Default Issue bouncing loop mp3s

I am trying to prepare some music loops for a client. Here is the problem. When i bounce them as aiff they sound great and hte loops are smooth. When i bounce them as mp3s however, bits of silence are added to the beginning/end of the region - making it not loop properly. ANy ideas?!! Thanks

Default Re: Issue bouncing loop mp3s

Unfortunately, this is a function of the mp3 CODEC itself which is not proprietary Digidesign software. A bit of padding is added to the beginning and end of each bounce (usually around 1000 samples or so). There is no work-around for this right now, other than to bounce to .wav or .aif files instead.

Best regards,

Try converting the wav to mp3 in Itunes. This worked for me a while ago...
