    Live doesn't support exporting your song as an MP3. There are however, many free tools to convert a WAV or AIFF file into an MP3.

    For OS X I would recommend Max (not Cycling 74's Max/MSP)

    For Windows (or OS X) you can use Audacity, but you'll need to follow some instructions to get it to export files as MP3 first.

    Hope this helps!

    I used Lame a long time - on both Platforms. On Mac I use "Right click mp3" from the App store, very good tool!

    On OS X I am a big fan of XLD (X Lossless Decoder)

    http://tmkk.pv.land.to/xld/index_e.html

    It encodes to MP3 using the LAME encoder, which (to my ears) sounds the best, and gives you the most options for setting encode quality. It also encodes to other formats like FLAC, Apple Lossless, and AAC.

    If you're inclined to use command-line tools, LAME MP3 encoder is the standard. It has to be built though, and can be compiled on all major OS's. You get a fine degree of control for the outcome of the mp3 file, which is my main reason for using it, and I had no problems with the build even on Windows.

    I use this tool on Windows: http://www.wav-mp3.com/. Is pretty simple; you drag a list of files on it and it converts them. You can preset various ID3 params, which is handy.
