    my best guess...why am i guessing?

    If a mp3 option is not giving with Live you have to export your set as a .wav and use iTunes or LAME to encode to mp3.

    why dont you just have a look at the available ableton emnus?
    you wouldnt even have to look far because its in the first one:

    file -> export audio/video

    All depends if you have it in the arrange view or in the live view. If you did not do an arrangement, you are pretty much out of luck, then you have to RECORD your live set and then convert it to mp3.

    Razorlame with Lame.exe is the best option if you never worked with Lame before If you need further help, then let me know

    Haven't tried RazorLAME yet, I do have to admit I am quite fond of Exact Audio Copy.
    Also quite an easy shell/interface for LAME.

    (For the rest, just like JesC said. )

    my arsenal:
    2x vestax pdx, numark dxm09, m-audio x session pro, and ableton live 6.

    I spin hip hop/electro/top 40

    Thanks for the input. I have everything in Session view so I guess thats why the export feature isnt showing up. So programs like LAME or Exact Audio Copy is what I need in this case than right? Im gonna give it a try and let you guys know the results. Thanks and Cheers

    Does it use the Lame Encoder? Cause the encoder is pretty much vital to the result
