    • Go to:
    • Scroll down until you see the link for Audacity for Windows:
    • When you download the LAME mp3 encoder, you will need to save it to your computer, find it in your programs and click on it to extract the correct file.
    • Then, when you export from Audacity as an mp3 the first time, it will ask you to find that file and attach it. You will only need to do this one time and it will be set up indefinitely after that.
