MP3 export bitrate on command line

MuseScore 2.2.1

When converting a score to .mp3 on command line, "-b " doesn't seem to work. I tried "-b 64", "-b 64000", "-b 64k", "-b 64kbps". The resulting .mp3 file is always 128kbps.

It still generates a 128kbps file with -b 65535 or -b 65536.
However, if I call MuseScore with WAV output, then call lame as a separate command with "-b 64", it creates a 64kbps file. (And it seems to be faster.) So I think that's what I will do.
Thank you for the answers.

Why are you high jacking an entirely unrelated thread rather than creating a new one yourself?
However, that score is broken beyond repair (after a valid ZIP header it contains nothing but zeros, see #271185: Scores corrupted beyond repair, containing nothing but zeros, esp. the Google doc linked to at the end and see whether you can tell us more aboutn how this happened) and you'd need to look for a backup, see
