Script convert MP3

Hi guys !

First i m sorry for my bad English :slight_smile:

I m searching for put as default the MP3 format when the user try to save his tape on Audacity.
How can i do that ?

Thx for your help !


Please read the pink panel at the top of the page and tell us your version of Audacity and version of Windows, Mac or Linux.

This is the recommended method, using File > Export Multiple: Splitting a recording into separate tracks.

Once you have chosen the MP3 export format in Export Multiple, Audacity will remember that MP3 choice.


Hi again,

I m working on Windows 7 and i use Audacity 2.0.6.
It’s not what i was waiting for my problem. The user save one folder as .WAV like that : File / Export Audio …
And im searching to set the format on .MP3 by default.

I found another way, but u can give me your ideas about it :slight_smile:

Thx for your answers !

Any scripts you write are your decision. If you choose “MP3 Files” as “Save as type” when you export, then next time you export, the export dialogue will automatically be set to export as “MP3 Files”.
