    Hello, i this small sound clip (mp3 format) id like to reduce in size. it is currently 470 kb but i need to get it to under 400 kb. how would i be able to do that without cutting out parts of the sound track? im willing to take a little reduction in sound quality though. thanks!

    Hi, welcome to TSG.

    You can convert it to a lower bitrate, the file size will get smaller and the quality will go down a little bit. Go one step down in the bitrate, so if the current bitrate is 128 kbps, convert it to 112 kbps.

    You could use CDex to do the conversion. It's a freeware CD ripper, but it will also convert files to different bitrates and formats.

    There are 2 means of minimizing the size of an audio clip without loosing any part. 1st you can compress it via using any compression utility like winrar or winzip etc, 2nd reduce its sound quality via some software like JetAudio.
