I put both. Sure, everyone can convert wav to mp3, but why bother :) When there are both mp3 and wav in the zip file, the buyers get more for their money and save time…

Do you think buyers are put off by only including the MP3 ? If so, I have wasted 10 months, because of my own stupidity :-( Thinking about it now I have no idea why I have not included the wave file as well as the MP3 . I have 5 tracks in the que for approval, do you think I should take them down and put the wave file with them and re-upload them to the que?

I think you should wait until they will approve … and then just update mp3 and add wav file!

Wait until they go up, then edit them, add the wav and send message to reviewer…

Okay so all my new stuff now goes up with WAV files included as well as mp3’s. The next question I want to ask is; are we allowed/should I included the WAV files for each track dry and each track mixed with FX and EQ? My reasoning is this, a buyer may hear something they like in a piece but are put off by some of the other instruments/phrases etc. Given the option to pull out a single phrase or instrument or track they may just be tempted because of the freedom it gives them when putting the music to their project.
