Making sound files smaller? - The Phantom Librarian

Making sound files smaller?
Well, I was going to contribute my nasal, r-heavy accent to mctabby's question about whether or not Gryffindor sounds like Ravenclaw, so I plugged in my microphone and learned to record, but, um... 12 seconds is 1.5MB?

I know how to cut file size in graphics (most resolution can be dropped to 72dpi without changing its display on the 'net, since most browsers will only show 72dpi), but I have no idea how to do it in sound. Any suggestions?

I don't know what the parameters are, but would a phone post work? You've got a paid account, so you can make a post-by-phone if that's sufficient for McTabby's purpose. Then size might not matter?

Sounds like you recorded a .wav file. If so, converting it to .mp3 would make it much smaller.

Ah, yes. I can tweak it to do that. It's still a big file, but not, like, obnoxious.

I'll see what I have access to do in my software. It's too late for the question that I was trying to answer, but now I want to learn sound, goshdarnitall.
