Joint Stereo. In Joint Stereo mode, the encoder optimizes the stereo encoding by comparing the two stereo channels. If similar information is found in the left and right channels, the encoder uses the similar information to minimize the data it stores in the MP3 file. While this encoding technique may result in better compression, it may result in a loss of stereo quality. An additional option when using Joint Stereo compression is the selection of Intensity Stereo. Selection of Intensity Stereo instructs the encoder to further optimize the encoding by minimizing the data encoded for higher frequency sounds. This can also improve the compression of the MP3 file, however in some cases the optimization of high frequency sounds may result in a loss of sound quality.

Mono. Create a Mono file
*
Stereo. By selecting Stereo mode, the encoder will create a Stereo MP3 file from a stereo project by treating the left and right channels as completely independent signals. Unlike Joint Stereo encoding, stereo encoding will not try to take advantage of similar information in left and right channels. As a result, Stereo Mode will completely preserve stereo separation without trying to reduce the data.
*
Mid/Side Stereo. Preserves most of the stereo effect of a file but at lower bandwidth. Not too useful at bit rates above 128 kbs.
Instead of producing a constant bit rate throughout the file, the Variable Bit Rate option optimizes the bit rate in different parts of the file to use a higher bit rate where it will make a difference, and a lower one where it won’t. This option generally produces a better quality file than constant bit rate encoding, but doesn’t produce the predictable file size you might need for downloadable files.
