Audiophiles...you may want to sit down. We just upgraded all our artist's stores to support...drum roll please...High Definition Audio! The days of peddling measly MP3s to your forgiving fans are over. CDs are gone (remember CDs?), and so is the Red Book. Unleash your beautifully recorded WAVs, AIFFs, or FLAC files and tickle your fans' ears with attenuating cymbals and jiggle their undersides with full bodied bass.

Selling High Definition Audio


Remember when we forced you to upload a WAV file? And you were kind of annoyed? Well those WAV files you so carefully encoded and uploaded can now be added to your store! Just log in, edit the track, and set a price for your WAV file.


You can also upload AIFF and FLAC files from the same interface. Its easy. Here's a step by step.

  1. Log in to your dashboard.
  2. Head over to the Products page.
  3. Click Edit next to the product title.
  4. Click Edit next to the track you want to add files for.
  5. Click "Add Another File Format" to the right.
  6. Choose the type of file you want to upload, upload it, and you're done!

Creating New Products

Now when you set up a new product, all you have to do to create your tracks is choose your audio files. To get started, click Create New Product.


To create a single:

  1. Click Single.
  2. Enter the name of your single.
  3. Choose the audio file for your single.
  4. Upload a product photo.

To create an album:

  1. Click Album.
  2. Enter the name of your album.
  3. Choose all your audio files. You don't have to select one at a time, you can select a bunch and tracks will be created for each file you choose.
  4. Confirm the names of your tracks and upload your files.
  5. Upload a product photo.


Selling Digital Albums

Your fans can now buy your digital album in any format, and you can price them in any format! Simply upload files for all tracks, and the album settings will automatically appear. For example, if you want your fans to be able to purchase all your songs in WAV format, simply upload a WAV file for all your tracks in the album, and set the price of your WAV album!


How It Looks in Your Store

When you have a High Definition audio file available, it will be marked with an HD icon. Simply hover over the button to see what files are available for purchase.


Digital albums for every format available will be listed with all your album formats above the track list.
