more info @ http://www.wavosaur.com/forum/export-as-mp3-with-wavosaur-lame-encoder-setup-t335.html

- Download the lame encoder dll (lame_enc.dll)
you can find it over the internet, on website like this
- Unzip and place the lame_enc.dll into your Wavosaur folder, or in a system folder.
- (re)Launch Wavosaur
- You can now export MP3 from menu Files->Export->Export as MP3

I just did that (put the lame_enc.dll file in the wavosaur folder) and I still couldn't export mp3. On a hunch, I put the dll file in the folder containing the original sound file which was also the folder the edited mp3 file was to be saved to. That worked. As a test I removed the dll file from that input/output folder and it again wouldn't export mp3. As soon as I put it back in, it exported mp3.

I wasn't able to reproduce that, it works for me with the lame dll next to the Wavosaur executable (or in a system folder)
Are there any other user with the same problem ?

i am experiencing the same problem. I was testing the mp3-export by putting the lame_enc.dll into wavosaur's directory or windows-dir. or windows\system-directory and always reloading Wavosaur i changed the dll position.
Is there a solution ?
I am testing on a Vista 64 system with Wavosaur 1.0.5.0.

Had same issue, solved by downloading the 64 bit lame .dll from the link provided by from 'Wellthatsucks'. replaced the 32 bit version i had installed in the .exe running directory and export worked flawlessly.

Amazing functionality in such a compact package, wish more developers followed your style.
Okayyyyyy

Your audio editor was retrieved essentially to trim prerecorded internet radio music in mp3-compacted form. So it was a surprise that Wavosaur's otherwise useful software perforce saves the result in FAR larger wav format. Why? I presume that once a sound file is compressed its original fidelity cannot be recovered, regardless of new format and size. Am I mistaken?

Also surprising, and disappointing, is that the clever folks who created software as compact and versatile as this didn't either include a converter to the popular format in the standard programme; or offer it as an optional plug-in or whatever.

Anyway, your lame-encoder instructions were followed but neither site is working - lame indeed. So the onerous alternative is a lengthy transfer to a converting website and retrieval of the re-compacted file thereafter. Any simpler procedure will be much appreciated.

Thank you.

no ,you're not mistaken Mr. Green , but the problem is not here :

the quality loss occurs when encoding : each time you export to mp3, you (re)-encode the file, and add degradation.
saving as wav assure that you have the same sound you had when recording without any more degradation

the mp3 licence may seem to be free for the end user, but it''s not free for the developper
if we include the mp3 encoding to our software, we have to pay the licence for using mp3 (and it's not cheap!) : we can't continue to offer free software if we had to pay the mp3 fees

Thank you, Rex, for the prompt reply. I had commented:

> >> I presume that once a sound file is compressed its original fidelity cannot be recovered, regardless of new format and size. Am I mistaken?
>

"Mr. Green"? I am impressed that what has been removed - after all one talks of lossLESS editing - can somehow be 'unlossed'. But I don't doubt that you are correct. If you know of a link that explains this I'd be interested in learning more. But this is of secondary importance and I don't want to impose on you.

I WOULD be grateful, however, if you can confirm that an mp3 file from which Wavousaur has removed only a few seconds at the beginning or the end of a recording and then converted to wav will, to discerning ears at least, actually sound better than the original. If so and if storage space isn't an issue, then reconversion won't be necessary.

This at least partially answers my earlier question. The conversion to mp3 is evidently both (and mainly) reductive but also ADDITIVE.

> ...the mp3 licence may seem to be free for the end user, but it''s not free for the developper

Ah, fair enough.

> > if we include the mp3 encoding to our software, we have to pay the licence for using mp3 (and it's not cheap!) : we can't continue to offer free software if we had to pay the mp3 fees

I completely understand.

You say nothing about the lame-encoder problems. If there's an alternative I hope you'll let me know.

Again, many thanks.

Antonio

I have downloaded both the 32 bit and 64 bit lame MP3 files, extracted into the directory where Wavosaur EXE files is located. I have also placed the MP3 in that same directory. I reloaded Wavosaur each time and continue to receive the Wavosaur error; Unable to export mp3 files. Make sure lame encoder is installed.

I don't know what else to do and it seems from the Posts above it is working for some people.
