    But don't save tracks as mp3!

    Always save as wave! Always save noncompressed, highest quality in case you want to work on the track in the future. You can't decompress!

    If you don't have enough disk space, upgrade or delete your porn.

    I don't think reason saves to mp3. Maybe in the new version, but as above, it is a shit idea.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooo

    Wouldn't you just use the project file rather than the wav?

    Because it still means opening Reason the first time you need the wav file (say to put it through a wringer in another program) and hoping you've still the samples etc.

    Project and sample files tend to get... modified as in trashed in many different ways. As many backups in as many way as possible in as many places as possible is the idea.

    I once saved a couple of projects as 128 mp3 in a program and nowa couple of years later on I'm fucked because the program stopped working and I've deleted the samples I used. Real story.

    Reason does not export to MP3. You have to export to wave then convert using wavelab, audacity, or soundforge or something of that nature.

    It's been a long time since I stopped listening to music on my iPod, but I think it does accept wav files?

    Anyways, you can always get a 3rd party program to render it from wav to mp3.

    If you use reason you need another program to convert to mp3

    i export, then i convert with switch

    Exactly this - export to wav like everyone else has said - then convert to MP3 using switch - then I import the MP3 into Wavelab to amplify by about 120% so as to blast my eardrums later.
