Compressing WAV files?

Asked by DeanV (14208points) February 26th, 2010

So I’ve got an mp3 file that I converted over to .wav for a friend to put on his synthesizer, but the synth is limited to files under 4MB, and the WAV, when converted is a whopping 32mb. Is there any way I can make that file smaller without sacrificing a ton of quality. The bitrate isn’t too important, I just need to be able to hear the instruments.

Is this possible?

The only way we would be to split the file into shorter sections. WAV files are by their very nature uncompressed.

the only way i know (without splitting the file) is to change the sample rate of the wav file. i recommend the free tool audacity

Use audacity to break into smaller parts.
