Audio profiles define a pipeline fragment, and give it a human-readable
name.  For example, one of the default profiles is called "CD Quality
(lossy)" and is:

  audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! vorbisenc name=enc quality=0.7

Basically, enforce the quality to 44.1KHz stereo, and encode it using
Ogg Vorbis.

There are several profiles (including "CD Quality (lossless)" which uses
FLAC), and Sound Juicer presents the user with a list of available
profiles, from which the user picks on.  That selection is private to
Sound Juicer, so you only need to set it once.
