I was trying to email some tracks to a buddy but I was told the audio file is to big. Ive heard that if you convert them to MP3 or some other format it wont sound the same. Is this true? How bad will it effect it?

mp3 is great because it is small, but the quality does suffer. People say it is still CD quality, but they lie. Still, mp3 encoding does cut the file size down to about 10% of it's original size, but it is sprobably only a 40-50% quality loss, so all in all it's still a good bargain.

In the "Music on the Internet" section of our recording tips there is an article about mp3 encoding, you should read that. It will give you a little insight into mp3 and the encoding of it.

The main area of loss in encoding to mp3 is the highest and lowest end's of the tone's. If you use a good mp3 player to play them back, you cna brign back some of the lost low and high end, but not all of it. Otherwise it is a pretty good format to use for those purpose's.
