Wow Ivebeen just making alot of these things.
So Ive got a few songs I want to put on my website and I want to make an option for lowbandwith and high bandwith users. What would I do to these to change the size of the file. I think Im going to use both as MP3's.

Whatever editor you use you could maybe just export it to MP3 dropping all the settings down.

When you encode an MP3, you have several quality options. Near cd quality is 128 I believe and anything above that is cd quality. Creat two copies of your song and post links to the apropriate bandwidth quality. (You can encode less that 128 and depending on you goal, that may be a better idea for "Low Bandwidth".)

Aye...thats pretty close to my own thinking.

I think 160 is near CD Quality (128 is called "Good Tape" of you use dB Power Amp) and 192 is CD quality I belive.

Anything above that is an improvement but probably not really needed for the purposes of streaming...

Hope that helps.

No mp3 will ever be CD quality, since the format is inherently lossey.

128kbps 44khz stereo CBR is best for streaming.
24kbps 22khz mono CBR is best for lo-fi (modem users).

Whilst I agree MP3 can never be CD quality, the 192kbps is the closest comparison (or better) for purely comparative purposes.

The term "Good Tape" and "CD Quality" are from the good ole dB Power Amp app which I use for converting my WAV's to MP3 quickly. These are meant as a guide however and a likeness comparison.

But aye, you cannot have a CD quality MP3 as Waldo says, its a lossey format i.e. it chops part of the audible spectrum off to achieve its file size and compression ratio.
