You’ll upload audio files each time you submit a release for distribution. There are certain audio guidelines you must adhere to so that your product can be delivered to the services and distributed successfully. If any aspect of your audio files are not to spec, the Uploader will not accept the files you attempt to submit.
The audio file requirements are as follows:
- Supported bit depths: 16-bit / 24-bit (preferred)
- Supported sample rates: 44.1 kHz / 48 kHz / 88.2 kHz / 96 kHz (preferred)
- WAV files (we cannot accept mp3 files)
Note: These are the requirements for standard audio files. If you’re planning on uploading Apple Digital Masters, please find more information about requirements here.
