I was fiddling with Guitar Rig (2) today, and came up with a cunning way of being able to get a track from Guitar Rig to an MP3.

  1. Enable tapedeck one and two in Guitar Rig - these can be found above the main effects window, near the metronome icon.
  2. Press the new recording icon on both tape decks
  3. When you're reading to record, press record on the second tape deck
  4. Save your recording on the second tapedeck as a .wav file
  5. Grab a copy of Audacity and the LAME MP3 dll (both free)
  6. In Audacity, go to project > import audio, and import the audio from your Guitar Rig .wav
  7. Save the project as an MP3, and away you go!
  8. Note - if you keep the wave file, you can open it in Guitar Rig at a later date, select a different effect and go through the process again to save it with a different sound, without having to re-record.

Interesting way of making direct mp3!

BTW, you mentioned using Audacity - isn't that the same as using Cubase for mp3 encoding?

I think Cubase also uses the LAME codec, but Cubase isn't free ...
I've always found Cubase a little too much hassle to lay down a single-track MP3 rather quickly

I think Cubase is really easy, but then again... I've used it very much smile.gif
But a nice way of using Guitar Rig you found there, thanks for sharing!
I bet it'll be useful for some of the members here smile.gif

You're right man, sorry! smile.gif

Can you skip the Audacity and just use some free wav>mp3 converter?

The reason for using Audacity was that Guitar Rig doesn't save its .wav files as stanard 44hz wave files, so programs like Audiograbber can't encode them. Audacity has the functionality of being able to import the audio from the file into a new project.

Think you're 100% correct here. AFAIK Cubase since V4 allows the use of the Fraunhoefer MP3 encoder but on a limited license - something like 20 or 30 encodings. After that it won't run unless you get a separate license. To get round this Steinberg have included LAME. BTW - the license thing is down to Fraunhoefer labs not Steinberg, most digital sequencers have the same issue and many have switched to LAME or a similar to get round it.
