    does anyone know of any good software that will allow you
    to shrink your mp3 files without sacrifing SQ

    No matter what program you use shrinking an MP3 file is going to sacrifice some sound quality. It's just a matter if you can hear it or not. As for programs, there used to be a great one called dbPowerAmp, but last i checked they charge for the MP3 part of it now. The only other thing I can think of is a CD ripper called CDex has an MP3 transcoder built into it.

    Use a splitter to cut them in half. They'll be smaller and you'll maintain the same sound quality.

    (sorry, couldn't resist...)

    Why would you want to shrink mp3's?Is it to conserve memory?

    I don't know any free programs that does it.

    You want to save it at 128 k bits. It's good. Anything less than that will be terrible and higher than that, better quality.
