This site is mine (Buanzo / Arturo Busleiman), and you will find Audacity-compatible plug-ins and libraries such as those needed for MP3 Encoding, or the FFmpeg library for wider file format support. This site is NOT affiliated with Audacity(R) in any other way than by compatibility with it.

LAME is a library that allows some programs to encode MP3 files. LAME is free, but in some countries you may need to pay a license fee in order to legally encode MP3 files.

Audacity is a free and open source Audio Editor which allows you to convert ogg to mp3, convert mp3 to ogg, convert vinyls to mp3 or ogg, do any kind of home recording, remove noise, etc. Is WONDERFUL. I have used it to record and mix some of my bands songs. Feel free to check out this page to download some songs.

To use LAME (or FFmpeg) with Audacity, you can put it anywhere you want, but the first time you want to export an MP3 file, Audacity will ask you for the location of this file, so you will want to remember where you put it.


For FFmpeg/LAME on Windows click below:

If Audacity does not detect LAME, download the ZIP option, extract the files inside to a well known folder, then open Audacity, go to Library Preferences and configure it to search on the well known folder you extracted the files to.
