How to Export Audacity to MP3

Audacity is one of the most famous audio editing tools on the internet. It is an open source software which works on almost any operating system. Thus, you can use it whether you have Windows, Mac, or Linux OS. The downside, however, is that it’s more difficult to use than the usual audio editor. Anyhow, if you get use to it, you will surely enjoy its features. As aside from editing, you can directly use Audacity to record audio. There is also an auto-tune tool that will help you polish your file. The tool also supports exporting of your edited file to different format such as mp3. To know how to do this, refer to the instructions below.
