    Sounds like you want to stick it on an ipod or upload it to soundcloud etc. Export as audio, 96Khz sample rate, 24 bit, the output ends up huge yes. Next open up the produced .wav file in something like audacity, set the preferences (set the bitrate to 128 or 320) and export it as an mp3. Should get the size down to something like 10MB for you.

    after i export as audio file, i just right click, and open in iTunes. There i can easily convert to mp3 and throw it on my iPod. I'm sure thats what most people do.

    Why doesn't Reason have the option to export as mp3 in the first place? I know GarageBand does that.

    all of reason just works on a wav basis, you can only use wav samples and export wav but i dont mind coz they are good quality

    you could probably get away with exporting it as a 44.1khz wav. most mp3s, especially lower bitrates, will chop off anything higher than 16khz, so 96khz is pretty much overkill.

    you must all realise that really it's all about the .wav.
