Hi Chris - and List,I wanted to jump in here and relate my experience with converting to MP3 files.
For a while I was using Gold Wave to do it until the last few versions came out. For anyone using that program, you know that it uses Lame for the encoder. I discovered that Gold Wave was converting files at a lower quality, and I couldn't change it; so I'm using Switch Sound File Converter, and it'll allow you to set the parameters so that you can get a high quality stereo MP3 file at a bit rate of 128-KBPS. The program is accessible, so there shouldn't be an issue with that; I realize that there are a host of programs out there that'll do the same thing, but at least it can be done without having to deal with it through Sonar. I generally convert from a 24-bit Wave file, and I can go lower than that for MP3 files if necessary - and they still sound halfway decent.
Just my two cents - for what it's worth. Mike----- Original Message ----- From: "Chris Smart" <csmart8@xxxxxxxxx>

I'm assuming you're a CakeTalking user? IN which case, you should just readLESSON 53. MIXING DOWN. DISTRIBUTING YOUR PROJECT.Seriously, and this is not directed at anybody in particular, the first place to check should be the awesome 400+ page tutorial you paid for as part of the CakeTalking package. *grin* Chris
