    you mean the .wav file is huge? yep, they're massive. you'll have to export it as a wav and then use something like the LAME mp3 encoder to make it into an mp3.
    16-bit 44.1khz are what cd's are (i'm pretty sure..) higher samplerates are pretty much unnecessary. if you're going to be putting the exported song into some other daw to do more stuff to it, you might want to export it as a 24-bit file.

    if you think that song will ever get a release then keep that .wav

    or i guess since you should be keeping your reason file you could always go back and export another. ... but yeah. reason exports as wav.

    just get a free file converter like switch sound or something, and convert that wav to a 320, and probably even a 192 to fit on myspace. etc.

    just export the song, you need the wav to make an mp3 anyway

    try using audio catalyst if you aint got a mp3 encoder, its free and easy to use
