If it's a voice programme, rather than music, a useful option is the
"aactomp3" flag, which will transcode at 128kbps, no matter what the
original is. I use this very successfully for all the drama programmes I
record from Radio 4 Extra. Of course, for music, you may wish to retain the
320kbps for the higher quality.
