If you're using Windows, you can try the conversion program indicated on the Online Auditions page (dBpowerAMP Music Converter).
See, I only revert to Windows when I see no other solution in Linux. And, as it turned out, it was not all that difficult to do. Just download and install another rpm, look up the manual, find out spaces in the filename are not allowed, and off we go! 8)

Ogg is also allowed. 8)

and ANY decent Linux distro comes with an Ogg encoder. :D

and it's easy to do "console-wise" :P

and... and... and... JUST SEND IT! !!! :P
I tried ogg-ing a .wav too, but to me it seemed the default compression rate was rather low, so the size-loss was not that large. And no, there's no decent Linux distro on my CD, since SuSe only allows CD1 to be downloaded for free, and not CD2 (which you have to buy). Ofcourse, everything that's on CD2 can be downloaded just as well, but it just takes a bit more time. I agree it was easy to do console-wise, but I couldn't have known that before I read the right manual now could I?

Now, about that sending part, where should I send my 'lame excuses posing as an audition'.mp3's to? :P

That poses a slight problem. My homepage-provider doesn't allow mp3's to be put there. :-\ (Silly rules about mp3's being bad... They're my own creation! :furious: )
So, in order to circumvent those rules, I uploaded them with the .wav-extension, but they're definitely mp3, so beware when d/l-ing them, your sound player might say it's an invalid file.

Copycat - Male Comic - 1st (and only) try.
Copycat - Male Evil - 1st try.
Copycat - Male Evil - 2nd try.
Copycat - Male Heroic - 1st try.
Copycat - Male Heroic - 2nd try.

So, is that proof enough of the rubbishness of my voice? :P
