From MusiCAD

It can be useful to save a track as MP3 file.

MusiCAD uses two external programs with corresponding plugin.

  • to convert an exported midi file to a wav file: MID2WAV.plugin
  • to convert that large wav file into a (ten times smaller) mp3 file: WAV2MP3.plugin

The plugins are used in [File|Save as]

For example, an (external) program that generates mp3 is ffmpeg.

 ffmpeg -i sourcefile.wav -acodec libmp3lame resultfile.mp3


Depending on where ffmpeg is installed you will have to edit the WAV2MP3.plugin file.
