    Hey Guys,

    Please help me, i use some pre-installed PCI Audio application to record my songs on the computer, but each songs turn out to be huge in size ( 20 - 30 MB per song!!!! :shock: ). Looking for some advice on what software to use to record songs.

    Thanks in advance,

    No probs
    U record your songs using whatever software u are using.

    U just require an encoder that will convert you wave (.wav) file to mp3 or ogg.
    That wil reduce the size 10 fold.

    PM me.
    I may send you one encoder.

    Do you record to wave or to mp3?

    20-30 megs for a regular mp3 is weird :p If it's a wave though you can convert it to mp3 and reduce it to a tenth of the size, google and try one of the myriad converters available online.

    IMHO Audacity is cool for converting single files cause it lets you play with the audio a bit as well :) [] but you'll still need to find the LAME (or BladeEnc) encoder DLL to go with it.

    Guys thanks for your replies...but the recorder ( It came as a free software with my sound card) records it to an mp3 file not wave..... and 20 Megs for a Mp3 file is too weird.... thats why i wanted to switch to a new software to record songs.

    Why dont you try doing this:

    Right click on the Audacity exe file.
    Go to properties ---> compatibility and check on Windows98/Me option.
