Tape to CD?

I’m trying to get a tape recording my dad did on to one CD, if I can.

I’m using Audacity to transfer the recording onto the PC; I have the settings at 16 bit and 8000 Hz

But it’s still coming out too big for one CD, and I don’t want to make it MP3.


Any other way I can do this, it’s not a great recording so it’s not like it has to sound great.

Why not two CD's and go to 15K?
Is it music or speech?

audio cds shouldnt care about file size, it should just be time.

If its less than 80mins, and its a 700mb cd, it shouldnt matter.

If sound quality doesnt matter, why not mp3 or other compressed formats? Or DVD?

I suspect he wants to make it play in any CD player.
Why not 2 CDs?

If it's going to CD it doesn't matter what format you record in - It'll end up at 44.1kS, 16 bit stereo regardless.

So you're stuck with 80 minutes on the CD - if it's a full C90 or C120 tape, you're stuck with 2 CDs.
