When trying to export MP3 format directly from Cubase I get an error regarding licensing: "No more encodings"
I have Audacity, which uses the LAME encoder to make MP3 files. Currently the only way I can make an mp3 is to export a WAV file, load it into Audacity and then export an MP3 from there. Which, although tedious isn't the end of the world for quick edits and rough cuts.
But is there a way to just use the LAME mp3 encoder directly from the Cubase or use some other encoder? I don't mind paying a little bit for a decent mp3 encoder, but I do a lot of quick jams and ad-hoc recordings and don't want to be paying on a per-encoding model where I get charged for each mp3 I make.
