Ok, so I haven’t really given this much thought in the past but now that I’m going to be uploading a ton of my new material I was wondering in terms of experience from people here as to what tends to sell better: uploading only the .wav file or the .wav files + 320kbps mp3?
Any difference there? Looking around at the best selling files it does appear they all contain the 320kbps .mp3 as well. I guess that is the recommended way to do it to ensure the highest selling potential?
Why not always upload both, WAv & mp3? That’s what i do. Some people probably prefer mp3 or WAV , for what reason ever, because i agree that WAV should be enough. But because it’s not a big deal to upload the mp3 as well, it offers the highest flexibility and you won’t loose customers because of that… But of course, in case you upload only one format, WAV would be the one you should use, even when the mp3 sounds (almost) the same. But after additional processing the MP3 format would could loose much more quality than a WAV file.
For some reason, I thought we needed both? Maybe I misread something. I always include both!
Just upload both. It doesn’t really take anything away from you, but adds additional content for a buyer, if they choose to want one or the other. If they want an mp3 version, they’re covered. Wav version, they’re covered. Include both, and you don’t need to worry
Working with MP3 is kind of unprofessional, besides it doesn’t loop seamlessly, so I never upload MP3 . If anybody, for whatever strange reason, prefers a lossy format he can always downgrade the WAV file himself.
Yep, it always add some milliseconds to an end, so this healthy recipe is not for the loops.
