Hi, I have no issue making MP3s from Cakewalk but my sister is trying it and getting a message about having to buy an encoder.

Anybody know about this? Just wondering what to tell her.

Thanks

Jono

That's real old info, You do not have to activate MP3 encoder in CbB. Only real old obsolete versions of Sonar which nobody should be using anyhow.

nahhh--its from December 2020--yes, last year, but only last month [December 28, 2020].

Didn't realize the thread had outdated info even though it was less than a month old.  I have removed the link. Thanks.

The free LAME MP3 encoder is supported by Cakewalk. The MP3 patent expired years ago, so nobody has to buy an encoder any more.

You can also easily export to MP3 in the free Audacity wave editor. Just import your final stereo wave mix into Audacity and convert there, as it also supports LAME.

Myself I use Gold Wave. It's free to use forever ( nag screen @abacab :) )  = I paid the $50 a long time ago for lifetime membership. Great little Canadian software company- yes  we are also hi tech and not just all about snowmobiles.

Thanks, she was using an old version and didn't realize it! 

I didn't understand because BL version includes the mp3 encoder.

Thanks!
