Reduce MP3 FileSize

Want to make your mp3 files smaller without losing out much on quality? Here's a nice and small software to do it.
MP3 Quality Modifier is a free program to change attributes like bitrate, frequency etc of the file. In simple words, reduce the bitrate to reduce the size. So here's how to do it.

Change Mp3 filesize and quality by changing bitrate
1. Download MP3 Quality Modifier and unzip it.
2. Run the program (No installation is required).
3. Click the 'Add Files' button to select the files to modify.
4. Leave the settings to its default. Select a bitrate of your choice if you want; default is 130 Kbps.
130 is quite good for computer use. A thing to remember is, lower bitrate means lower quality. A bitrate of 164, 192 or 256 is almost as good as the original quality but that would also increase the filesize. So choose what makes you happy.
5. Hit 'Start Process' and that should do it.
