so, I've got a new live song, what's the quickest way to convert it to an mp3 so I can email to someone
?

currently I render to disk, drag into itunes, convert to mp3, search in library to find new converted file, drag file to desktop, open new message, drag mp3 into email message.

anyone know how to shorten this process?

thats about it...

accept if you create a new playlist in itunes before you convert the file then you won't be spending much time searching for it.

also, the mp3 is created in USER/music/ITunes/ so if you can't seem to find it in your itunes library I would search there.

thanks John for the quick reply. good tip on the play-list and where it's located those will help save some time.

I have never written a script or used automator, I was thinking that this might be a way to go as well. we'll see how much time I have over thanksgiving to devote to figuring this out!

many free mp3converters will output the mp3 directly to your desktop. Pretty easy to find from there.

Audacity - Freeware AudioEditor will save/convert files to either MP3 or OGG VORBIS format.
Set it up as you Audio editor in Live.
Render to Disk.
Drag and Drop Render into arranger View.
Click on the sample Clip properties and hit EDIT.
This will automaticly open Audacity.
Convert to MP3 or Ogg .
Save to a specified Folder containing MP3 files.
Possible a more elegant solution for you.

Should be able to get Lame/Razor Lame which is a great little encoder/decoder. My is set up to save files to a specific location, I then loads tunes into a folder, open the folder in Razor Lame, select the bitrate and hit go...it doesn't matter if its one or many files....same process...so you can run a batch and just leave it running till it's done.

I find it a god send for converting wav's and MP3 so Final Scratch can read them correctly.

dallas!
