    Question MP3 Reduction Software

    Anyone know of any free software that allows you to reduce the size of an mp3 file aside from mp3 Resizer?

    I am not sure why you would want to do such a thing but Audacity will do it for you.

    Yea I don't see the point either but many programs will allow you to do this.

    You do realize every generation will provider worse and worse sound quality?

    audacity, media monkey, itunes, razorlame etc etc

    I guess he thinks the smaller file will still sound better?




    RIP THE CD AT A LOWER BIT RATE.

    If you delete the mp3 from your hard drive it will be 0 kbps, which is better than 96 kbps.

    Thanks for the tips, guys. I'm well aware that the lower bitrate = lower quality. I just needed to get the size of a couple of mp3 files under 5mb ea for a little project.

    Audacity worked like a charm. Thanks!

    agreed. anything lower than around 192 VBR tends to give me a headache after a while.

    JewFace probably wants to fit more songs on an MP3 player. I used to be the same way before I was conscious about sound quality... Though, I still can't tell the difference. I guess my ears aren't doing well.

    CDCopy was and will always be the best. I wish I could find the copy I had when it was free.
