Audio Settings

What style should I use?

  • Pop: Suited for most pop genres with bass presence, balanced mids, and bright high frequencies. Use the advanced EQ settings to further adapt the algorithm to your track:
    • Deep: For modern and dynamic pop genres with an emphasis on low-end.
    • Gentle: When a focus on vocals is desired
    • Bright: Increase brightness, ideal for high-energy mixes, particularly on fast tempo songs
    • Smooth: Smoothes high-end frequencies, ideal for vocal or instrumental songs and chill electro-pop.
  • Rock: Suited for most Rock songs with guitars and drums. Use the advanced EQ settings to further adapt the algorithm for sub-genre:
    • Deep: Great for more modern genres which require a solid low end like metal or heavy rock.
    • Gentle: Perfect for lighter or more vintage genres of rock.
    • Bright: Boosts the high mids for brightness—suits metal or fast tempo rock.
    • Smooth: Ideal to focus on high-mid musicality, and for milder genres of rock.
  • EDM: great for most EDM styles with powerful bass, high-frequency details, and openness.
    • Deep: For bass and sub-focused mixes, great for modern bass-centric music
    • Gentle: Focus on the mix’s punch and impact. Good fit for techno/dance
    • Bright: Highlight high-end frequencies for brightness and presence, ideal for high-energy EDM (drum and bass, dance, dubstep…)
    • Smooth: Smooth high-end balance, good for EDM, experimental, and slow BPM songs.
  • Hip-Hop: Fits most hip/hop and rap songs with tight low-end and high-frequency clarity
    • Deep: Focuses on sub lows, great for modern rap/hip-hop styles.
    • Gentle: Ideal for chill/old-school beats, with more emphasis on mids.
    • Bright: Enhances high frequencies for clarity and detail on snares and hi-hats. Perfect for modern hip-hop genres.
    • Smooth: Warm and smooth high end. Suits chill/old-school type beats.
  • Universal: Well adapted for all types of music. You cannot go wrong with this setting
    • Deep: Adapted for modern and dynamic productions with more low-end focus
    • Gentle: Adapted for a more vintage sound or for slow rhythm music
    • Bright: Adapted for high-energy modern productions with more rhythm
    • Smooth: Adapted for a more vintage sound or for slow rhythm music and instrumentals
  • Instrumental: Adapted for acoustic recordings and/or instrumental tracks with a focus on the mids.
    • Deep: Adapted for more modern recordings with a focus on the low-end or bass drums.
    • Gentle: Adapted for classical music recordings with a strong focus on the midrange
    • Bright: Adapted for recordings with more rhythm and acoustic drums
    • Smooth: Adapted for classical music recordings with a strong focus on the mid range.

What loudness audio settings should I apply?

  • Standard: around -14dB LUFS. Perfect for all streaming platforms
    • This setting is compliant with all the streaming platforms’ recommendations, and is designed to preserve dynamics wherever possible. It’s also the most suited setting for a vinyl export.
  • Medium: around -11dB LUFS. Recommended for louder streaming services
    • This setting boosts the loudness to fit special profiles, like Spotify Loud.
  • Loud: around -8dB LUFS. Charts average loudness, CD level
    • This setting is useful if you want to distribute your track everywhere, especially for CD manufacturing. It will be loud enough to compare with the charts, but note that you will lose dynamics compared to the other settings.


What compression setting should I use?

  • Balanced: Transparent compression that glues everything together while maintaining the original dynamics of the song.
  • Punchy: Highlights the transients and increases the dynamics.
  • Aggressive: For a more compressed and tight sound. This setting may help reduce the distortion/pumping of the Loud setting.

What stereo setting should I use?

  • Balanced: Subtly increases the stereo width while maintaining positive phase
  • Wider: More width, but be careful as we cannot guarantee that the phase stays positive.

What are the requirements for the audio files type I can submit?

  • Supported format: .wav stereo only. Mono files are not supported.
  • Recommended sample rates: 44.1kHz, 48kHz
  • No recommendations on the bit depth
  • Maximum file size/duration: 200MB / 15 minutes
  • Minimum duration : 1 second
