    Default Converting Large files to MP3

    I made a mash-up of 2 songs and recorded it, but the files size now is huge! :O i used two songs around 10MBs each but the 5 minute mash-up came out to be over 50MBS... I want to convert it to a 320kbps file to upload to soundcloud. Are there any free ways of doing this?

    Goldwave or Audacity with the LAME MP3 encoder.

    Don't use those gimmicky freeware programs if you care about quality and want decent encode options.

    mmm maybe some of those cheesy free ones :

    lamedrop is free and is the best encoder around - just drop your files on it and wait for the goodness.

    As SirReal said. If you are on a MacBook, Itunes can do this for you no problem. Otherwise I've used Audacity as I had it installed for other purposes. You will need to install the LAME encoder however.

    Yes sir you are indeed correct. Not having Itunes on any on my win7 machines, I appear to have forgotten that it's multi platform .
