Interesting nickname. :D

Why are you wanting to reduce the size?

If you don't mind losing part of it, you can cut it in WaveEditor.

I don't know if changing the sample rate or bitrate will reduce the size of the file.

There may be a way to compress a file and hopefully one of the experts will elaborate on this tomorrow.

Hi sweetcheeks82,

You can use the mp3Pro encoder. An mp3Pro file is about half size of an mp3 file, but the quality is the same. Both formats share the mp3 file extension.

You can find the mp3Pro encoder in the Nero Burning ROM application (Extras -> Encode Files) or in Nero Wave Editor (open the audio file, click on File > Save As and select the desired format).

Best regards,

Sweetcheeks lol.

I want to reduce them cause most of my audio tracks are at least 5mb, basically so i can fit more on a disc.

Cool, used Mp3pro, works a treat. Thanks infohelp. :D
