How to compress projects down to less than 10MB?

Hi Ablers,


There's an online radio station that you can upload projects but the song limit is 10MB data.


How do I compress a 3-4min 40MB song to less than 10MB? Zipping only takes it to 32MB...

Does freezing every track separately help this?


Thanks in advance.

    The radio station wants your Ableton project? If this is the case it's very odd to set the limit at 10MB.

    It's more likely they want your song as an mp3 file or similar. Export the song without dithering in 24bit if that's the setting you're using in your project and convert it to a 16bit/44.1Khz MP3 with software like XLD. You can probably get under 10MB with 256 kbps VBR, but that depends on the length and content of your song. Make sure you use LAME encoding as it typically sounds better.
