Change Mp3 Audio Bitrate To Reduce Size

If you are looking to reduce the size of a large mp3 file, lets say an audio podcast, Mp3 Bitrate Changer will come useful. It does not magically reduce the file size, rather it compresses to a user-defined bitrate. Let me warn you that lower bitrate would mean small decrease in audio quality, so unless it is not necessary, you should not change the bitrate.

What makes it actually useful is the live estimation of output size and ability to preview it before converting. It supports all Mp3 bitrates specified in MPEG-1 Layer 3 Standard: 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 160, 192, 224, 256 and 320 kbit/s.
