To encode music from one codec into another codec for example, from RealAudio to MP3.
When it comes to sound compression, the DSP Group's TrueSpeech codec is about as small as it gets. This codec reduces the signal to 8,000 Hz, in mono, with a bit depth of 1. This means that the sound goes through at a rate of 1K per second--an eighth the size and rate of the smallest PCM audio files (like WAV and AIFF files) and a quarter the size of the smallest ADPCM files. Of course, they make everything sound like a so-so quality pay-phone call, but they're certainly small.
