MP3 CD Sound Tailoring

I make MP3 cds for the car and a playlist has to be generated for burning so I make them using winamp. I noticed that you can "tailor" the sound by adjusting the equalizer in winamp and then saving the playlist but the thing is, the sound is never good enough especially in the bass department using winamp. Is there any other programs I can use, even in windows or anything that can "tailor" the sound I want for the MP3 disc.

Winamp gives me good clarity but not deep bass. Its not the speakers cause FM stereo radio gives deep bass using the radio sound.

Anyone know? My sound card on the computer (Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live) has different presets for sound on the computer and one of them has deep bass but not sure how to put it all together for the MP3 disc recording.

I use the software that came with my CDRW drive - Nero burning rom. I've never had any difference from the original CDs, and any copied CD's and MP3 CD's. Pretty good software IMO.

If you are making an MP3 disc, it's simply copying the files from your hard disk to the CD. If they normally sound OK on your PC, but they are lacking in bass when played from the CD in your car, then the problem is the quality of your car's MP3 decoder.

Winamp can only generate a playlist which lists the names of tracks. Any bass/treble change will only happen as & when you play those tracks in winamp, the change won't apply to the mp3 file when it is burned to a CD.

FWIW, the bass on even highest bitrate MP3s is not as well defined as when you play the original CD.. but I notice this only on my home Yamaha hi-fi setup, not in my car (they both are of similar total value).

You could re-encode every track with increased bass, but it's not terribly simple as you would have to add the bass in 'analogue wave form' and then save it and encode as an MP3.

there is a way to change the sound. Ashman I think told me once.
