Hello,
What is an easy way to manipulate .wav files?
1) I have some .wav files that are 5 times the size of the same content in .mp3 format. How can I easily convert these .wav files to mp3?
2) How can I save a portion of a .wav file (speech) to another file?
I'm using XP pro and Media player 11
Thanks

The freeware Audacity can edit an Audio file and extract parts of it ... And save it as a wav or mp3

It is also possible to create a wav file from a mp3 .. With the same file size as the mp3 ...
or convert a wav to a mp3 with the freeware CDex

How about that, you learn something new every day.

So it has a .wav extension but if you look at the properties it still says MPEG layer-3 and gives the compressed bit-rate.

Have you found a use for a file like this?

You can thank my neighbors bag of tricks for this one.
I had to create a PP show for a friend's presentation ... And couldn't figure out how to Embed the audio for the header and trailer.
But, I knew who to ask :D ... Then he got tricky and cut the file size several MB
