Hi guys! smile.gif

I am a total noob when it comes to recording, as I spend 99.9% of my time practicing and the rest actually recording. I have managed to record a slow solo but its currently on a CD. In WAV form I belive! Now i need to obviously convert this to MP3 ? How do you guys do it? Do I need to buy some special converter software? or are there some good Freeware applications available?

Many thanks! wink.gif

Heh, I just use Sony Vegas to convert laugh.gif I suppose Windows movie maker is just as good for that.
You can also convert to .mp3 with Audiograbber, but I think thats only when ripping CD's laugh.gif

Is this a good or bad way to do it? Lets wait for teh experts tongue.gif

Rereading your post - is this stored as a wav file on the CD, or as a regular audio CD? If it is the latter, you will need a ripper such as CDEX. If it is a file, WinLame will do the job ....
