Don't know about the "-new" switch. One FAQ out there says:jules wrote: Does the standard "transparent" setting mean "-V 2 --vbr-new"?
http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=LameThe switch --vbr-new, which enabled a superior VBR mode in LAME 3.97 and some previous versions, is no longer needed with LAME 3.98 as it is now the default VBR mode. However, if you're still using LAME 3.97 or older, you have to add --vbr-new to your commandline to use that mode.
Maybe that would correspond to the "Encoding Engine Quality" which is set to "High" (but greyed out) when "Transparent" is selected in Max. Maybe not.
But everything else definitely fits that profile. As you can see in the sheet where you configure the format, the "Transparent" setting in Max is "Quality" based not bitrate-based, and the target bitrate is ~190kbps VBR, and the "Varibale bitrate mode is "fast". All that is right for -V 2.
