So Ableton actually can't convert to mp3.

If I have exported my .wav file, what programs do you recommend to convert this stuff?
I would appreciate free stuff of course :S

Thanks for the replies

Search the forums; plenty of earlier threads talking about this.

My favourite is wavosaurus. Use it both for conversions as well as editing samples. free; supports asio & vsts and is pretty small too.

Audacity is free and does the trick:

If you're on Mac, I highly recommend RightClickMP3: http://www.rightclickmp3.com/
It does exactly what it says it does. Extremely convenient. $6, but totally worth it.

I use Max from sbooth for batch conversions:

Free, and it uses the LAME algorithm.

use audacity and download the lame mp3 library - you can use audacity to compress, limit, etc..

Not sure it's absolutely the best quality but for me when most of the material has been munged and mashed to destruction anyway it works fine.

You can do a bit of post Live mastering with it.

Recommended and totally free of the usual toolbar, search crap that comes with a lot of these half arsed mp3 rippers.
