Im looking to try and reduce the space a wav file takes up, without converting it or compressing it or anything like that. Just to reduce the actual MB's it has while still having it remain the same file type. =/

You can download the trial of WavePad from NCH's Website. It's a sound editor. You can try opening your file with it and then hit "save as", it'll give you saving options. Change the attributes. That will enlarge, reduce, or maintain the file size, depending on which you choose. You will lose sound quality if you reduce the file size, though. The nice thing about the program is that it is really small and can be easily removed and/or reinstalled very quickly. So, it's not a hassle when the trial expires.

Well, the problem is the file I initially started wiht was 246 kb's. When I converted it to wav, i jumped up to about 4 mb's. I managed to reduce it down to 1.5 mb's by playing wiht the quality and everything, I just dont understand how wav can turn something so simple into something so complicated. Ive ripped 5 MB mp3 songs off CD's into the same size, so I dont know how this 20 second clip can be 4 mb's, let alone the 1.5 either, im trying to aim for something around 500 kb =S

Bleh...........lol

Oh. lol

Yeah, that's just how wave files are. That's why mp3's got so popular. You know, the whole sound quality + small file deal. Though, wave's can have really good quality. I recorded some music from SSBB @ 1536kbps. The files were about 22mb for 2 minutes of music.

So what are you using wave files for anyway?

Cellphone ringtone. It doesnt let me play my own mp3's, or my waves dont seem to be able to go bigger than about 600 kb (Based on a pre installed on that is roughly that size). =/ lol
Even though some of the pre installed ringtones ARE mp3....=S
Stupid Nokia 6300....lol

Wave files are uncompressed, that's why they're so big. For a ringtone, I'd suggest just cutting it down to around 10 seconds, making it mono instead of stereo, and maybe making it < 20kHz if possible (since the sound quality of a cell phone speaker sucks anyway).
