I have a ton of mp3 files whose duration is baout 30 seconds each. samples of the full track, if you will. Would it be better to convert them to wav or something since they are compariatively huuuuuge as mp3s?

...They would be smaller as WAV? I'm sure that WAVs are fully uncompressed and lossless, as opposed to MP3s, which are compressed and lossy. Really, what you should do is make sure the audio can be streamed.
