Optional Downloads

LAME MP3 link Despite its name, LAME is perhaps the best free MP3 encoder available. Copy the lame_enc.dll file into the folder where GoldWave is installed (usually C:\Program Files\GoldWave) or copy it into the C:\Windows\System (or equivalent) folder.
170k zip This download adds Ogg Vorbis 1.0 support to GoldWave. Vorbis is a patent-free audio encoding standard. It compresses audio just as much as MP3, often with better quality. To install, unzip the file into the C:\Windows\System (or C:\WinNT\System32 or equivalent) folder.

Known Issues and Solutions

Although every effort has been made to ensure GoldWave runs properly, some combinations of sound/video drivers and hardware are unstable. Make sure all the latest Windows Updates are installed on your system.
  1. On some systems, using different read techniques in the CD audio extraction tool may freeze the system. In most cases only the MMC technique should be used.
  2. LAME_ENC.DLL version 3.88 creates bad mono MP3 files. Use v3.92 or later (link above).
  3. Dragging a window over the real time graphs will leave pixel debris.
