Anybody knows a free programm for MAC which can reduce MB of a WAV file?
You want to turn wav file into other format? I don't think you can make a wav file smaller and without changing the format without losing the quality, except if that is what you're looking for?
the track i finished is 52 MB Big thats way to much for a 5 minute song
i just want to reduce the MB size without losing the soundquality is that possible?
Nope. WAV is a lossness file. No compression. You'd be converting a lossy file. Such as a 320 mp3. Which is still decent quality but not as good a wav
Ah and how can i change the format to a HD mp3 is there a a programm you could recommend?
Can't you just export your track as a 320mp3?
you know how to in ableton?
you can use iTunes to convert wav into 320 mp3
Make the track shorter.
Convert it to flac. It's lossless and cuts the file size in half.
perfect i got it.thx
Sounds to me like its 24-bit, if you change it down to 16-Bit it should sound almost the same, and be around 30Mb.
From experience I would recommend using Switch http://switch-mac.en.softonic.com/mac
Flac gives you a close to 50pct lossless compression but it is no longer a wav but can easily be decoded into one.
