Audacity version 3.1.3
Job: convert many .aiff files into mp3s in one go
Problem: documented method is to run ‘MP3 Conversion’ macro using ‘Files’. However, Audacity GUI insists one must save and close the current project first. Fine…done that. Eeek! GUI no longer shows the Tools menu so can’t get at the macro to run it.
(a) Open one music file or project file so GUI shows Tools menu.
(b) run ‘SelectAllRemove’ macro (see below) to close tracks but keep project window open.
(c) now run ‘MP3 Conversion’ macro using ‘Files’, everything works as documented.
If there is a better workaround for this, I’d love to know of it!
