Airshow clients’ interest in Apple’s “Mastered for iTunes” quality initiative is growing daily. Did you know that the same 24 bit master we create for your iTunes submission can be used to create additional high-res formats for sale to your fans?
A 24 bit master file delivers high-quality audio to listeners and can be distributed in multiple ways including:
- through HDtracks for sale as a 24-bit FLAC download.
- your own music store powered by Bandcamp as a 24-bit FLAC download.
- repurposed for release on vinyl.
Traditionally we furnish a 16-bit master for your CD release. The 24-bit master is considered a valuable add-on master part to your mastering session for a minimal additional cost.
Way back in 2012, we published our view: “High Res Audio’s Future Lies Outside the (Jewel) Box.” You can learn more about what our engineers see in the future of high-res listening in our short white paper right here in the Airshow Library.
