using cool edit, is there a way for me to take a wav file, and make it smaller so it will run in another prog?  I need to make it smaller in K, without making it shorter

Wave files cann't be compressed.. So that you can use .ram files which is very compressed.

Yes and No.

What you can do if you have a stereo file is convert it to mono, this'll make it half the size. Also if it's say 44Khz, you could downsample/resample it to 22Khz, or even 11Khz, these will half and quarter it respectively.

For this to work, the program you are goind to use in in has to be able to use different spec .wav files. Some programs like to have 44Khz Stereo and thats that. Give it a go and see.
