If you are exporting from a recording program or importing the audio from a CD (also called "ripping"), you can change the settings/preferences of your export to be 16 bit (sample size), 44.1 kHz (sample rate), 1411 kbps (bit rate) stereo WAV files.
Important: Your audio must meet the format specifications below to go live in the digital stores. Content holders are responsible for properly formatting their content.
Follow these instructions to convert your audio to 16 bit (sample size), 44.1 kHz (sample rate), 1411 kbps (bit rate) stereo WAV files in iTunes before you upload to Us:
Open the iTunes application on your computer.
Search for your song(s) in your iTunes Music Library and highlight it (do this by clicking once on the song).
Go to Preferences (On a Mac, this is under the iTunes drop down menu. On a PC, iTunes Version 10 or older, this is under the Edit drop down menu. On a PC, iTunes Version 11, this is under the square icon on the top left of your iTunes window).
Once you've clicked Preferences,make sure you are on the General tab. Go down to where it says Import Settings (if you have an older version of iTunes, you may have to click where it says Advanced and then click on Import Settings).
