Enabling mp3 with Lame

The instructions posted on the Audacity site are pretty helpful.

  1. Go to the LAME download page.
  2. Click on any link from the list of identical "lame-3.96.1" links.
  3. When you have finished downloading LAME, unzip it and save the file lame_enc.dll anywhere on your computer.
  4. The first time you use the "Export as MP3" command, Audacity will ask you where lame_enc.dll is saved.
You can also download the necessary file below
Right Click that link and save in c:\Program Files\Audacity
When first exported an mp3, Audacity will ask you where it's saved.  Find it in that directory and you should be good to go.


Will try & hopefully report back via an intro.
