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.
