Audio file formats for Spotify
Deliver your audio files to us in FLAC or WAV format (we highly recommend FLAC).
When we get your audio files, we do the following:
- Check they aren’t corrupt and the format container is known
- Transcode the file into different delivery formats for our audio quality options:
- Ogg/Vorbis (96, 160, 320 kbps)
- AAC (128, 256 kbps)
- HE-AACv2 (24kbps)
- Calculate the loudness of the whole release and individual tracks using the ITU 1770 standard
We also encrypt the audio files before they’re delivered to the platform.
