Parallel Bladeenc is a true parallel version of the Bladeenc MP3 encoder; it distributes work across CPUs to speed up MP3 encoding. It uses the Message Passing Interface (MPI) for parallelization across SMPs and/or multiple machines. Hence, if you have a 4-way SMP, you can encode your MP3s about 4 times as fast as the regular Bladeenc; if you have two 4-way SMPs, you can encode about 8 times as fast.
