Recently I got inspired and decided to make a good remix of some popular songs with the help of Audacity software. It is free and it has lots of features that allow you to edit music and save as mp3 or any other extension. Anyhow, after working on the remix of the song I decided to export it as MP3 file, but the system error popped up saying that lame_enc.dll is missing from my computer and I need to reinstall the application. Luckily, I saved the project and after the reinstallation of the program I have tried to perform the same action, but the lame_enc.dll is missing error still remained. I never had problems with Audacity, but this one was pretty irritating. I’ve tried to contact Audacity, but they are hard to get in touch with, so I started to search online for the solution.
lame_enc.dll is the library that is necessary for MP3 encoding for Audacity and due to some issues with software patents, Audacity is not able to provide MP3 encoding software along with the program. Therefore, this error is quite common for those who are trying to export files as MP3. However, there are good news – there is a quite simple solution for lame_enc.dll is missing or not found error. All you have to do is download lame_enc.dll file from here: https://fix4dll.com/lame_enc_dll. Now you can extract the library wherever you want and once you try to export to MP3 the Audacity will ask you for the location of lame_enc.dll which you have already downloaded. Simply indicate the path to the file and you are done. The file will be successfully exported to MP3. Hope this guide was helpful for you and you were able to fix lame_enc.dll is missing error.
