I have a tiny issue that I can't figure out how to fix. I've been trying to add a few songs to a level, but it quickly reaches a high file size from just a few songs.
I've seen other maps that have lots more than mine, so I know it's possible. I also have seen the "Edit Using Sound Previewer" and have tried it. However, I'll select a compression amount and hit okay, but then nothing happens. The main sound file stays the same large size.
For further specification, I'll compress a 50 megabyte or so file into what should be a 2 megabyte one, however it still takes up 50 megabytes of space in the editor as well as when I save the file.

Thanks in advance for your help!
