Where are Lame files? [SOLVED]

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Please state which version of OS X you are using, the exact three-section version of Audacity from Audacity > About Audacity and whether you obtained the .dmg installer or the zip.

Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

Using Mac 10.11.6 (El capitan) I can download the lame plug in but the library can't find it. Every time I try to export the files to MP3 I get the message that I need to download LAME. Any idea what is happening here?

Make sure you have Audacity 2.1.3 from http://www.audacityteam.org/download/mac/ (see the pink panel at the top of this page).

Then use the LAME 3.99.5 installer as instructed in the FAQ: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/installing_and_updating_audacity_on_mac_os_x.html#maclame.

Thank you, this seems to have worked. I think an old Audacity was hanging around.
