 This is a Test Post | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:48:13

Gratcast is working on a new site layout. This is where all the show notes would be and the player should be up about. This mp3 compressor can compress mp3 audio and reduce mp3 file size, you can choose the audio quality setting as needed. The higher quality option will generate a larger file, and the lower quality option will generate a smaller file. The default quality option is to reduce file size as much as possible while maintaining audio quality. In general, all options can produce a smaller file than the original file.
