There is no a direct way currently now ( you can export it to MIDI, and then convert it with an external software )
but we have plans (and something done) to export to Audio ( .wav .mp3 .ogg, to choise by user ) by using Gervill technology

Actually, if your PC has a headphone jack and a microphone jack, and you have a 1/8 inch audio cable with jacks on both sides, you can plug in one jack into the headphone slot, one into the microphone slot, and then, using a recording program like audacity, press "record" and play the song on tuxguitar. it'll record the song in the exact quality it's being exported, then you can convert it to mp3.

No, it is impossible.
mp3 format, is an encoded raw audio file ( there is no information about notes, durations, etc )

There is one plugin done "tuxguitar-gervill" that exports to audio with gervill synth.
but we didn't make a default build of it, because you need to have gervill installed in your java runtime..
so it may work only if you have openjdk, of if you manually install gervill..
Then, export to Audio is abstract.. you'll see a list of output formats to select, as default .wav, to export to other formats you'll need to have audio plugins installed on java..

Follow these procedures:

1) install Audacity

2) install an audio routing software, for mac osx I use Soundflower, for Linux there's Jack.

3a)If you're using Soundflower: go in the system audio preferences and set your audio routing application as default input and as default output; go in the Audacity preferences and set the record input as "Soundflower"; leave the record output as default system output.

3b) (do not consider this if you're using Soundflower) If you're using Jack the procedure is similar as the above, but I don't trick with Jack. I suppose anyway Iyou have to trick inside the Jack gui with inputs and outputs with no matter of Audacity and system audio settings.

4) Turn on the record button on Audacity and then turn on the play button on TuxGuitar. Probably you'll hear some delay due to the latency of the internal sound. If you're pissed of that just slide to zero the output volume but leave high the recording volume knob in Audacity

5) Dome. Export your Audacity file in the format you prefer (mp3 wav ogg etc.)

Hope this helps. Cheers
