Have been using Wavepad Master's since 2013. no problems, except one annoyance that is unrelated to this topic. Suddenly two weeks ago my program stopped saving mp3's. I use the Save As, and click on the MP3 file (from wav file to mp3) and it takes me through the process but then it doesn't save the file as an mp3. I can save as wav files. I also tried this on Mixpad multitrack, and the same thing occurred. I am using the latest version of Wavepad Master's edition, but this occurred in the 5.55 version before I upgraded. It is still occurring. This happened on my windows computer prior to upgrading to the Creator version, and continued after the upgrade. Is there a setting on my computer that could be impacting whether I can save to mp3, or is there something else going on with NCH that I don't know about? Thanks. The program is useless to me without being able to save to mp3.
