So I’m mixing down an album and I noticed something strange.
One track is 53.4 MB big, duration is 3:05.
Another track is 39.5 MB but this one is 3:43 long.
Both are wav. files, both 44.1/16 bit, I’ve exported the large track twice and the 53.4 MB size is the same each time. I’ve imported them back into Cubase and the files both check out - no added silence from a misplaced marker, etc.
As .wav files are lossless and uncompressed, I’m completely stumped as to why a shorter track should result in a larger file. I’m reluctant to send these files off to my publishers until i can figure this out. Can anyone shed any light on this?
