How to Resize an MP3 File


MP3 files are audio files that can be burned to a CD or played on your MP3 player. Because of the nature of these media, space is limited. As a result, the ability to resize an MP3 file can be useful for saving space and fitting more music onto your MP3 player or CD. MP3Resizer is a lightweight tool that can help you down-sample your files, but you can use other similar programs, such as MP3 Reduce II.

Things You'll Need

  • MP3Resizer (or MP3 Reduce II)
  • Download and install the MP3Resizer software (See Resources).

  • Launch the MP3Resizer software.

  • Click the "Add Files" button on the tool bar.

  • Locate the MP3 file you want to resize. Click "OK."

  • Set the options for your down-sample. The process will reduce the sound quality and make the resulting audio file smaller than the original.

  • Click the "Preview file" button on the toolbar to hear the difference between your original file and your down-sampled file.

  • Click the "Resize!" button on the right sidebar. The smaller file will be created and can be burned to a CD or transferred to an MP3 player.

Tips & Warnings

  • MP3Resizer is freely downloadable as a trial version. If you intend on using MP3Resizer at length, you'll have to purchase the full version.
