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 macOS you are using,
and the exact three-section version number of Audacity from "Audacity menu > About Audacity".


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.
