as the 128 version
More info? Is there a program that will do that?
I record all my mixes through a software that will only encode at 128kbps.. I have a chance to submit my mixes to the program director of channel 82, but it must be a minimum of 192kbps..so I need to find something that will let me bump it up to 192, even if it sounds the same.
The easiest way would be to convert it to .wav and then back to .mp3 format using the LAME encoder. There might be a utility that could cut out the middle step.
Try Goldwave. Open the 128 kbit file, save as 192 kbits.
I'll try both tonight. Thanks guys.
