    So I made a song using garage band, and I want to upload it to dmusic. The problem is, it's a really big file for some reason (40mb) and the dmusic limit is 12mb.

    Does anyone know if there is any application that will make audio file smaller?

    You probably have an AIFF right now. You can export it to iTunes, then convert it to something easier to move around (MP3's probably what you should pick in the iTunes preferences for something like that.)

    Thanks for the replay :)

    I exported it to itunes already, and it was in .aif format. The garageband file was around 140mb before I did lol. And it's only one song ffs!

    I converted it to .mp3 by renaming it, so I now have a 40mb .mp3 file. Is there any way to make this 12mb or under?

    Beautiful Vancouver British Columbia, Canada

    Try changing the settings in iTunes Prefs>Advanced>importing to Mp3 128 bit rate.

    That's as small as it will get.
