Converting Files into MP3

In order to convert your music files into .mp3 format you must download a MP3 encoder onto your PC.

We recommend two alternative encoders; BLAZE and LAME. You can download these encoders for free by visiting the following websites.

Blaze (ShareWare):  http://www.blazemp.com/downloads.html

Lame (FreeWare):  http://www.free-codecs.com/Lame_Encoder_download.htm

In order for the encoders to work correctly, follow these step-by-step instructions:

  1. Visit one of the recommend website.
  2. When the window pops up that asks you where you would like to save the file, make sure you save it in the same directory you have saved Hip Hop Record Producer to. By default it is: C:/ Program File / PCDJ Producer
  3. Once the encoder is installed open Record Producer.
  4. Select the encoder you installed from the drop down box in the program's "config." options.
  5. When you have selected the MP3 codec in the "config" options, drop down the rate selection and set it to the highest option. Then do it again, and you will find that higher numbers appear.
  6. Keep repeating STEP 5 and the numbers will gradually climb to the highest level available.
  7. Save your options and you will be able to export to MP3 in the same manners as WAV.
