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
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.
