hey guys.... ive been wondering why the music i record with the program "Audacity" is becoming such a large file! :thumbsup: :flowers: For example... ive got a 4 min song, and the file is literaly 50 MB !!!!! THATS HUGE!! i have no clue whats causing this because ive got like little 30 sec clips and they're coming out to be big too. Also i looked at some regular music on my computer..... for example stairway to heaven is like a 7 minute song, but the file isnt even close to 50 MB..... if anyone can help, its much appreciated...
ive got windows ME and im recording this stuff thru a basic mic that came with the computer

thanks again

Different file formats.
Your 4 minute song is probably a .wav file and I would guess your 7 minute LZ song is an mp3, which uses about 1\10th the space. Check the file extensions to see which is which.

Try exporting from Audacity in .mp3 format, at 128kbs.
That should give you about 1MB per 1 minute of music.

A little information on some common audio formats:
