MFiT stands for Mastered for iTunes. These tracks are specifically mastered for optimal listening on iTunes/Apple Music and iOS devices. They are always 24-bit, which is a higher resolution than standard 16-bit digital audio masters.
It’s important to ensure that the mastering house you’re using is approved by iTunes and are on their approved MFiT providers list.
If you’d like to deliver an MFiT product please follow the below steps:
- Upload your product as normal but add a 24-bit audio file at a sampling rate of either 44.1, 48 or 96 kHz
- In the "Additional Comments" section on the last stage of the AWAL Uploader, ensure you include the mastering house used, engineer’s name and email address. It’s important that these are correct, as delivery will fail
- Our team will check those details against the list of approved MFiT providers
- Once confirmed, we will then create an MFiT version of the product for iTunes/Apple Music and send a standard version to all other services. Our system will convert the 24-bit files to 16-bit for DSPs that require this quality.
