    Hi all,
    Is there any software or encoding method available that will encode a wav file to an mp3 at a specified filesize? For example, I would input a wav file and set the resultant filesize of the mp3 to 25 mb or less and the software would generate the settings for the mp3 file automatically.

  2. The definition of bitrate is:

    Code:
    bitrate = size / running time
    For mp3 size is expressed in bits and time is expressed in seconds.

    Example: for a 3 minute 30 second audio file (210 seconds), to be 5,000,000 bytes (40,000,000 bits):

    Code:
    bitrate = 40,000,000 bits / 210 seconds
    bitrate = ~190,476 bits per second
    bitrate = ~190 kbps
