To ensure that your music meets the necessary audio file requirements for distribution on Unchained Music, please adhere to the following guidelines:
Mastering: Before distribution, it is essential that all audio files have undergone a mastering process to meet industry standards. Failure to do so may result in rejection during our quality assurance process.
File Formats: Accepted audio file formats include:
- WAV at 16-bit depth, 44.1kHz, stereo.
- FLAC at 16-bit depth, 44.1kHz, stereo.
Audio Quality: Audio files should be of high quality and free from background noise and sound imperfections.
Silences or Pauses: Tracks should not contain extended silences, pauses, or dead space at the end. If a song ends with silence, it should not exceed ten seconds in duration. Distributing tracks that consist primarily or entirely of silence is not allowed.
Minimum Track Length:
- For singles, a song must have a duration of more than 60 seconds to prevent potential issues related to click fraud.
- For albums, streaming services typically require an average track length of more than 60 seconds.
