    I have just noticed that im recording with (lossless) quality settings and my recordings are huge. I need to tarnish quality of my audio files now becuz my 5 min record is 100 MB and its way too much.

    they are .wav files btw

    any Idea?

    You can also use ffmpeg if you're familiar with a terminal.

    ffmpeg -i name.wav name.mp3

    Super convenient
