There's a good selection of MP3 encoders there, including some all-in-one
programs that will rip the audio data from CD and encode it automatically
I don't have a clue how you've managed to take a 2.4MB .wav file and turn it
into a 44MB MP3; that's very odd, because it should be the other way around.
At the most commonly used bitrate (128Kbps), MP3 audio data takes about
1MB/minute, and sounds almost as good (to the untrained ear, anyway) as the
original CD .wav file that was 10 times larger.
Hope this helps..

The Montrel Expos - going out with a bang in 2003!
I am looking for some help. I am trying to find a way to take several wav
files and "mix" them into a final wav file to disk. This will not be a
simple concatenation of files. For example: I will have one 5-minute wav
file and 5 other short wav files of various lengths ranging from 10-30
seconds. I need to end up with a final wav file that is 5 minutes long that
has the short wav files "mixed" into the long wav file. This will include
"fade downs" of the long file before each short file is played, and then
"fade ups" after each short file is finished (like a radio commercial). I
think this will prove to be most difficult unless I can find some APIs to do
this for me. Most of the information I have found is just file formats for
wav files. I also took an initial glance at the MCI functions, and they
seemed to deal more with playing and mixing wav files coming from disk with
the intention of being "played" through the sound card. I know there are
products off the shelf that will do this for me, but that won't do in this
case (it a requirement from the client). Any help or directions on where to
look would be helpful.
