Trying to convert an MP3 to an AU file.

It looks like Audacity has released a newer version of this program. All the tutorials I have seen deal with the older version.

My computer is windows 7.0 and I have an mp3 file that i need to switch it to AU 8 bit version for my Java program. I think my question is pretty straightforward and easy to answer. Hopefully, I can get a response quickly, so I can finish my wonderful Java program.

thanks in Advance.

You can greatly increase the number and type of files that Audacity will export by installing the FFMpeg software.

NB: there are different types of 8-bit AU format files ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Au_file_format

As Kozikowski was saying, you have to install a thing called FFmpeg into Audacity to maximize the number of formats it can read and write, instructions how to do that are here ...

You do need to identify which type of 8-bit AU file your application needs.

AU is in 'options' for 'other uncompressed files'.png
In Audacity export, AU format is in "options" of "other uncompressed files".
