Been using AA 3.0.1 a long time, but can't explain why this is happening. I usually save a song as a wave file, no problem, but then I do a "save copy as", in order to make an mp3 of the song, but now my choice to save is this:
mp3PRO (FhG) (*.wav,*.mp3).
First off, I don't ever recall the *.wav ever being part of the file extension along with *.mp3. Secondly, after I save the file the song shows up as "mysong.wav", instead of "mysong.mp3", but looking at the file size, around 5k for a 256kbps that runs around 2:30, makes it look to be saved as an mp3 file...a wav file size would be around 25000kb.
So, it looks like it's being saved as a .mp3 file, but showing that it was saved as a .wav file.
How the heck did this happen, and what can I do to make sure that the publisher I'm sending an .mp3 file to, is actually getting an .mp3 file, and won't have any trouble opening it??
Another crazy thing to mess with me and use up what little time I have...
Usually because an mp3 has been saved accidentally with .wav left at the end of the name, a fairly common occurrence. Just do an mp3 Save As again and actually type .mp3 on the end of the name. This should correct Audition's adding .mp3 to the end of saved mp3s automatically again.
I suspect that your saved file is in fact an mp3 so just rename it correcting the suffix.
