    Digital-A: I can’t remember what I use at the moment but when I get home I’ll post it’s name up here so you can go look for it.

    It’s a nice, small, free & simple convertor. Some programs come loaded with plenty of rubbish that you don’t need and are full of ads.

    In fact I think it might be called CDex or Freerip, can’t remember. Both are designed for ripping audio from CD’s but also have the encoder/convertor feature.

    Only if you’ve got it set to do so – but if not, you can do it via a right-click in iTunes.

    Audacity is a cross-platform audio editor, and it has a plugin called LAME which allows it to export to MP3. I’ve not used them on Windows but LAME is *the* Open Source mp3 encoder and the encoding quality is usually reckoned to be first rate. As an audio editor you can probably also use it to tidy up any fluffs or make a better run-in/run-out.

    Have a look and maybe download them (free of course!) and see if it suits you.

    Playing one tomorrow, not at blueprint though 😉 as for going to psycle i havent, going to meet the crew tomorrow … my live audition and then hopefully give them all a big enough smile to let me play blueprint. As for wanting to hear my tunes, itd be best if you heard it live as i dunno … trance through home speakers is pretty much an insult and the weird thing is that i get dead nervous knowing its being recorded so my first attempt sounded awful :S
