    So I am trying to convert/ record some of my father which luckily recorded on tape and having trouble outputting to mp3.
    I have been trying to use libmp3lame.dylib which should also work according to Audacity's website but it doesn't. Is there another library I can use or should I use another program (PPC only)?

    the set up is that I can only use my PMG5 for recording/capturing onto.

    What happens when your try and output to mp3? No error just nothing happens?

    EDIT: I looked up this issue and saw others had it but never really got a fix for it. What you could do is export to another format(.wav for example) and use one of the programs on this page to convert it to a MP3, http://macpowerpc.com/tag/switch/.

    Output to WAV or AIFF, then convert to MP3 or AAC using iTunes?

    Why would you be mad enough to use Audacity over GarageBand might I ask?

    I couldn't find it. Anyway garageband seems to be better so I'm using that.

    Audacity works fine for me and saves to MP3 - I've attached the library I use on PPC.
