    Default .wav vs. .mp3 and how do I compress them without losing qualiuty??? *HALP*

    I'll use this one sound clip I'm working with as an example but in general I would love to know the solution to this problem...


    I have a .wav file that's 2:01 long and it's 10.1 MB.
    (705kpbs) not sure if that's relevant or not...

    I can convert it to an .mp3 and it drops to 824KB
    (54kbps) still not sure if that's relevant or not...

    Anyway....

    Is there any reliable way to compress it as a .wav file and still maintain relative audio quality? Without spending a lot of money on audio editing equipment?

    Thanks in advance...

    FLAC - Free Lossless Audio Codec

    No such thing as a lossless mp3.

    as an audiophile, I love what modern technology has to offer, but digital loss always bums me out.

    You need to encode it to a higher quality mp3. 192k or even higher and not 54k, which is ****. Every convertor program should have a setting to choose what bitrate to encode it at.

    You can make it mp3 but use a real high sampling rate like 320 and only your dog will hear the difference.

    Not true. FLAC is compression without loss.
