    I always use Switch, nice little freeware program which does nothing but convert from wav to mp3. But that it does conveniently well.

    After you install the Lame file you can drag the recording straight out of Traktor into Audacity. Go to file>export and you'll be able name the track. There's also an options tab where you can tell Audacity to save it as an mp3 and what bit rate 320K is the norm for songs. but I save all my mixes at 192k. It saves quite a bit of space and since they're mixes and not songs and they're meant to really play out, but more just listen to.
