If you are planning to upload Apple Digital Masters (previously known as Mastered for iTunes) to your release, EmuBands can help. We can do this at no extra cost to you, by adding the free ADM upgrade to your release. To do this, please get in touch with your account manager after you’ve made payment for your release, but before you begin uploading your files.
We need to make a quick change to your release at our end, which will allow you to upload two sets of files: 1 x set of ADM WAVs (for iTunes & Apple Music), and 1 x set of 16-bit WAVs (for every other DSP).
If you upload your ADM files without the ADM upgrade being added to your release, the release will not show as an Apple Digital Master on iTunes/Apple Music.
As part of this process, your account manager will ask you to confirm the name and contact details of the mastering engineer / studio who created the Apple Digital Masters for you. This is to verify that they are part of the ADM/MFIT programme. Without verifying this information we are unable to deliver Apple Digital Masters for your release to iTunes/Apple Music.
If your files are unmastered, we can highly recommend Alchemy Mastering – just click on the ‘Mastering’ menu item once you are logged in to your account for more information.
