I just started using Audacity (v. 2.2.2) for MP3 export/conversions (w/Lame v.3.99.3) and after I recorded the entire side of a 33.3 vinyl record, only the first track of my 4-track recording session was saved and converted to an MP3.
The 4-tarck session ran for a little over 23 minutes. At the end of track 4, I clicked on STOP and saved my project. I then selected ‘Export to MP3’ and it went through the export process. Thinking all 4 tracks were saved as one long MP3, I then found out only the first track had been saved and converted to the MP3 format.
Question: Can Audacity record sequential tracks of a vinyl record that are separated by 2-second gaps between tracks and allow an MP3 save of all 4 tracks, complete with gaps? If so, could someone point me to that part In the User Manual that describes how to do this.
I would prefer not to export each track individually and convert each to an MP3. I would like to record an entire side of the vinyl record in one session and save as one MP3. Thank you for any input on this issue. NealO.
