I use grip with lame and it works fine. I used the following settings
(in the encoding configuration tab):

- encoder: lame
- program: /usr/bin/lame
- command line:
  --vbr-new -V3 --tt "%n" --ta "%a" --tl "%d" --ty "%y" --tn "%t" --tg
  "%G" %w %m
  (this will give you bitrates around 160 kbps usually)
- file format: /my/path/to/mp3s/%A/%d/%t - %n.%x

Paying for the fluendo mp3 codecs just gives money to software patent
lobbyists, AFAIK.
