If you want to make some of your wav files smaller, try
For example many fun chat wavs are in PCM format and are actually very
On my Chat Fun Wav site all the sounds are already compressed and ready
to use in chat.
If you go through your media list and see many of these
that are very
large you can compress them and they sound great and a much smaller file.
You can ALSO compress wav.s that you already have on file with
the sound recorder (example)-I took some that were 1 meg or
even 5 meg and made them into 185KB or 340KB..and they sound fine.
I found it is best to copy a song to another file or diskette,
then if I want to choose other attributes I still have original
to work with again...Once it is compressed, you can't
get it back the other way and make it sound good.
(then you can delete copy to save space)
Open sound recorder. (Mine is found in start, programs,
Open song or sound clip.
Choose convert now-
(on my list it is above pcm on list)
Attribute -try 20 Kbits 11025 Mono 2 kb.. (this is a good average one to choose)
On full song wav.s you may want stereo. Just sample both and see how they sound
It Compresses----when done:
Close recorder and CHOOSE YES TO SAVE CHANGES (If you noted how
large file was...go see how small it is now!)
If you have ripped a song from a CD and it is a huge file, you can compress it in the
Sound Recorder also.
Have Fun and save disk space at the same time.
