    I used to use the Soundforge program that came with my computer to convert files, but it doesnt support mp3's without paying for the plugin anymores. But there are programs out there, even for free, that'll convert em. I'd give a link if I had any, but I dont.. well good luck with that neways ;)

    Never came across that problem.

    CDex is one of the best as it uses the 'Lame' MP3 codec, which is easily the best codec of it's type.

    I would check the sample rate you recorded it at, as changing that when you encode could double or half the speed of the mix.

    Soundforge is the best thing to use,
    just open the wav file up and save as a mp3,

    dunno why it would of saved it twice as fast unless u changed the sample rate or summit :shrug:

    most likely that your mix was recorded at 22KHz and you're mp3 encoder is using 44.1KHz... Check the encoding options for "sampling frequency" or "sample rate" and change it to 22k.
