Reducing file size for submission guidelines


Recommended Posts

Well, I'd recommend that you buy FLStudio, just for ease sake, I'm not sure how good of stuff can be done without saving... but how long is the song? Are you encoding in mp3? I've heard FLStudio's mp3 encoder isn't as good as some others, so maybe export to wav and encode mp3 with an external program.

Yeah, render to wave and then use LAME with the RazorLAME front-end. You can set up your encoding options. VBR with a lower upper-limit helps with filesize; set that to like 192 and you'll shave off quite a bit.

Also, this doesn't belong in Tutorials and Guides; it's just a question. Moved.

It's also good to try different VBR settings, like ABR (average bit rate). 64-256 is a good range in terms of the VBR itself, but you should tweak the quality setting and the ABR to see if you can get it as close to 6mb as possible. Seconded about RazorLAME.
