    Hi!!
    I received a PPS file with an embedded sound 676 KB which was the the complete Cheers soundtrack. PPs only embeds wav files and they are always much much larger than that...?????
    ok...I discovered on my windows recorder which records wav that there are different formats...PCM...ACELP.net...GSM...on and on..which are smaller sizes....the recorder will only record for one minute...so now comes the question...
    Is there a recorder available that will record wav files in a smaller format??? I want to be able to embed them in PPS files so that I can email them and depend on them playing...
    I have tried adding midi's and mp3's but the are not dependable...
    thanks..
    Joyy

    Use audacity: you can record and edit. Excellent freeware.
    http://audacity.sourceforge.net

    First record in PCM, then recompress to mp3 or WMA. WMA is the best for e-mail'ing. Stronger recompression. But the only free version of the compressor that I know of: WM8Eutil works only in DOS.
    You can get it on the Microsoft website (in media).



    Or make a search for "audio recorder"
    at
    http://www.winsite.com/ws_search.html
    and choose the free ones.

    Thanks Fred,

    I downloaded Audacity and was able to compress a wav file considerably..I'm anxious to learn how to use the different features. I like being able to make sound clips too.
    Until now I was using Musicmatch Jukebox to record and convert and could adjust the Mp3's to make them small enough to email.
