The WAV audio format is one of the best-known formats. It provides high-quality sound, but the file size can be rather large. This means you may need to compress the WAV file before using it for email or uploading it to a website. Movavi’s WAV compressor can help you reduce the file size by changing the format of your audio. When the file is converted, the size of the resulting file will be smaller. Here’s how to perform the conversion.

Step 1. Download and run Movavi Video Converter

Download the installation file from our website and launch it. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the program.

Step 2. Add your audio files

In the main window, click the Add Media button, then choose the Add Audio option. You’ll see a new window, where you can locate your .wav files and add them to the program using the Open button.

Step 3. Choose the output format

After adding the files, set the conversion parameters. Click the Audio tab and choose one of the preset groups listed there. Almost all the formats you see will require less space than the WAV. For example, if you are going to play back your soundtrack in Windows, hit the WMA group, and for Mac, choose the AAC group. After you have chosen the group, select the preset that suits your needs best.
