What are the audio requirements for vinyl pressing?

Updated 2 weeks ago by Support Team

We accept high-resolution WAV or AIFF files – the most optimal resolution and format for us is if you provide  WAV files per at 96 kHz / 24-bit (we support audio from 44.1kHz / 16-bit up to 192 kHz / 32-bit).

You can send us audio files peaking near 0 dBFS, but it is better not to get too close to 0 dBFS.  We suggest leaving some small headroom, around 0.1 - 0.5dB.  Please note that it is better not to use hard-limiters (brickwall, peak limiters) to a great extent. We may have to reduce the cutting levels if there are a lot of limited sections in the supplied audio.

Please submit your audio files through the vinyl audio section of your project dashboard.
