Make it a Rack Extension so I don't have to buy into it.
MP3 sucks. Lossless or GTFO.

Not all MP3's are created equal, even at the same bitrate, the quality of the encoding varies widely.

So this is not as simple as it sounds.

Best leave the MP3-encoding to programs that are specialized to do that.

No. I like to be sure both WAV and MP3 are the same file. And a straight conversion is faster.

I'm all for it. Doing MP3 elsewhere is a pain & the fidelity is usually lame.
Using Audacity, no pun intended.

Can't understand people who would vote not to have this feature as if it would offend them somehow?? I'm assuming reason doesn't have it because they may have to pay some kind of royalty to use it in their software.

The way Mark of the Unicorn dealt with the licensing issue was to add the export hooks in but require the user to install the LAME framework and encoder DLLs on their own. Seemed reasonable to me.

On the next update that would otherwise be free, you charge 5 bucks for the update? Not a problem.
I use MP3s all the time in cases where I have to email a track to a musician for them to add, say a bass part or vocals.It seems to work pretty well in PT 10 and I think I even saw where you can embed a picture in there as well....or was thtonly in iTunes, anyway, I'm FOR it.

Because it costs development time. Time that could be spent on better things. MP3 export isn't likely to bring new users (income) as people just will use a convertor.
